A young man is torn by divided loyalty in this hard-edged urban drama. Reggie (Ja Rule) was raised by his father (Giancarlo Esposito) after a violent incident in the neighborhood where he lived with his mother (Pam Grier). While Reggie has been encouraged to take up a life of crime by his older friend and street mentor J-Bone (Ving Rhames), his father thinks Reggie has a good head for business and urges him to use his smarts rather than his gun. When Reggie's father is murdered, J-Bone takes the young man under his wing, but as a consequence of their friendship, Reggie is linked to the killing of a local preacher -- whose daughter (Tatyana Ali) is Reggie's girlfriend. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

this movie was huh!@#$ and further more what the!@#$%^&&*...and it was also*&^%$...dont waste your rental it comes on B.E.T. all the time...if you have 110 minutes to waste then this is the movie for you....
I guess with casting Ja Rule as the lead, you can't really expect more of this movie. Ving Rhames usually does well playing these type-cast roles but I also wasn't too pleased with his performance either. The story line starts out good, diminishes halfway through, then ties together a good part of the plot in the end. The overall direction, acting, and plot of the movie was extremely disappointing.
