This was Tupac Shakur's last film, and the first one given full theatrical release after his death on 13 September 1996. His other film, Bullet (1996) made prior to this one only received a limited theatrical run late in 1996 before being released on home video, just before this film was released theatrically in August 1997.

Much better movie than I expected. Jim Belushi and Tupac Shakur have a good chemistry as 2 crooked, conflicted cops. Tupac Shakur actually played a very good character as the increasingly troubled cop. He was willing to bend some rules, and put some money in his pocket, but things have now gone entirely too far for him. Jim Belushi plays a morally dumb cop who continues to make the situation worse, and continues to believe he can probably manipulate his way out of anything.
Dennis Quaid, James Earl Jones and Lela Rochon were all excellent.
I didn't expect too much from this, but I was drawn into a well-done, well-acted movie.
