The first words heard in the film, when the studio logo appears on the screen, "You are about to witness the strength of street knowledge," which is the opening line of the N.W.A. song "Straight Outta Compton." This is odd because that's a West Coast song and this film is set in New York City. See more »

This is a very stylish movie. All the elements seem to have combined to give it a very distinctive look and feel. The soundtrack is excellent and complements the story perfectly, almost like it is a part of the story. All the performances are great but special mention has to go to Wesley Snipes and the great Judd Nelson/Ice T double act. Okay the plot doesn't really tax your brain but if you are a fan of gangster movies or want a bit of mindless entertainment then you won't go wrong with this film.
