The narration and opening scene were initially awkward. Then comes Sol Rosenbaum in his kangol. Wow. Wait til you see him shoot a gun. It became a different movie with the comedy scenes it, actually entertaining, but the serious moments were awkwardly acted and scripted. The biggest turn-off was all the racist stereotypes used for comedy and PSAing.
Eventually we get introduced to an array of whacky characters. It's a 3-star cast with a story that goes off the rails. Cybil Shepherd is channeling Kathleen Turner as "Serial Mom" and an Oedipal-type relationship with character Chang. Snipes and Peebles are hearkening back to New Jack City and Sugar Hill, which is entertaining when it's comical but not so much when it's serious.
