Sub-par even by run of the mill underground hood flick standards
27 December 2016 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

I've seen a lot of hood movies in my lifetime, don't know the exact number but I would guess at at least 200 of them. So I've build up a high tolerance level from flaws that these sort of no budget hood flicks usually come with, but even still with low expectations I was still let down.

Everything is just so amateurishly made, everything from the awful choices of filming angles to the sound to yeah even the acting, despite having a couple of famous names in the film (most of which aren't in it very much though mind you).

It only get slightly okay when Sticky Fingaz is in a scene because he is a charismatic actor by nature so even though his acting is far from his best in this one (more like the other way around to be honest) he still manages to control the scenes he's in and give it a little more flare than it would have had without him.

A lot of the other cast members have been good in other stuff but for some reason they are not very good at all here, I blame poor direction but the writing doesn't help.

And it's not even bad to the point it's funny bad either.

Overall rating a strong 3 or a weak 4, your pick.

'JUST ANOTHER DAY (2009)' also with Wood Harris (in a bigger role) wasn't amazing but it's great in comparisons with this so if Wood is the reason you want to watch this watch that instead. Or I mean the series 'THE WIRE' of course which is one of the best series of all time.

I don't know what the heck happened to Wood Harris career, seemed like he was gonna go places with him being brilliant in REMEMBER THE TITANS, PAID IN FULL and THE WIRE but ended up in the 1 dollar bin with movies like this.
