Samuel L. Jackson
A cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. He must find a way to save both himself and one last victim.
4 Harlem teens, Q, Bishop, Raheem and Steel, are out skipping school one day when they find out an old friend was killed in a shootout at a bar. After this, Bishop tells his friends that they have no respect, or juice. To get some, they rob a corner grocery store, but the lunatic Bishop intentionally shoots the clerk for no apparent reason. They run into an alley where Raheem tells Bishop to give him the gun, they fight, and Raheem gets shot. Only the other 3 know what happened, and Bishop wants to get rid of them too. Written by
After the scene in which Q, Bishop, Steele and Raheem had the altercation with Radames and his crew, they ran around the corner and Bishop lit up a cigarette and the very next shot, he has no cigarette and his hands are in his pockets. Then he takes a drag off Raheem's cigarette. See more »

Its hard to belive that Omar Epps was only about 18 while shooting this film & 2pac was only around 20, anyways this movie basically is a different style of african american movies, not showing that everyone in the hood deals with guns, but 2pacs personality had an amazing change in this movie, it was so realistic & his acting is just great. This is Omar Epps & 2pacs debut in movies & both acted very natural. This movie is a lot more convincing & realistic than Higher Learning, ive actually noticed that 2pac is an excellent most of his movies r heaps good e.g. Above the rim, gridlock'd & Gang Related. Anyways i was surprised at how good this film was. I rate this movie 8.5 / 10
