Storyline

Three notorious gangsters wage a bloody battle for supremacy in the City of Brotherly Love. Beans, the imprisoned kingpin and hometown drug lord, struggles to keep his renegade ABM Crime Syndicate on the map. He is driven and consumed by a festering hatred for his longtime rival. Dame, the Harlem-born hustler, is also the top dog in town. His Umbrella network is unmatched in cash-flow and manpower. With a long list of enemies seeking territory and revenge, the self-proclaimed "cakeaholic" is forced into a vicious war. Loco, the flashy Miami playboy, is about to be released from prison. His deep pockets and stellar reputation prove to be valuable tools in Loco's plot to take over the streets of Philly. But he must first overcome the ghosts from a turbulent past. Alliances are formed and shattered, and lifelong friendships are put to the test as the various crews deal and duel to the death. Somewhere, buried deep within the ranks of one of these gangs, a ruthless criminal mastermind is ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Better Than The First
24 October 2007 | by JohnnycitystarSee all my reviews

Maybe Not a classic but this film is decent.A big step up from the first one better characters,better acting and better funnier scenes but this movie has too many problems.It's Very long,the pacing is strecth out,and the plot just like the first is very confusing but in the end it's not bad for a gangster film.

The film leaves off where Beans The main character from the first film has been sent to jail for lots of reasons and crimes.now he is serving 15 to 30 years in jail.in jail he meets a couple of new characters Free and "El pollo loco" who help him to get out of jail if he decides to join together to become the number one guys in Philly.but the only way is stopping them is Beans' rival Dame who still has a score to settle with Beans and doesn't like the fact that he isn't given a shot to become number one in Philly.so both crews from Beans and Dame go at each by killing each others robbing each other and etc.when Beans comes out of jail he's mad that his crew has been slacking and making him look bad while out of jail him and Dame confront each other and they find out that they were getting played by "El Pollo Loco" in the end Beans and Dame team up to get back at "El Pollo Loco" but Loco finds out that his close friend betrays him just to get money and he sets up the whole thing about Beans and Dame Loco finds out and Kills him in the end and Beans and Dame have ended there beef...For Now.

Now the plot at first is straight forward but just gets lost and confusing at times With too many flashback scenes that have you lost but if you watch it a couple of times you may understand it.The pacing is long and drags.but the reason why is that this movie is a little long so maybe that's the reason.

as for Character development it has stepped up since the first film.You know a lot more about Beans and Dame's characters how they started,how they became drug dealers the thing about Beans and Dame is both are drug dealers but have different personalities Beans' is rough,tough and does it the dirty way.While Dame does it professionally and clean without getting his hands dirty it sucks that this development wasn't shown in the first.

As for the acting it's a mixed bag.there are no stand-out or memorable performances but it's decent.For Beanie Sigel he has step his acting game a little bit and show inspiration and that thugness that makes his role believable.same goes for Damon Dash as he fits in his role and plays his role so smoothly and is having fun with his role.N.O.R.E. does a good job playing the comical "EL Polo Loco" as his character brings the humor into the film and gives an a good performance.Freeway is given yet a Dean-pan role so I can't say much about his performance Omillio Sparks gives the same performance that he gave in the first and isn't as funny as he was in the first film just annoying.as for the rest of the actor the all do a so-so job so good,some bad.

Overall it's a decent movie go watch it if you haven't seen it.
