It's been three years since Emery Simms was wrongfully imprisoned for a murder he didn't commit. Emery's best friend Brandon (Blakemore) and ex-wife Connie (Fox) are now married, running a successful restaurant and nightclub in Atlanta. Their lives change dramatically, however, when Simms is killed in prison and new evidence emerges as to Brandon's role in the framing of his friend. When Emery's estranged brother Donovan (White) enters the picture, he becomes determined to unearth the explosive truth behind his brother's downfall. New motives, deceptions and lies are revealed, but the closer Donovan gets, the deeper he'll get himself into trouble and the possibility of lying in a grave, right next to his brother. Written by

4-get the first "MOTIVE"
1 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the first "MOTIVE" movie awhile ago and don't remember a darn thing, but it was good. Good-looking well dressed well heeled black people plotting on each other. Some pretty-boy, thought he was getting away with something and ended up getting set-up and caught-up. But thats all I remember So getting beating over the head every other scene with them back logging to the first movie got pretty irritating. I mean there were no "Zombies" or "Samuria Swords" or "Spank-Bank worthy love scenes" so I couldn't see watching it again just to know what was going in the second movie. I think the second one would have been better had they feathered it in on the premise of the brother trying to solve his brothers murder. And the suspects just skyfing on each other trying to stay out of trouble. That being said, Micheal White who always plays tragic doomed characters (The Shield / Brick) turned in a good performance as always. William L. JOHNSON made up for his irritatingly over the top performance in the "PLAYERZ COURT".
