When he is betrayed and brutally murdered by a corrupt cop, Bones' elegant brownstone becomes his tomb, Twenty-two years later, the neighborhood has become a ghetto, and his home has turned into a Gothic ruin.

User Reviews

* * out of 4.
4 June 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

Gangster (Snoop Dogg) who was trying to clean up the streets is killed by his friends back in the 70's. He comes back to life after 20 years to seek revenge on those responsible for his death. Atmospheric thriller with good visuals and a commanding performance by Snoop Dogg, but it is uninvolving, poorly paced, and comes off as a Nightmare on Elm Street clone. Pam Grier is wasted in a supporting role.

Rated R; Sexual Situations, Profanity, Drug Use, and Graphic Violence.
