When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story is a 2017 film based on a true story that explores the events leading up to the murder of three men by Falicia Blakely in Atlanta in 2002. The film stars Lil Mama as Falicia, Lance Gross as Dino, and Tami Roman as Big Momma, who all deliver powerful performances that bring this tragic and complex story to life.

The film begins with Falicia as a troubled teenager living in an abusive household. She dreams of becoming a famous rapper, but instead finds herself pregnant at a young age and struggling to make ends meet. She meets Dino, an older man who promises to take care of her, and they quickly become involved in a tumultuous relationship. Dino is controlling and abusive, and he introduces Falicia to a life of crime, including prostitution and drug dealing.

Big Momma, Falicia's mother figure and owner of the strip club where Falicia works, tries to intervene and keep her from getting too deeply involved with Dino, but her efforts are in vain. Falicia becomes dependent on Dino and falls deeper into a life of crime, which ultimately leads to the murder of three men.

Throughout the film, we see the destructive nature of Falicia and Dino's relationship, as Dino manipulates and controls Falicia to get what he wants. As their relationship spirals out of control, Falicia begins to lose sight of who she is and what she wants, and becomes increasingly desensitized to the violence and crime she is involved in.

The performances in the film are outstanding, particularly Lil Mama's portrayal of Falicia. She captures the vulnerability and innocence of a young woman who falls victim to a toxic relationship, while also conveying the complexity and darkness of her character as she becomes more involved in crime. Lance Gross is equally impressive as Dino, portraying the character's charisma and manipulation with chilling authenticity. Tami Roman also delivers a standout performance as Big Momma, bringing depth and humanity to a character who could have easily been relegated to a stereotype.

When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story is a powerful and sobering exploration of the impact of domestic violence and the toll that it can take on a person's life. It is a cautionary tale about the dangers of falling into the wrong crowd and getting involved in criminal activities, and the importance of seeking help and support in escaping abusive relationships. The film is not only a showcase of remarkable acting talent, but also a reminder of the real life consequences of the choices we make.
