  • Poster: B-

Review:

It's stylish, but not exciting. It has an appeal that is entirely superficial, which may be sufficient to draw its target audience.

  • Trailer: B-

Review:

Mario Van Peebles has an uneven history of filmmaking dating back to his feature directing debut on 1991's New Jack City. Since then, he's barely made a blip on critics' or audiences radars. This looks like a cross between Spike Lee and John Singleton, but without the hype or excess.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
