When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
In South Los Angeles, while bringing his beloved son Junior back home from school, the paroled ex-convicted O2 promises his son that he would always come back to him and never leave him alone. However, his car is hijacked and Junior is kidnapped. Without any lead, O2 forces the street vendor Coco to help him to find where his car might have been sent for disassembling. Meanwhile, O2's addicted brother Lucky discovers that the cruel leader of the Outlaw Syndicate, the drug lord Meat, is keeping the boy arrested in a room and asking a ransom of US$ 100,000.00 that he believes O2 have from an old heist. O2 and Coco plot a scheme to put the pimp P-Money and Meat against each other and steal their money. Written by

OK, so i saw an advanced screening of this movie today and i have to say that it wasn't bad. I really enjoyed Tyrese's performance in the film; you could tell right off the bat that his character really cared for his son and would do anything to get him back. From the very beginning you could tell that this movie would have non-stop action and that started at the very beginning. Nothing about it was boring or drawn out, it got straight to the point.There were some things that i didn't like- like Meagan Good's performance. She played your average chick on the corner working for some guy who kicked her ass every time she didn't pay up; kinda like a pimp thing. Her big dream was to leave the city and to go to Mexico once she saved up some money. At first it seemed as if she was going to just spoil the movie just by shaking her ass the whole time in front of Tyrese just to make some dough, but when she found out what happened to his son they connected on a deeper level. She ended up helping throughout the whole movie with trying to get his son back. At times the movie did seem a little predictable because it was so fast paced, but there were some laughs that the whole audience shared. There is a lot of crime and down right cruel things being done in this movie, but over all the movie wasn't bad. The game's performance in this film was very believable; at times i flinched whenever he came on the screen because i was scared of what he might do.He doesn't have as much screen time as do Tyrese and Meagan good do, but he makes it worth while. To sum this all up, this movie was worth seeing, it was very entertaining, enjoyable, and funny.
