Product Description

In the ruthless world of contract killing, the line between business and pleasure is one that should never be crossed. Music sensation TREACH (HBO's "Oz", Rapper) stars in the most explosive and intense thriller of the year - LOVE AND A BULLET. Also starring KENT MASTERS-KING (The Wash), FREEZ LUV (Baby Boy, Coyote Ugly), and WALTER JONES (Malcolm X, American Gun). Maleek "Ghost" Bishop (Treach) is a nasty, dangerous killing machine - a street animal loaded with rage and packing a hair-trigger temper that's primed to explode. As word of his prowess in the fine art of murder spreads, he finds himself recruited to join an elite band of professional hitmen. But when the big boss assigns him tokeep an eye on his super-sexy girlfriend, his loyalties are put to the ultimate test. Now, the bandof brothers that previously watched his back are eager to drive a bullet in it ... and the shooter becomes the target when the best of the worst come gunning for revenge.

Amazon.com

Love and a Bullet has a sly satirical tone that lifts it above the common herd of would-be Quentin Tarantino movies. Rap star Treach plays Bishop, a hit man who declares, "The world is full of people that, quite frankly, we all could do without." But his rationalizations start to fall apart when he's assigned to kill a woman who, in his eyes, deserves to live. Plus, he suspects that his boss--who runs an elite team of assassins--may have killed Bishop's own lover, a beautiful government agent. Naturally it's all building up to a typical spectacle of over-the-top violence with some gratuitous skin along the way (including full-frontal nudity from the very buff leading man), but what makes Love and a Bullet work is that the filmmakers use its absurd reality to make sneaky comments about race relations and job satisfaction. --Bret Fetzer

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining! December 7, 2002
By BIGTONE
Format:DVD
Okay, maybe this isn't a big budget action thriller, but it is definitely an action thriller. Trech and the rest of the cast don't let you down in this sexy, funny, action packed film. I rented it, but I'm gonna have to buy this soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. February 14, 2005
Format:DVD
You really don't expect much
from movies where rappers receive
top billing, but this movie
manages to stand apart from the genre.
Not only is this a fantastic action film,
but it also successfully combines
elements of comedy, social satire,
and blatant stereotype.
The absolute best thing about this movie
is the script. Eloquent, funny, intelligent,
and full of surprises.

Since I'm a person with an overactive mind
and short attention span, I'm always quick
to note which movies are able to maintain my
interest throughout the entire film. This film
does that and never disappoints.

I highly recommend this movie for purchase or rental.

Above all, I'm glad at least ONE rapper has turned out
to be a good actor.

3.0 out of 5 stars loved the frontal June 11, 2004
By candy91
Format:DVD
This movie was good. Worth watching. Worth buying. Decent acting and actors. The plot a little far fetched but still good.
Ladies definite plus was the FULL FRONTAL nude, strip scene with Treach. Too bad is wasn't longer and closer. The scene that is!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining action film with a good storyline January 25, 2004
Format:DVD
What looks like another run of the mill rapper driven action flick, turns out to be a solid film, with some thought provoking dialogue and above average action sequences. The movie rolls on at a relatively deliberate pace in the beginning with a narrative telling a significant part of the back story.
Narratives in movies can really be hit or miss depending on the nature that they are told and their substance and relationship to the plot. With this film running just a hair over 80 minutes, the narrative enhances plot points and also serves as a background informational case study on characters introduced in the movie. The narrative never really interferes with the pace movie, and doesn't detract from any of the action sequences.
The action in this movie is primarily gunplay; however, Malik's character is adept in martial arts and has a particularly intense battle with one of the thugs towards the end of the film. Andre "Chyna" McCoy did some of the action stunt sequences and as usual his moves were fluid and concentrated.
The movie's tone is decisively urban with several of the jokes and innuendo being directed specifically towards a young black male audience. Most of the lead actors and actresses are black with the main crime boss being white. This leads to further racial stereotyping. What makes this movie palatable for a typical white guy to watch is the two simple facts that there are copious amounts of humor thrown in and the story is rather entertaining.
To add spice to the story Malik's character is a hit man with second thoughts about his final job. As his boss has asked him to either kill his (the bosses) girlfriend or wait for his call and leave her alive. He soon realizes that he has to make a choice, as he has feelings for this girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Im from Piittsburg, ..we dont play that *%$# April 2, 2004
Format:DVD
Ramsy and Kantz have soaked up movie influences that obviously go back decades.But it is to Tarantino's generation,(my generation) that these funny and energetic moviemakers belong.
Its not just "influence" that you see, but out and out theft. From "Reservoir Dogs", opening ally walk, to "Goodfellas" cooking, gun selling, helocoptor watching sequence, these guys are caught red handed. but it works. It all hits as refreshing and some what new, although clearly falling into the Q.T. world.
You should also marvel at the fact that these guys made the whole thing for about 300,000. With that minimal budget, and (according to them) hurried shooting schedules, they have created a movie far superior to so many other boring action films. Compare this film to "Gone in Sixty Seconds, or BadBoys I&II, and you should be impressed.
As far as the acting goes, it's very good for an inexperienced (mostly) cast. I think Treach(the rapper) could have a real future in action films, he carries this one well with an almost constant running narrative, which is engaging and funny. Plus ladies he's willing to do full frontal. The scene chewing thief in this film however is Sam Scabber, as the "disgruntled, older, face like a fist) hitman. His performance will leave you wanting to see more of him.
All in all a fun action flick. Enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars "LOVE AND A" thousand rounds of "BULLETS". March 14, 2003
Format:DVD
LOVE AND A BULLET poked fun at the somewhat structure of syndicate life by using Malik Bishop, played by Treach, as a hitman who succeeds from street killer to mafia life after being recruited by a kingpin who uses him to eliminated those who stand in the way of high-powered associates. This film was action-packed and also held a dose of humor at what life is like with "the family" and who get promoted to side of the big man. Another plus was Malik's commentaries and how he found amazement in what some people will kill for. There were some unexpected moves within the movie, which added to the conflict, and the romance with the beautiful and dangerous Hylene added dimension. The end battle with the syndicate over an act of conscience was almost like watching a video game, it was so over the top, but then, so was this movie. Treach's moody, bad brother character whose received a change of heart was a welcome sight to what could have been a one-dimensional character, and made what could have been a one-dimensional movie into a film that was more than the sum of it's parts.

I think this movie is a gangsta/love story. It shows how a person can be heartless and have a heart at the same time.
