Miles Montego (Ja Rule) has it all - cars, boats, good looks, mansion, money, women, but more importantly, he has a past. Miles is a retired high level drug trafficker who is now completely legitimate. Even though Miles has turned over a new leaf, the DEA can't seem to let him out of their sights. Miles' only downfall is that he is extremely loyal to his circle of friends and former colleagues who are not retired from the lucrative business. Struggling to keep on the right side of the law, Miles meets the one girl of his dreams but she's not the usual type of girl that he's used to dating. Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon) is a church girl in every sense of the word. They are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other. God continues to chip away at Miles through struggles from his past, having to live up to his reputation, feelings of unworthiness, the death of his mother, federal charges, his friends being indicted, the strain on his relationship with Vanessa, ...Written by
Strictly for God-fearing church-going super-religious people!
Gangster meets a church-girl and goes good didn't sound too shabby for a movie, and Ja Rule's name is a sure-shot to boost up the street-cred but... And I do mean but... This is one of the preachiest movies I have ever seen in my whole life... Granted, it's a Gospel movie company that did it BUT does that mean that they have to refer to God or the bible in 75% of all the scenes in the movie? They even gave God a executive producer spot for the movie lol... And there are no gangsterish scenes to be talked about either, Ja Rule is out of the gangster-life already when the movie starts so it's not as much of a "coming of age"-story as I expected either... Acting-wise Ja Rule is actually pretty good, but the script and dialogue is sometimes not even bearable due the writers trying to constantly push their Gospel-agenda down the viewers throats... If however you are super-religious and go to church every Sunday (like everyone should do according to the movie) then yeah you might like it...
