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.

Actor Arnold Vosloo, of THE MUMMY fame, filmed many scenes as one of the detectives after Gibson and all his scenes and his story-line were deleted. The deleted scenes can be seen in it's entirety on the DVD deleted scenes menu. See more »
When Meat pulls the trigger and attempt so shoot 02, his gun clicks, it was empty. O2 says "seven shots". The problem is when you discharge a semi-auto on the last round, it does not re-cock, but remains "open", it would be obvious to even those who know nothing about guns that it was out of rounds.

This isn't a great movie but it's good, fun, mindless entertainment.
I'm a huge fan of "Gridlock'd" and went into this film expecting a clever take on the action genre from Vondie Curtis Hall. What I got was an action-packed movie that borrowed from many films before it; its saving grace is its urban twist, the tongue in cheek humor (Kimora Lee's cameo is priceless) and its stars, Tyrese Gibson, Meagan Good and Larenz Tate. If you're fans of either actor, you'll allow yourself to believe the unbelievable moments--and there are many of them.
The action is non-stop, the hip hop soundtrack delivers in all the right places and you could plant a pretty garden in the plot holes but you'll certainly get your money's worth with the gunfights, beautiful people and adrenaline racing chase scenes--and in the end, isn't that what action films are all about?
