This action film, directed by the Hughes brothers, depicts a heist of old bills, retired from circulation and destined by the government to be "money to burn." However, more broadly, it addresses the issues of Black Americans' involvement in the Vietnam War and their subsequent disillusionment with progress in social issues and civil rights back home in the United States, during the 1960's.

The way that Cowboy (Terrance Howard) Says the word "man" is very similar to how he uses it 10 years later in the film Hustle & Flow (2005) See more »
When Jose blows up the armored car with the ordinance, the back of the truck raises up in the air and falls back down on top of a heavy metal pole revealing that the pole is what caused the armored car to jump up into the air when it shot out of the bottom of the truck and not the explosion.

This was a great movie, and I think it was overlooked. It is one my favorites due to the unique storytelling and action. This movie is way better than 90% of the crap that comes out today. The acting is also superb, and I think it Chris Tucker's greatest performance. Even though the story has a lot of action, it's very believable, which is hard to do in Hollywood. For those who haven't seen this movie I suggest you go and rent it now, it's a modern day classic. Sit back and be prepared to watch a great moment in filmaking. It's definitely underrated. I think if it was promoted better it might have done better, especially since most war movies do well.
