I got a screener copy of this movie and it's very good. The acting is solid, with a few fresh new stars in the making. The plot is interesting, and realistic. The pace keeps the movie going, and kept me from getting bored. The writing manages to be both dramatic and witty. The guest starring rappers actually turned out better than I expected. The only downside I found was an excessive use of profanity. It could have benefited from just a little less in some instances. The cast is primarily male, and mostly newcomers and music industry celebs. Considering this is a Cop vs. Gangster movie that's understandable. The addition of a female gangster or cop would have made it more interesting, but it doesn't detract from it's current status. I think it could have very well have been a TV Show on a cable network, providing the opportunity to delve further into the lives and motives of the characters. All in all it was worth the time spent watching it, even though it was shorter than an average movie. I definitely recommend that people check this movie out when they have a chance, especially if you're bored with the Hollywood hotshots and big name blockbuster action flicks that spend more money on big explosion effects than on hiring actors or writers with actual talent. It was a breathe of fresh air, despite the gritty city feel. I predict that we haven't seen the last of DJ Naylor, the star of the movie, or the director, Anghus Houvouras. I know that I, for one, am anticipating seeing both again as they have quite a bit of talent.
