Leo's Rule #3- Don't watch this movie
19 April 2005 | by sbunc92-3See all my reviews

Have you ever walked in on a movie that had already started and you spent the next several moments trying to figure out the story? That is the feeling I had while watching this film. There is no setup, you don't know how any of these characters are connected. But in the end that is okay because after a while you don't care. The acting is terrible(except for Keith David who is wonderful) and the "script" is worse. I put script in quotation marks because half the movie is done in an improvisational style that just doesn't work. Technically, it is not much better. The majority of the scenes take place in dimly lit bars and streets. Don't bother with this, it is a waste of time.
