Dennis Brown is a tragic anti-hero in the 1991 movie Straight Outta Brooklyn.
He was portrayed by Lawrence Gilliard Jr.
He is a young black man fed up with the hopelessness and poverty he's trapped in, in the Red Hook housing projects he lives in. So he devises the ultimate plan of escape: to rob a major crime boss named Luther. He plots the crime with his fellow pals, Larry Love and Kevin. Together they plot how the crime is going to go down.
He has a girlfriend in the movie, who he tries to not say anything about the crime until later on in the movie. When he tells her about the crime, she dumps him, one major blow to his hopefulness. They pull off the crime, however after the crime happens, Dennis receives a blow of betrayal from both his friends (but Larry Love even more).
The main tragedy is when he watches his mother die, and at the same time, his father is killed by Luther.
