Mr. T *is* the Toughest Man in the World
9 August 2001 | by (Alameda, CA) – See all my reviews

Hokey tv-movie has Mr. T sticking up for some inner-city kids. His name might be "Bruise" but the action is fairly tepid. It's worth seeing just for the rap Monsieur T does over the opening credits. The video was available on Cabin Fever, in case you're trying to locate it.
