    Perfectly serviceable late 90’s Dimension Films
    underworld thriller that’s held back by sluggish direction and LL Cool J truly giving his all (as a villainous drug lord named God, no less) while Omar Epps basically sleepwalks through a one-dimensional hero-cop role.

    Appreciated that Jermaine Dupri pops up as a scumbag named Melvin.
