This movie was ok. It was nothing great, but it was watchable. If you have anything better to do, don't watch this, but if you're absolutely bored, watch it. I thought AMBUSHED was 'entertaining' - at times it was suspenseful and it had some good action scenes, but in parts it was also unintentionally funny - ex. When the KKK is chasing the black policeman, they go through the sewer, and the KKK guy tells his comrade to go first - "Why not you?" "I'm wearing a suit." Maybe the filmmakers were trying to add some humor to this movie. Whatever it was, I thought it was funny and quite out of place if this movie hoped to be serious and not absurd.
