Fire Fizzles After a While, but Still Very Entertaining
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This movie is entertaining but not for the usual way a film is good. This film has the power to hook you in. For some reason you want to sit until the end even though the plot is cliched, mixed up and extremely corny. There are too many unanswered questions leaving the viewer to wonder if they missed something when it was the film's direction that missed everything. The plot had more holes in it than swiss cheese. The acting was pretty good ( compared to other BET films ). I was also glad to see that BET is shoveling more money for film production. This was not as cheap looking as many BET films though the set looked like a live soap opera. There were not enough character explanations. All and all this was not a great film but for some reason it hooks you in. The actors did good jobs and I was satisfied with the ending. Still there were major plot problems that outweighed the positive outcome of the film. Three stars was all I could muster. I will recommend this to people who love BET films because it is one of the better ones. But to someone looking for a REAL mystery you might want to skip this altogether. This plot has been done for a thousand other movies and most of them did it much better."
HOT! MEL JACKSON!

"Great Thriller! Full of suspense and a few surprises. Great cast too! I even fell in love with the supporting actors! An ideal movie to watch with your significant other. I saw it first on BET and enjoyed it thoroughly! This is definitely a must see."
Waste of time!

"Just d*mn... I was so disappointed. It was obvious the actors weren't feeling the roles. It was so amateurish!"

"Mel Jackson really has a nack for playing guys that you love to hate!(smile) His performance is really the only reason to tune into this weak suspense thriller. Vanessa Williams who has really come a long way in her acting skills, gives a rather wooden perfomance this time out. Tangi Miller's performance seems abit more natural and she and Mel are 'hot' on screen together! Hopefully BET will utilize the talents of these two performers for future movie projects. This movie deals with stolen artifacts, betrayal and lots of cash. I would recommend seeing some of the other BET movies before this one, but this is a decent entry to the series. That is unless you are a Mel Jackson fan, then you might want to place this one higher up on your list."
