New Jersey Drive movie scenes

The film was directed and written by Nick Gomez; produced by Larry Meistrich and Bob Gosse; executive production was credited to filmmaker Spike Lee. At the time, the city of Newark had the highest automobile theft rate in the country, and ex-city mayor Sharpe James refused to allow filming of New Jersey Drive within the city limits; therefore, the filming locations were in the surrounding locations of Newark rather than the city itself. Most of New Jersey Drive was also filmed in several New Jersey and New York locations, including East Orange, Elizabeth and Paterson; Brooklyn, Queens, Yonkers and Harlem.

As Jason is heading to juvenile detention his previous actions unfold in a series of flashbacks – the incidents leading to his arrest. First he sees his violent and poverty-ridden project; next his dead-end delinquent friends are introduced, as is their pastime of joy riding. Soon some of the teens, including Jason, begin to steal cars and sell them to a sleazy chop-shop owner for pennies on the dollar. Eventually they are caught in a police sting and one boy is shot to death by the crooked Officer Emil Roscoe. Roscoe warns Jason not to tell anyone; however, the boys continue to steal cars. Meanwhile, Jason beats up a neighborhood acquaintance, Richie, on the playground for a slight to his sister and finds himself the target of the boy's murder attempts. The action draws to a head as both Roscoe and the vengeful boy close in.
