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

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.

I took this movie home the other day not really expecting to see much of a movie but I was like what the hell, I'll give it a try and was pleased.
This movie didn't have the most original plot. It was just a father trying to get his kidnapped son back. Tyrese Gibson played the father who would very much rather forget his past and jail time so he set a good example for his kid. I thought Gibson did a very good job as he teamed up with the very attractive actress Meagan Good. Also in the movie was Larenz Tate. Tate did not impress me. It seemed like he just re-enacted his role in Crash.
Your not going to see a masterpiece after watching this film. Your not going to get blown away by the acting even though it was above average. They're some hard-nosed scenes such as when I guy gets his armed chopped off for not paying back the money. But the movie seemed to have heart and I believe it was directed very well. Such scene is when Gibson's character is running than switches to first person as the director, Vondie Curtis-Hall, has the camera shaking constantly to give it a more dramatic feel.
The relationship between Good and Gibson's character grew way to fast but still was par. There are some moments that are far fetched but the movie was still very entertaining and intense and I believe it gets a 7.5 rating (rounded to a 8).
Acting 7, editing 6, directing 8, plot 6.
