Cuba was an undercover cop separated from his family. He gets found out and his family is killed. Afterward, he teams up with Jack Daniels to live a miserable life as the Toronto police force's "Dirty Harry light". In the city there is a drug lord with a techno dance club, where sex can be had in the restrooms as lovers snort lines off each others body (you know the place). Mike, a young drug dealer wants out. He cares for his younger sister. He hijacks a statue of the Virgin Mary made of heroin paste and ransoms its location to his former employer (guess how that works out).

I didn't think Cuba could get a worse role after "Hit List", but I was wrong. After so many good films, he is getting dog after dog. It is time for a new agent. The film has the lousy plot of a disjointed grindhouse film, but none of the other qualities that make it watchable. During the argument/fight between two guys over who took the statue, the acting got so bad I had to ask, "Was this really the best take? Couldn't they have shot the scene over?"

The movie pretends to make a statement on drug trafficking and redemption, but falls way short. 1 1/2 stars.

Can you have a second chance to stop a tragedy? After losing his wife and child, undercover cop John Hebron (Gooding Jr.) is struggling to forgive himself for not saving them. After a similar crime takes place he is given a second chance. After watching Cuba in "Ticking Clock", which I really liked, I had high hopes for this one. I was a little disappointed. The idea of the movie is very interesting, but the execution is lacking. A plot that has so much potential ends up being slow moving and never given the push it needs to make it as interesting as it sounds. This is not a terrible movie, but definatly not one of Cuba's best. It would be nice to see him get out of the Seagal, Kilmer & Snipes-like direct-to-video movies though and back into main stream movies. He has the talent for them still. I give it a C.

Would I watch again? - I don't think I will.

Amazon policy is to not talk about other critiques on a film here, but I must say the four glowing descriptions are by one-time reviewers, and I only looked into it because the film was just really that bad.

The story follows a depressed cop as he muddles through a strange turn of events in his post family-killed-by-the-bad-guys life. Christian Slater plays the cussing, drinking killer priest (all only in church though) and Kim Coates plays the bad guy. At the ten-minute mark the screening became almost a laugh track as so many things had already gone wrong; The BD clarity was DVD to below average quality, the sound had been mixed poorly in every scene, the writing was obviously being improvised (later proven so in the making-of), and the overall feel of the film was beneath the low-budget approach.

The long list of things that kept going wrong with the film made it to where I ended up offering the film for free and no customers were interested that had watched the clips. The music score drowned out dialogue, the flashbacks throughout the film of varying characters were cartoonish, and when the two main leads (Gooding and Slater) made it appear they were unhappy and miserable doing their parts - the film just becomes pointless. Kim Coates does save the day though, both in the film and in the making-of. The 11:49 minute supplement is also laughable as they left in all of the "chaotic" issues in making this film. But Kim gave a great snippet about knowing Gary Oldman years before and the advice shared by Gary to him, worth the watch just for that.

The packaging shows Region 1 coded (obviously Millenium does not even invest in making their BD art correct), the sound says 5.1 but I dispute even that, English and Spanish subs. Writing about this will seem like I am trying to find more things wrong with the film but mostly I was making sure the four planted reviews here were countered just a bit. Not even a renter.

I'm a big Cuba Gooding fan and was sorry to see he'd accepted a role in this terrible movie... He's obviously dropped his standards to an all time low. This movie was filmed the majority of the time in a strip club, with several side shows of people doing the deed (couples, threesomes, in the bathroom & anywhere else they can find). Oh, and lets not forget the Virgin Mary that is INSIDE the CHURCH weeping and the members think it's a miracle from God... actually it's because she's full of cocaine! Then the Priest (Christian Slater) agrees to participate in a plot to kill the drug dealers, & allows it to take place INSIDE the CHURCH!!! There's a big shootout scene where the priest is actually chasing the bad guys between the pews, shooting & killing them. I feel the description of the movie is VERY misleading... while there's a LITTLE of the "story" described in the plot, it leaves out all the JUNK that takes place the MAJORITY of the time.

My husband and I like to watch movies on the weekend and we recently watched Sacrifice [Blu-ray]. Cuba Gooding Jr. is a great actor and did a wonderful job in this movie. The other actors were good and the plot had lots of depth. However, there were a few parts that I felt dragged on a bit. I would have liked to have seen more action but overall, I would say that it's a decent viewing experience. Three stars!
