I had a problem with Curtis Jacksons acting and I don't think it was the character he protrayed. Curtis never showed any anger, compssion, regret etc.. when you are acting you have to be able to show differint emotions through out the role that you are playing. He was very monotone in every scene.

I thought the film was ok. However I would not recommend it to any one.

1. I like checking out DVDs via Redbox and noticed this movie that I've never heard about... with one of my favorite actors (Deniro). Well, the adage is true, if you've never heard of it, there's likely a very good reason for it (ie it's totally lame).
2. This is movie is so bad, I mean so bad, that I just couldn't finish it. I just can't believe how bad this movie is and more perplexing is how in the world did DeNiro get involved in this complete dud?

Im not here to tell you to like Robert De Niro or Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson. I took a chance renting this from Redbox and was not dissappointed. If entertainment is what your looking for, then you will be entertained by some excellent action and fight sceens along with some quality acting from Forest Whitaker and even 50 Cent himself. I even recommended the movie to some co-workers who agreed it was a good solid movie. The Director also did a great job.

"If you could put a price tag on it how much would you say your life is worth?" Malo (Jackson) is following in his father's footsteps and has just joined the police force. When his father's former partner Sarcone (De Niro) hears of this he recruits him to join his squad as a detective. When he realizes that the squad he is in is full of cops who don't play by the rules he is left to make a decision, follow Sarcone or reveal the truth. I have to admit right off that I wasn't expecting much from this movie. 50 Cent is not a good actor at all and De Niro has really been slipping lately. All that said this movie was much better then I was expecting but it was still a little lame. The biggest problem is that it was trying so hard to be another "Training Day" that it never really found it's way on it's own. I do have to say that 50 Cent is becoming a much better actor but this is still yet another "Training Day" rip off that is no where near as good. I was expecting worse from this but this is still not as good as the cover makes it appear. Overall, better then I though but I hope this movie is the one to finally stop all the "Training Day" rip-offs. None of them ever work. I give it a B-.

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson continues to defy the odds as a talent less actor who is also by no means a movie star and is a half assed producer who's only discernable talent seems to be the same as schlockmiester Uwe Boll, which is to attract first rate talent in front of the camera for films that shouldn't have been made in the first place, let alone be seen. Last year fiddy co-starred with Bruce Willis in Set-up, then opposite an all-star cast in 13 and next will be seen on-screen with Nic Cage and John Cusack in the Frozen Ground, in the mean time we get the rapper turned guy on film alongside Oscar winners Robert De Niro and Forest Whitaker in the dismal and embarrassing new turkey Freelancers. One thing is for sure, De Niro has now truly hit rock bottom.
Jackson stars as Jonas Malo, a rookie second generation cop who infiltrates his pops old crew, lead by Joe Sarcone (De Niro), a police captain-cum-pimp who runs a club for off duty officers and hos. Malo wants to find the one responsible for daddy's untimely demise, I'll give you fifty cents if you can't guess who did it, and extract some street justice, or something to the like, maybe just turn him over to internal affairs.
Full of logical loopholes, De Niro recruits 50 Cent fresh out of the academy, no time to build trust, job experience or any of that other garbage that would be included in a better film. Vinnie Jones has a badly constructed cameo where he for no reason what so ever just spills the beans about the whole dirty cop organization and their "bosses" to Jackson and his cronies.
The script, credited to L. Philippe Casseus, is one long series of unspeakably bad dialogue, commenting on "asses" seems to be every other phrase, characters and situations are recycled from dozens if not hundreds of old cop shows and movies.

Well the supporting actors in this movie are crazy talented. I'd like to put all the blame on 50 Cent but the script had holes like a slice of Swiss cheese. It was cops being blatant criminals all the time. So much they might as well have had the words crook unit on their cars. This was no "Training Day". It could have been like that if you had a better script and maybe not 50 cent. I'm always surprised how wooden he is. After seeing this all I could say was "Why?"

terrible acting and even worse plot. Hard to understand why De Niro and Whitaker would associate themselves with something so bad as this joke.
