    I went and saw this today and I was expecting something much worse. While I was pleasantly surprised, that doesn't mean it was that great.

    It winds up being a lot like the film The Gauntlet which starred Clint Eastwood. Basically, an older cop is sent on an errand to transport the witness of a crime. However, the people the witness is going to testify against are crooked cops. I think you can guess the rest from there.

    While I don't totally recommend it, I don't think a matinee viewing is out of the question if you feel up to it.

    Thanks for the review.

    Sounds like a DVD worthy film.

    Well Mindtrix, that wasn't hard to figure out. The picture was of the main character in his younger years and the apartment belonged to an ex girlfriend.

    I was pleasantly surprised even if Mos Def's voice was annoying.

    I give it 3 out of 5 birthday cakes.

    Ok. Here's a big question. Was the dude he was portraying in your opinion a crackhead? My friends argue that he was because he walked and sounded like a crackhead, but I mean, that could be just him being scared. And if I were a crackhead and people were shooting at me all day, I'd be in a mind to go get some crack.

    M_F_C, you mean Mos Def's character? They only talked about him being a thief not a druggie, but his speach was pretty weird. And he was in a county jail. Where would he have gotten the crack? The crazy dude in the cell next to him?

    I think that's just the way the guy is. If not, then nervousness is next likely.
