Where do I begin? For one the summary for this movie is a lie, DMX is not a drug dealer called the dog calling the shots, he is in the movie for about 2 minutes and has no interaction with the characters, he is some odd narrator that say some non sensible quips from time to time. The acting is perhaps the worst I have ever seen. The story, where do I begin I could not understand what this movie was about one minute you got guys shooting each other, and then cops getting shot. Then you got cops talking to the guy who everyone knows shot a cop as if nothing like that happened. Then it jumps around and then you got preaching about how because these killing are in Black neighborhoods no one cares. Then you got Lou Diamond Phillips overacting and then he is having an affair and then more people are getting shot and then you got renegade cops and then you got guys that visit their moms (oh how nice)and you got cops cheating on their wives and cops having threesomes and some drug dealer called the dominican and so on and so on. With my rambling run on sentence I probably do more justice to sum up the story than this movie does. There is also some hypocritical message in the end stating that the New Orleans murder rate is high, then the very next message is something about honoring the fallen soldiers or warriors or something like. Now I'm assuming that by fallen soldiers or warriors, theyre talking about the degenerates drug dealers and gang members that are getting killed in this violence, now call me reasonable (I know the writer and director would never understand this) but isn't saying the violence is too high and then saying the guys who got killed were heroes even though there they same type of people perpetrating the violence is kind of hypocritic. I mean the whole movie is about gang members or drug dealer killing each other (I think, I really don't know what the movie was about), but that's okay because theyre warriors, but the killing is bad.
