STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning
'Rich' (50 Cent) is a ruthless street gangster, intent on wiping out the competition and striking up a weapons deal with some other gangsters. Angel (Val Kilmer) has just been released from prison and has been placed undercover in Rich's organisation to square a deal with the police and assist in an investigation, building up to an explosive final confrontation.
'A drama set in the world of drug dealing', is the simplistic summary of this film on the rental sleeve. And, indeed, it's hard to decipher any more of it than that, simply because there isn't any plot to it. It's barely seventy five minutes worth of style over substance, seeming like just an excuse for 'Fiddy cent' to plug some new tracks on his latest album. His acting is as flat as you'd expect, and ditto the now grossly puffy and out of shape Kilmer, a real 'what happened to them?' case.
This looks promising on the cover, but the reality is a very sloppy and messed up affair indeed. One to avoid. *
