“Both Turf War, dealing with gangs and weapons, and Outrage, dealing with punk anger and robbery, are full of male testosterone, fighting and posturing. On the other hand, no one prostitutes themselves, no one steals cars, no one takes or deals drugs and even the swearing is implied.” – from the Resource Links review.
