I watched this movie because it was included in a four pack that I bought at Walmart for five dollars. I had been curious about this movie for quite some time and I remember seeing TV spots for it back in early 1998 and wondered what the movie was all about.
I get the premise of a guy getting out of jail and wanting to go straight but couldn't because some things wouldn't let him. However, there were so many twists and turns that I was not sure who really was the main antagonist and when you do, it turns out to be a really minor character and while I get the motive and reasons (Sort of) about the true villain, it just doesn't relate to the main plot.
The only thing that saved this movie was seeing Cynda Williams naked and the soundtrack was also better than the film. This movie sucked and I really wonder how this made it to theaters. As much as I respect Bokeem Woodbine as an actor, I don't really think he is cut out for lead roles and this movie shows.
