Do not see this movie, it makes you dumber!!!
9 April 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My husband and I watched this movie hoping it was one of those video store gems, and we were sadly mistaken. It actually has turned us off this entire genre of film; whenever we see a similar type story depicted on a DVD cover, we walk right by, scared that we will waste more of our hard-earned bucks on a dud. It was badly acted and looked like it was filmed on someone's camcorder. There was an entire storyline that was not even completed (and I haven't seen any advertisement for sequels!!!) We like Ice T and gave it a chance. Unfortunately, now we don't even watch the Law and Order he's on, because we can't believe he did this movie!!! Do not rent this movie, it will be time you can never reclaim!
