Storyline

When a man (Taz), sells his soul to the devil to become the cities biggest drug boss, he obtains all the money, women and power the game has to offer. But when the devil comes to collect, in a clever and mischievous plan that only Beelzebub's mind could dredge up, Taz is forced to try to outwit the most evil force known to God and man. Satan increases the stakes by bringing forth a demon in the image of Taz's late father. Written by Ryan Combs

When Taz decides to take the deal the Devil offers, he meets him at the cemetery as told. Upon arrival, he is carrying a device to pry and slide the marble top off the plot. He was only told to meet there, never that he would be asked to bring a device to open and take the remains of his father. See more »

King of fools
17 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Taz (Simon Rex),an adopted son of a well-known drug dealer who's staying in the family business, makes a deal with the devil, he enjoys the good life until it comes time to pay his due that is.

I sincerely don't know which was worse, the atrociously clichéd dialog or the corny overblown way said dialog was delivered. The only reason i even gave it a chance, the usual greatness of Ving Rhames, couldn't save this turkey. King of the avenue? This film would be lucky to be the jester of some worthless side street.

Eye Candy: 2 extras briefly get topless and one ass

My Grade: D
