Underrated classic!
15 February 2009 | by lndkramerSee all my reviews

To me Snipes has one of the best plots I've seen in a movie. The action never stops and you can never once guess what will happen next. There is always another twist. Dean Winters is a great evil villain and he really makes you hate him. Zoe Saldana is gorgeous as always and a very good actress. Seeing Nelly in it was interesting but he played a part anyone could of played so I'm pretty impartial to his performance. Not bad but not amazing. This is a movie that never gets talked about or anything, and I'm surprised. It's one of my favorites and I recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers, gangster movies, crime dramas, and even rap movies.
