Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This run-of-the-mill cops-and-robbers thriller is distinguished by strong performances from Omar Epps and rapper-turned-actor LL Cool J. Epps plays a young undercover cop who gets in over his head while investigating a charismatic drugs lord. He is soon torn between duty and their budding friendship. LL Cool J plays the likeable villain, an interesting combination of kindness and malice. Beyond the acting, however, this movie offers no surprises, and an unnecessary romance between Epps and Nia Long severely impedes the pace.
