Indeed ...did see it again ...so forgotten ...
I am always interested in a Cuba Gooding Jr. movie, as his personality can carry even crappy plots. I feel bad for Cuba as the last few films he has made have been TV movie dramas at best.
This movie is no exception as the film work and writing are slow and dull. Though there were a few good scenes, such as the scene when Cuba visits the snake man.
I would advise against watching this movie, it is a drama/action film, but is missing the action and drama to keep you interested beyond the first 20-minutes.
Though I was able to watch the entire thing, I do feel it was overall a waste of time and I wish I had not seen this film.
It reminds me of a late night HBO rerun movie that you might watch if you have nothing else to do, and even then you probably won't walk away from the film even remembering that you saw it or anything interesting in it.
Though I love Cuba's acting, and I hope he hits a few more home runs in his career, this is not one of them.
Decent straight-to-rental flick starring Cuba Gooding JR as a highly regarded cop who has a disturbing past regarding some drug cartels wiping out his family that he can't get over. Then there's another story regarding a teenager looking after his little sister without any actual parents but works as a middle man for a wicked owner using her bar club as a front, and he wants out because he knows it's dangerous for his sister for him to be involved in. It is destined that both of them are going to meet but to what circumstances.
Although low budget, I thought this was involving solely because the main characters involved all have something in common and that is they had all lost somebody as a result of crime only to be reunited as a family is a clice but a positive outlook.
3 out of 4
This garbage film is even dirt poor compared to bad 80's Showtime late night films.
Yet another piece of crap clearly produced and directed by recent film school grads.
Slow almost unintelligible tough-drug-cop storyline made even worse by the most unprofessional sound mix in movie history.
It's like listening to some weird VHS dub.
To make sure I wasn't crazy, I looked this movie up on IMDB reviews and multiple people made the same comment.
