  1. This movie had no particular agenda, really, which in itself, is great. It didn't pretend, just proceeded to assemble the parts of a down-to-earth crime story. This gritty drama possesses a sense of validity that its glossy, slick, higher-budget counterparts often lack. This made for a refreshing difference. Lots of surprises from a well-written story that builds the plot deliberately.

    Adam Rodriguez, of CSI Miami fame, did an excellent job of acting. We're accustomed to expect this from him, but for some reason a lot of television actors encounter difficulty doing as well in movies. Better-than-decent acting, and excellent "street feel", added to the production values by 50 Cent.

    I particularly enjoyed the local flavor of the Michigan scenery. Felt almost like New England, in some ways. I had to give a look at the production information to tell where it was shot, to be certain. There was no overuse of cop-props, or crash scenes, but still plenty of action as things unfolded. I think the whole cast, and everyone involved, deserve a "pat on the back" and congrats for this one. Worth a watch, even two.

  2. 5 means I got what I asked for but I wouldn't watch it again. Like any other good/bad cop drama this is about a good cop being killed by a group of dirty cops. The investigation reveals the good cop wasn't so good and the dirty cops not so bad. the suspense is a lie, see the real deal is this is a vehicle for two pretty-boy actors one slapstick gross-out comedy and the other carrying David CARUSO's water on CSI to dig into their acting chops. They brood, they shout, they overact, in the most plainest I can do more, you won't write the script so we stole the script mode. but all in all i liked it, it was an enjoyable movie if it was a book it'd be a page turner. 50cent was in the movie if only for 10 seconds. He probably got paid more than both the leading men combined for the 10 seconds of him grimacing and slurring.if I were them I'd chip in half my salary to him because people are watching for him.

  3. This is a decent film and I think that's the perfect word to use, decent.

    The acting wasn't awful but like another review said I think it was over acted in parts. Good plot, story and flow to the movie although nothing stood out to make it more than a good average film.

    I had this film bought for me as I am a 50 Cent fan. His part in this film is nothing more than a cameo although he does do well in his role and perfect for it also. However if this is the only reason you want to watch the film it is not worth it.

    If you like to 'collect' DVD's I would suggest to buy the film as you will enjoy one or two viewings of this. If your not that type, wait until you see it on the TV and spend your money elsewhere.

  4. This is certainly a good movie worth seeing again to focus on all aspects.. as it has many twists and you need to keep watching.. it's super fast paced which is great and i love about. Michael Matthias acting is good in this movie and I look forward to seeing more from his end..

    I won't go into detail, but you end up thinking everyone cannot be trusted.. and everyone is part of the bad crew… pleasant surprises. One of the things I disliked is the lighting (felt too dark) and also the way it was done. It could have been done in a smoother more professional way… i kept thinking that it must be 2003 movie, but its a 2010.
