Chemistry between Roth and Shakur makes this a worth watching movie.
17 December 2006 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Extraordinary chemistry between Tim Roth and Tupac Shakur is the best feature about this movie.

The situations are really interesting with a bit of black humor and some action going on. Tupac Shakur, against all criticism, delivers a solid, believable, likable performance. Tim Roth is amazing and delivers a badass performance as the "cool" junkie with a bad attitude.

I really dig how they care for each other and how they help each other whenever there's trouble. The drug sub-plot is also interesting and very good carried on.

Years ago I mentioned on another review that this was the best on-screen duo of 1997. I still think the same.
