    bomb azz movie 1 of my favorites i love the plot and the old school flashbacks in this movie fantastic!!

    This was a good little flashback movie, and though it was enjoyable, I found a lot of the scenes a bit long: its style is too glossy to feel truly authentic even though it sometimes seems realistic, and as such, the film drags a bit. Richard T. Jones steals the show, though, and Omar Epps turns in a strong performance: all in all, a decent flick, definitely worth watching.

    Only half as good as I'd hoped. The two stars are for the flashbacks. The present-time material needs work.
