Inconsistent Focus.

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.

too much money can mess you up

I like the action and violence. I like the chase scene with the 65 Mustang; twice. I like the shooting. I like the punching and kicking and stabbing. This was the second suggestion in recommendation row under the Watch Next row. Amazon Prime knows what I like by now and I appreciate that.

This is a #$%ed up movie. What a piece of crap. Wesley Snipes and the guy who played in Hamburger Hill and the girl names Rain are good actors but this movie stank. Don't waste your time. What a train wreck.

Weird

Kept watching and trying to figure out how a serial killer and the activity with Snipes character has any connection at all. Seem like I'm watching two different movies into one. The movie is all over the place. Can't believe Snipes wasted his acting talent on this.

Very good to see Wesley & Mario hook back up. Hope they get a bigger budget next time. Had they had a bigger budget, hollywood would've have tried to give old Cybill Shepard an oscar.

Pretty decent movie. except..............

I'll be glad when directors and others stopped being mad at wesley and put him back in A-rated movies. he's too good of an actor to be playing in B-rated movies. other actors have done far worse and they are still getting top billing. bring wesley snipes back into what he does best.........action movies.
