Product Description

Amazon.ca

Love and a Bullet has a sly satirical tone that lifts it above the common herd of would-be Quentin Tarantino movies. Rap star Treach plays Bishop, a hit man who declares, "The world is full of people that, quite frankly, we all could do without." But his rationalizations start to fall apart when he's assigned to kill a woman who, in his eyes, deserves to live. Plus, he suspects that his boss--who runs an elite team of assassins--may have killed Bishop's own lover, a beautiful government agent. Naturally it's all building up to a typical spectacle of over-the-top violence with some gratuitous skin along the way (including full-frontal nudity from the very buff leading man), but what makes Love and a Bullet work is that the filmmakers use its absurd reality to make sneaky comments about race relations and job satisfaction. --Bret Fetzer

Ramsy and Kantz have soaked up movie influences that obviously go back decades.But it is to Tarantino's generation,(my generation) that these funny and energetic moviemakers belong.
Its not just "influence" that you see, but out and out theft. From "Reservoir Dogs", opening ally walk, to "Goodfellas" cooking, gun selling, helocoptor watching sequence, these guys are caught red handed. but it works. It all hits as refreshing and some what new, although clearly falling into the Q.T. world.
You should also marvel at the fact that these guys made the whole thing for about 300,000. With that minimal budget, and (according to them) hurried shooting schedules, they have created a movie far superior to so many other boring action films. Compare this film to "Gone in Sixty Seconds, or BadBoys I&II, and you should be impressed.
As far as the acting goes, it's very good for an inexperienced (mostly) cast. I think Treach(the rapper) could have a real future in action films, he carries this one well with an almost constant running narrative, which is engaging and funny. Plus ladies he's willing to do full frontal. The scene chewing thief in this film however is Sam Scabber, as the "disgruntled, older, face like a fist) hitman. His performance will leave you wanting to see more of him.
All in all a fun action flick. Enjoy

What looks like another run of the mill rapper driven action flick, turns out to be a solid film, with some thought provoking dialogue and above average action sequences. The movie rolls on at a relatively deliberate pace in the beginning with a narrative telling a significant part of the back story.
Narratives in movies can really be hit or miss depending on the nature that they are told and their substance and relationship to the plot. With this film running just a hair over 80 minutes, the narrative enhances plot points and also serves as a background informational case study on characters introduced in the movie. The narrative never really interferes with the pace movie, and doesn't detract from any of the action sequences.
The action in this movie is primarily gunplay; however, Malik's character is adept in martial arts and has a particularly intense battle with one of the thugs towards the end of the film. Andre "Chyna" McCoy did some of the action stunt sequences and as usual his moves were fluid and concentrated.
The movie's tone is decisively urban with several of the jokes and innuendo being directed specifically towards a young black male audience. Most of the lead actors and actresses are black with the main crime boss being white. This leads to further racial stereotyping. What makes this movie palatable for a typical white guy to watch is the two simple facts that there are copious amounts of humor thrown in and the story is rather entertaining.
To add spice to the story Malik's character is a hit man with second thoughts about his final job. As his boss has asked him to either kill his (the bosses) girlfriend or wait for his call and leave her alive. He soon realizes that he has to make a choice, as he has feelings for this girl.

LOVE AND A BULLET poked fun at the somewhat structure of syndicate life by using Malik Bishop, played by Treach, as a hitman who succeeds from street killer to mafia life after being recruited by a kingpin who uses him to eliminated those who stand in the way of high-powered associates. This film was action-packed and also held a dose of humor at what life is like with "the family" and who get promoted to side of the big man. Another plus was Malik's commentaries and how he found amazement in what some people will kill for. There were some unexpected moves within the movie, which added to the conflict, and the romance with the beautiful and dangerous Hylene added dimension. The end battle with the syndicate over an act of conscience was almost like watching a video game, it was so over the top, but then, so was this movie. Treach's moody, bad brother character whose received a change of heart was a welcome sight to what could have been a one-dimensional character, and made what could have been a one-dimensional movie into a film that was more than the sum of it's parts.

I now feel dumber after watching this movie, the only reason i give it even one star is because you have to, and maybe because the music was good. the acting in this movie is terrible, most of the movie is just them trying to do ... stunts & swearing a lot. i wanted to see this movie so bad, i thought this would be the type of movie i like, i have liked all the other types like this, i saw the ads in the source, i read stuff about the movie & i couldnt wait to see it, now i wish i hadnt of wasted 87 minutes of my time to watch .... treach... great rapper, wasnt too bad of an actor, wasnt the worst part of the movie, the one thing i couldnt stand was how corny it was. treach's (bishop) boss in the movie was a corny-... white man who wanted to be like martin luther king. this kind of ... should not even be put out on shelves. when i rented it i had a choice between this one or the other movie i wanted to see, Undisputed, i still havent seen that and i wish i would've rented that instead, if you want my opinion, do not waste your time, its not worth it, this movie is a bunch of ... that is put out just to kill braincells. the one good thing about the movie was that the music in it was great, if your a naughty by nature fan, a lil jon fan, or just a rap fan in general i would suggest (trying to find) the soundtrack. it had great music, but dont waste your time with the movie.
