  1. Oddly enough, given his limited role, the movie seems to have been made around Nelly; when he's not onscreen, everything falls apart.

    Boasts spunk, imagination and a strong performance from Smallville's very talented Sam Jones III.
  3. 20
    Both a snore and utter tripe.
  4. Mr. Jones, who recently starred in "Zig-Zag," a similarly striving, overwrought picture, is a disciplined and likable performer, and he bravely perseveres in the face of narrative absurdity and rampant overacting.
  5. Highly watchable stuff (not to mention listenable, with a relentless but not overly obtrusive hip-hop soundtrack propelling the action).
  6. 38
    Too bad this movie is more tepid than the average Snipes potboiler and even rustier than his mindless Blade pictures.

    Unremarkable but competent in stylistic terms, with good use of Philadelphia locations, sharp casting and the requisite marketable hip-hop soundtrack adding up to a fun genre package.
  8. 25
    Enough to give you brain strain -- and the pay-off is negligible.
  9. 20
    A cockeyed shot all the way.

    Movie was terrible Nelly can't act to save his life. I mean how can you people give it a perfect 10 at all, because the star was a rapper?Movie was terrible Nelly can't act to save his life.
