a pretty decent flick... a very interesting plot and wild turns, incredible situations and some pretty good acting by ja rule at the end. unfortunately, rhames was unimpressive in this film. his performance came off very forced... he was just laying it on too thick (a problem which persists throughout the first half of the film, thanks to all cast members really, but it smooths out and gets better and more believable towards the end). I suppose it's worth a watch if youre a ja rule fan, but Ving let me down on this one. ps- ja rule's albums going platinum don't really have anything to do with his acting... nor with him being a talented musician (argumentum ad populum).
