The film and setting's are very appealing to the eye. The use of color and lighting are brilliant. Taral Hicks is the reason I saw this film, but there is not much to see of her. I hope she continues acting in the future. The movie has some good scenes, but they don't match up. Nas always seems depressed and bored me. There was this Jamaican guy that half the time I could not understand what he was saying. The ending comes out of nowhere and is bad, even though it is trying to make a statement. 3/10 Bad to fair
