Vic Ferrante: Don't worry about Russel. We'll be nice to him now because it pays to be. But pretty soon I'll show him who carries the biggest dildo.

Stupid!
26 June 2002 | by (Bronx,NY) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I've seen. First of all Run DMC is very overrated and how you are going to make a movie about avenging a friends murder then turn it into a damn Krush Groove 2. There is corny performances and such and such. The acting is so bad it makes Sheila E. look like a veteran actress.
