It has it's moments
17 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film did have potential to be a underground hit, but the direction was missing. Wasn't Ving Rhames best work, but at the same time he wasn't working with the most talented actors. I watched the film to see Nipsey Hussle's work, but was blow away by the plot. Great plot, just wasn't directed right. But the movie is not awful and is watchable a couple of times. it has well meaning message and if you are into prison flicks, this fulfill your needs. I give it a B-! The ending was kind of wack,and lazy. Hopefully it was because of a poor budget Like i said before, don't expect any Oscar winning performances, but it is a good flick to watch. Also, I think the score of the movie could have been better when you have two great rappers in Nipsey Hussle and Gillie the Kid!
