Probably for Ving Rhames fanboys only.

The plot: A drug dealer makes a deal with the devil to become the biggest, baddest dealer in the city.

Like everyone else, I watched this movie because of Esai Morales and Ving Rhames. Unfortunately, it's not really all that great of a movie. Still, I kind of liked it, despite it being an overt morality tale that spends much of time lecturing the viewer. It's got a certain degree of charm, I suppose. Or maybe I'm just being too forgiving, because I pity the careers of Rhames and Morales, who are actually pretty good actors. Anyway, it's a perfectly serviceable plot, and, despite some less than stellar directing, the end result is perfectly watchable. If you're looking for something other than a low budget, independent exploitation movie, I think you're going to be writing "worst movie ever!" threads in the comments.

I can't really say that this is the sort of movie that you remember, because about 30 minutes into it, I realized that I'd already seen it. That's kind of a bad sign. Still, I sat through it again, and I'm not entirely regretful. When you're a Ving Rhames fan, sometimes you have to sit through some truly awful movies, and this was not his worst.
