Jim Belushi played Frank Sinatra's "Fly me to the moon" for Tupac as a song to possibly sample for the soundtrack. Tupac loved the song so much that he felt the song should remain untouched and didnt sample it. See more »

Tupac Shakur's earlier posthumous film from 1997, Gridlock'd, still had a 1996 copyright date in the credits. However, this film lists its year of production in the credits as being 1997, despite many viewers already knowing beforehand that Tupac Shakur was not alive in 1997. See more »

A solid noir
This is a solid noir movie with outstanding performances from Jim Belushi and Tupac Shakur, but the thing I've appreciated most is the history , and the ending too is so different from the average of this kind of movies. Belushi is so convincing, he is nearly perfect in his part ( the corrupted cop ) and there is Gary Cole too in a little part. But, again, the best of this movie is the history, that evolves so surprising and unexpected.
