Storyline

Rick and Melissa are a pair of young lovers hoping to get out of the slums for good and escape the poverty and crime their families and friends have gotten involved in. All this comes to an end when Rick feels he must rejoin his old gang to avenge the killing of his brother by a rival gang. In the course of getting even, Rick is arrested, leaving Melissa without anyone to protect her. She falls in with a crack dealer and quickly becomes addicted to the drug. When she gets sold to a drug kingpin by a minor dealer to pay off a debt, only Rick can save her. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Absolutely hideous!
6 November 2018 | by bronzesrvSee all my reviews

I watch this as a teen and again in my twenties, even then I was shocked the Jim Brown would stoop so low! But his history and abuse of women in real life is almost as bad as it is in this movie. Yes a lot of people saw this movie as humorous and funny... In reality it was none of those things. It was brutal towards women, yes know it's a movie but just stating my opinion, this is not something that any young person should see. But if you do see it, hopefully it'll teach you to say no to drugs for REAL! And stay away from people that deal drugs and especially human traffickers! I read one of the reviewer said she saw it at age 9, and it scared her for life. I certainly can see how she came to that conclusion.
