Whew, what a waste. I like Ving Rhames but this movie was absolutely horrible.

Ja Rule at his best!!!

"I just finished watching Back in the Day. I thouroughly enjoyed this movie. I don't care what is said about Ja Rule, but this guy has a natural talent. You can't fake natural talent. I think he's a great addition to films! Ving Rhames did his thing too. What did you expect? He's a veteran! I give much props to each and everyone who had anything to do with this movie...they did a wonderful job!!! EXCELLENT!!!"

"by Tynesha Mells

In this drama, Ja Rule, who stars as Reggie, struggles with the loss of his father. His old friend J-Bone, who is a cold-blooded thug recently released from prison, helps Reggie find who murdered his father. A week after his dad died, a preacher, Reverend Packer, came up dead. Reggie was suppose to be the one to kill him, but did he? Did Reggie kill Reverend Packer or was it some type of a setup?

Back in the Day also has a couple of romantic scenes. See, Reggie falls in love with the preacher's daughter and J-Bone doesn't approve of his love friend. As J-Bone tries to destroy what they have, Reggie learns that love is about forgiveness. But what J-bone is doing, does it work? Do Reggie and his girlfriend break up, or does it bring them closer together?

I like this movie because it leaves you wondering what's going to happen next and did this or that happen. I like movies with suspense! It kind of makes you want to be in the movie so that you could detect things. I also like this movie because everything falls in place, if you really pay attention to it!"

"Just finished watching Back in the Day and I honestly have nothing but good things to say about the movie. While I'm sure it will come as no surprise that Ving did his thing what was very surprising is how well Ja performed. James Hunter,the director, needs to be given credit not only for a well written and shot movie but also for coaching that performance out of Ja. This is one for the collection, not to be missed."
