A surprising urban hit
9 July 2003 | by (Edmonton, Alberta) – See all my reviews

Now this isn't one of the great thrillers of our time, but it is one of the best of the year. It's smart and fascinating, surprise-a-minute crime film that's held together with a great line of unknown talent. Even pop-rap superstar Nelly, (the main bill on the box art) did a wonderful job as a cocky and arrogant, yet undeniably talented rap artist.

In comparison with Black-urban action flicks, this is almost right up there with Hype Williams overlooked masterpiece, Belly. In fact, in comparison with most rap-movies (ex: anything by Master P, or Dame Dash) this is Oscar worthy (in comparison, of course).

From begining to end, this cause-and-effect thriller will hold you onto the edge of your seat and let go of you with a sharp blast to the frontal head.
