Storyline

When Jack, a small criminal who never amounted to something after systematical abuse by his father, is just out of jail after six months for his part in a theft of TV sets, he has nowhere else to crash then the place where his brother Moe, a penniless jazz musician, lives upstairs illegally. Their life suddenly gets a new perspective when they observe a robbed armored car is parked downstairs by three black hardened criminals. Jack only has eyes for the mountain of cash that can turn them instantly super-rich, and produces -to his startled brother's surprise- a hand gun, just in case; Moe on the other hand is reticent, till they notice a blonde girl which the hoods hold handcuffed, then decides rescuing her is worth the risk. After the three thugs have a row, Trent, who is unruly even by their standards, takes off but returns with a few scared white buddies of his. There are now too many guns and takers for the money for the plot to end without a heavy body count, while happy ends ... Written by KGF Vissers

I thought it was very good
14 September 2000 | by (new york, ny) – See all my reviews

No one ever said that crimes are fun and entertainment an this movie shows us just that. It keeps it real. Ice T plays a very very bad man and does in in a manner that is believable. The acting may not be beautiful and emotional but it it real. Real crime with a touch of fictional intertwining of characters who are also as real. It isn't about the acting, it's about the personal stories we can imagine, such as the hardened criminal trying to go straight seeking God and ending up using God as an excuse for his inability to stop killing innocents, it is about the derelict brother who always fails because he is unable to realize his ways are wrong and ends up preying on his good hearted sibling. It's about the pretty girl who is also brave and not easily intimidated. And there is more, the intelligent black kid who wastes his talent using it for the wrong reasons and the white wannabe gangsters who end up getting involved with more than they can handle and pay a high price. All these characters may appear boring to some (see other comment) but they really exist, what the film does is involve them in a tragicomic situation that may not be as fascinating as Pulp Fiction but is by far more real, if for no other reason than the actors not being Hollywood Stars.
