Storyline

Jeff Cole is a recent graduate of the Cincinnati police academy who dreams of working undercover. His wish is granted and through success is given the task of taking down state-wide crack dealer Dwayne Gittens aka "God". Gittens is known as a family man and a man of the people, contributing to his community and helping those in need. However, there is another side to him, a ruthless leader of a criminal empire who will torture or kill anyone without question. Over time, Cole develops a close friendship with Gittens. Cole's superiors worry that the line between cop and bad guy is getting blurred and that both identities are becoming one. Cole's loyalties are put to the ultimate test just as there is enough evidence to take Gittens down for good. Written by Dalton M

GREAT MOVIE!!!
12 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie is excellent. It has everything; lovable characters, crude humor, brief nudity, popular actors, well-written story, a ruthless but nice crimelord who calls himself "GOD". Omar Epps plays Cole, an undercover cop who goes "in too deep" to stop God. At first he suspects he's a cop but after certain encounters with God's enimes; Cole proves himself. He takes it to far sometimes, then his boss stops him from undercover work but he quickly put back in. There nasty but funny scenes n this movie such as: God cutting off the tongue of 1 of his enimes, then another, he shoves a pool stick in his butt. Defenitely a "must-see" film. Although the ending is not expected but nonetheless go see it!
