Because I rate this five stars I love all the old timers stars from the 70's. And also Ron O'Neal in this movie last movie due to Cancer. I miss him dearly and wish he was here with us. But I love this movie I watch it every day.

The year 2002 was an odd time in the year of Sid's movie choices. In addition to the regular b horror/action/comedy we'd always watched we also attempted to broaden our horizons. As we walked through the local video store we began to notice a trend of rappers taking a stab at the acting scene. Upon an intense discussion while we placed "I'm Over Here Now" in the guaranteed to be here slot it was decided we'd give the genre a shot. Big mistake! Even for the ultimate b enthusiasts these films are just too bad to enjoy. Of course there's a few laughs when you have Gary Busey teamed up with Ice-T, but that's not nearly enough to get the job done.

Dakota Smith (Fred Williamson/Shaft) is an ex-cop/private eye who is very involved in the community. He comes out of retirement vigilante style when a young local kid gets mixed up with the original gangsta Slim Jim (Ice-T). Awesome! Yes Slim Jim is his name in the movie. The kid owes Slim Jim money but can't pay up. So naturally in this situation the only thing you can do is hire hit-man Gary Busey to throw some cement boots on the young charlie and finish him off. Busey's name is Felix, yeah great name for a hit-man, and he is utterly hilarious. As the plot jumps all over in a confusing fashion we finally come to the point where Shaft and a couple buddies take on T & Busey. It's the ultimate b fight to reclaim the streets in which they do.

As you can tell by the rating this one was really awful. In fact the 1 star is a combined effort of Ice-T and Busey as they dulled out horrific/hilarious acting. You can tell this is the point where Busey stepped foot on the crazy train and has never looked back.
