For once, I agree 100% with the review of this movie. It is dead on. It was very poorly written although I was a bit intrigued by the twists and turns. The plot was a deja vu, very similar to some of the old school blaxploitation movies, updated with a modern look, and language. I did expect the soundtrack, which I didn't care for anyway in the extras on the DVD, to play more of a role, but I can't recall even hearing any music in the entire movie. Maybe because the plot was so weak I didn't notice the music.

I purchased the DVD for like $4. It was in a bin with thousands of other DVDs collecting dust. Seeing the beautiful Cynda Williams is worth the $4. Just put the movie on mute and you're good to go!
