"This movie was terrible. Im shocked because i usually like ghetto/gangsta movies, but this was just 2 much. For yall trying to see this for the rappers they dont appear until the movie is close to over. i mean what is this (BLEEP). and to think this is based on a story written by a famous black novelist. its a good thing i got the rent this movie free. you dont have to take my word, go and see you might think differently,but dont be shocked if u wind up regreting this. i still do. i definelty never wanna see this movie again. not even on T.V. im out. peace!"
One of the worst movies ever made!!!

"I love the "urban gangsta" movies. I can watch them all day. This movie was BS. It deserves no stars. The dialogue is terrible, the plot makes no sense... this is really bad. There are times when the dialogue is said twice and you can tell it should have been edited. At one part a girl is talking about someone who got arrested earlier and is in jail. Then the guy who's supposed to be in jail is at the club with them and buys them champagne... what's up with that? Stuff like this happens the whole 100 minutes. Its like they filmed a whole bunch of scenes at a couple of different times and somebody tried to edit it and add in more scenes and come up with something that made some kind of sense. I could act better than this when I was 5. This was sad. This movie took the genre back 40 years."
NOT BAD, BUT ALSO NOT GREAT

"THE MOVIE IS ABOUT TWO GANGSTAS WHO GET TIRED OF THEIR MURDERS GOING UNRECOGNIZED. BUT WHEN THEY MURDER TWO DOPE FIENDS, THEY MAKE THE FRONT PAGES OF SEVERAL NEWSPAPERS, THEN THEY START DOING MURDERS FOR A MAN NAMED KENYATTA [CLIFTON POWELL], BUT AS THE NUMBER OF MURDERS GROW, THE COPS ARE GETTING CLOSER TO BRINGING THESE THUGS DOWN. NOT MUCH, BUT AT TIMES, IT IS OKAY. YOU GOTTA ADMIT ONE THING, CLIFTON POWELL LOOKS SILLY IN DREADS. THE MOVIE HAS CAMEOS FROM A HOST OF RAPPERS; JA RULE, CHARLI BALTIMORE, CORMEGA, SNOOP DOGG, ANGIE MARTINEZ, AND ICE-T. OF INTEREST ONLY FOR TYRIN TURNER [WHO STARRED IN THE FAMED ''MENACE II SOCIETY''] AND CLIFTON POWELL. OTHERWISE, IT'S JUST YOUR AVERAGE DIRECT TO VIDEO GANGSTA MOVIE."

"Like many of you when I saw the actors listed for this movie I thought it would be pretty good but boy was I wrong. Horrible acting, horrible directing. Very low budget, my first college production type movie. Everyone involved should have stopped and said we could do better. Do not waste your money nor your time, mark my words it is horrible. As said on the old In Living Color show "Hated it"."
