30 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

back in the day i watched this movie twice it wasn't very good the acting was pretty poor they just seem to grunt at each other there is no real communication between the characters although its not what i would call i low budget movie its i don't know just seems kinda i mean what I'm saying in comparison to other gangsta movies this is bottom of the pile check out eastsidaz or hustle and flow instead one thing positive i will say about this movie is the ending which kinda made me think about my own life and the difference between right and wrong this is my 1st review of a movie hope it has made sense to people i will try harder next time lol peace
