  1. 40
    A rapper doesn't make the story fresh.
  2. Normally, I'd recommend a movie like this only to diehard fans. But even they may want to wait until it hits cable.
  3. 38
    Features less than 10 minutes of music in its mercifully brief 83-minute running time.
  4. Glib, sense-numbing action fantasy.
  5. 20
    The staging and performances are awkward, the frequent shoot-outs a snore.
  6. 10
    This awkward fable of ghetto redemption mixes painfully earnest message-delivery with occasional scenes of brutal violence.
  7. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    10
    Flawed at its very core.
