First off, Busta Rhymes and Xzibit are 2 of my most favorite rappers ever. When I saw both were in a movie together, i flipped. This movie is just plain bad. The city of "Alabaster" only about 500 or so people living in it. But in the scenes when Pope (Busta) is driving you can clearly see it a lot larger than its supposed to be. I even saw skyscrapers in one shot. Sheriff Wallace was totally miss-cast, I wasn't even convinced that he was a sheriff. This movie also has some of the worst lines I have ever heard. The pace of the movie is quick at first, but then begins to drag early on. Another thing that was missing was accents, its in Alabama. I live in Georgia, I know not everyone has a southern draw, but some of the locals of "Alabaster" had northern accents. I could go on, but it just makes me sadder. Anyway just rent it first, then if you like it buy it. But I just wasn't feeling it. Peace.
