A movie about racial problems blended with good action.
This movie is generally okay but, it's not a movie I would call fantastic. The movie generally has a good plot and a bit of adequate directing. But however, the movie has a very poor setting which makes it look like a typical TV movie. On the other hand, the movie lets us see the effects of racism and corruption in our American society incorporated into a lot of thrilling action. It's a movie worth viewing when you are bored but, it's not a movie I would recommend to top action movie lovers.
