Was F. Gary Gray too young for this?

Even though Gray had already proven he could be successful with his surprise blockbuster, Friday, the critics thought his immaturity showed in Set It Off. Though USA Today’s Susan Wloszczyna said the film was “more fun to watch than it has any right to be”she still slammed it, calling the movie, “overlong, overdone and over-wrought.” Another critic,  Kenneth Turan, of the Los Angeles Times, said the film was “characterized by the youthful director tendency to be overambitious.” But our buddy Roger Ebert had a more positive view of the film. Though he acknowledged that there were flaws in the picture, he said that Set It Off both “surprised and moved him.”
