Movie Info

A pair of corrupt police officers discover the hard way that crime really doesn't pay in this action drama. Divinci (James Belushi) and Rodriguez (Tupac Shakur) are two New York undercover cops with serious money problems: Rodriguez owes a huge gambling debt, while Divinci wants to retire to Hawaii but lacks the cash. To stretch their paychecks, the partners pose as drug dealers, using narcotics confiscated as evidence; they sell the dope, and after receiving payment, they kill the buyers in

Writer-director Jim Kouf crams the screen with enough incident, coincidence and characters to keep you watching.

I won't pretend to know anything about Shakur's music, but his death robbed filmgoers of an actor who only began to show his talent.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

An ambitious but instantly generic urban crime drama that conjures up the usual assortment of cliched' streetwise grittiness

Tupac was a very promising actor -- it's a shame this was the kind of film he usually wound up in.

There are several clever twists in the story, though Kouf never quite manages to make much of it seem credible.

Jim Kouf has managed to create a low-budget cop story that not only features a sterling cast, but also manages to entertain for two hours straight.

Audience Reviews for Gang Related

Believe it or not but this is actually a decent cop thriller starring Shakur and Belushi! two dirty cops trying to lie their way out of killing an undercover detective by framing a homeless man.

The premise is fine yet unoriginal but its handled well, both Belushi and Shakur play their roles well and you do get immersed in the tension as they get deeper in doo doo. You know what's gonna happen to be honest but its a fun ride watching it unfold.

Dennis Quaid plays the homeless man but I dunno why really, his role isn't really a big deal despite it being an important part of the story and Quaid seems to be sleep walking his way through it, I think this must have been his sparse acting period.

Surprisingly good thriller, Belushi shows he can actually play it straight from time to time plus Lela Rochon is scorchingly hot :)

Fairly dated yet pretty watchable. I think the main attraction for this film at the time was Tupac, but for me James Bellushi was the one that drove the film here.
