Tagline: His Legacy Must End... For His Son's Life To Begin.

This film is about James Allen aka Animal (Ving Rhames). A legend on the streets, known for killing. Apparently he gets framed by the police and is sent to prison. He meets a revolutionary by the name of Berwell (Jim Brown) who changes his outlook on the gangster ways. When Animal gets out of prison some 20 odd years later he tries to reconnect with his son Darius (Terrence Howard) ,who has unsurprisingly followed in Animals gangster footsteps, in the hope that he could walk away from it.

Watch it if you're into stories with morals & messages.

Its was okay but the plot got lost somewhere along the movie but found itself again towards the end.

I was very surprised at the power of this low budget film. Much better than some other crap that is produced. Though what really hurts this movie a lot is the editing. It is choppy and just plain doesn't make sense at some parts really hurting the flow and the rhythm and the feel of the movie. I do like the idea and the direction of the film though, and I am a huge Ving Rhames fan, and he is fantastic in this movie, and Terrence Howard does not disappoint here either. A great film, highly recommended.

rather predictable and unoriginal , however credit to the star actors for showing some patches of class. The most dissapointing thing is they made a sequel?*??**^% come on seriously how can rhames character come back to life after the ending in this movie, or mre to the point how does this film merit a sequel??
