A promising start, but bad plot/acting make this a movie to avoid
The movie opens with a nice shoot-out scene, unfortunately the movie goes downhill from that point on.
The following 87 minutes of the movie feature some of the worst acting I've seen in a long time. And it's not just the main character, played by Busta Rhymes, it's almost everyone in the entire movie (how is this possible?). With action movies I don't think an original plot is a necessity, although its preferable, but the dialogue/acting is pretty bad, so bad actually, I could hardly put myself up to watch the entire piece.
To sum it up: the action-scenes are OK I guess, not very good but entertaining. However the acting is pretty bad (pretty = really) and the plot is non-existent. If you can't help yourself, rent it, if you're smart, you'll spend the 90 minutes you need to watch this movie doing something more useful and fun, like re-arranging your sock drawer.
My opinion: 3/10 (and I'm being lenient)
