Audience Member better than i was expecting Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member better than i was expecting Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member ja rule is soo fine in this movie Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member a pretty decent flick... a very interesting plot and wild turns, incredible situations and some pretty good acting by ja rule at the end. unfortunately, rhames was unimpressive in this film. his performance came off very forced... he was just laying it on too thick (a problem which persists throughout the first half of the film, thanks to all cast members really, but it smooths out and gets better and more believable towards the end). I suppose it's worth a watch if youre a ja rule fan, but Ving let me down on this one. ps- ja rule's albums going platinum don't really have anything to do with his acting... nor with him being a talented musician (argumentum ad populum). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic Film^^!! Ving Rhames was so excellent actor...Goes to hes fathers house,Hes dad is drunk,Shoots hes father a few times,Then starts draging him out of the house down and up star still alive then start setting him on fire.....A Must watch film.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a bad movie about living the ghetto life. Drugs, crimes, ext. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
