A Rediculaclly good movie
16 December 2004 | by Kevin_SouiceSee all my reviews

People if you know me, I love everything Jamaican, But no I do not like this just because of that reason, It was a great movie! I mean sure, the quality sucked I mean people, The quality was like some person just taped their own home video, but it was still really good. I liked Beenie Man, but for some really odd reason, I kept thinking that he was going to get killed some time.

The ending was Rediculaclly GGREAT! (not to rip on tony the tiger) The Dude escaped from Jamaica, and went back to the united states (it may be backwards, either back to the U.S, or Jamaica don't remember).

I don't care what other people say about this movie. It's the best movie but like I said there is REAL BAD QUALITY TO THIS MOVIE!!!
