3 January 2014 | by (Huber heights, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I caught this B flick on cable and the marketing does a good job of hyping up the film as an intriguing suspenseful murder mystery story. Unfortunately that was far from the case. Besides the poor acting out of a usually reliable group, the plot/storyline was essentially non- existent. David Banner as 'Daniel', one of the latest rappers turned 'attempting to act' was an interesting choice for the antagonist, he relished in playing a generally good guy turned bad (his boiling point scene was quite convincing!) but his efforts seemed wasted in this disappointing film. Possibly he may get another chance worthy of his efforts, this was not it. The premise was the most confounding, not enough effort was put into establishing the two main characters with this so-called 'bond' they was supposed to cherish. Boris Kodjoe's surprisingly weak performance as 'Nigel' never established his character as more than an acquaintance with David's. His blowing off of the crimes he committed lacked any sustenance, oh poor guy he has an addiction, he didn't give a what what, you never felt anything from him. A so-called 'best friend' like him would not be worth cherishing whatsoever! He was supposed to be some uber-talented athlete/businessman, um, really? You didn't see him do crap! He looked confused most of the time! Only time he was sincere was when he was losing to the convincing Bai Ling's character 'Black' who got all in his grill. She should have had more screen time, that's a creepy lady not to double cross! It was wack how they took her out, unconvincing! This film made obvious Boris' best acting is when he vibes off of decent peers. Sorry Boris, seems you was just in the flick to be eye-candy for the females, you was the weakest link! Billy Zane, talented, wasted, barely in the movie, Richard Roundtree, talented, wasted, barely in the movie. If they had built an arc around these characters, building up the conflict more adequately this would have been a more intriguing feature. Oh, and the actor who played the young version of Nigel? Unconvincing, didn't even favor his looks! Sex factor, sorry Kenya Moore, the hottie Brazilian actress Camila Alves stole the tantalizing scenes away! Like to see more of her! And Ms. Moore, as producer, please put your money on better scripts, directors, actors and maybe you'd shine better in the unforgiving movie industry. You're only as good as your last flick! Come see me if you need suggestions! :)
