Not the one

I think because napoleon an ex member of outlaws a group who 2pac was part of, you would naturally assume the film was gangster. 2pac was the definition of gangster on and off camera, I think napoleon being in the movie was a way to trap customers, because he has no acting skills whatsoever. I don't think the story line was effective at all, and the sound effects were so poor it's almost comical. I am a bit disappointed in lady of rage cos I think she could have done better than to act in such a poor movie, also some of the actors like the the main characters are actors in teen comedy like sister sister. Don't rent this film with hopes of seeing gangster style action cos it is wanksta wack
