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-.

Three boys from the hood were taken out of jail and enrolled in the police academy by a cougar named Lydia (Desperate Housewife Dana Delany). Malo's (50 Cents) father was once in the police force. The three graduates are assigned to crooked cop Joseph Sarcone (Robert De Niro) who deals drugs and skims on the takes. They become part of the bad cop crime scene.

The plot develops as we discover both Lydia's husband and Malo's father were murdered. Malo has two love interests in this film, neither of which was acting. Anabelle Acosta plays his childhood sweetheart...when he was a thug and Beau Garrett is a bar tender at a special bad boy cop bar who like Malo likes peanut butter.

For those who like crooked cop dramas, this one pasts the smell test, largely due to the strength of the supporting cast. 50 Cents' performance was far from credible and weighed down the film. He needs to learn his productions would do better if he wasn't in them.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, sex, party girls nudity, n-word.

It was a thrilling rollercoaster ride movie with, of course, great acting by Forest Whitaker and Robert DeNiro who made the movie come alive. You could swear they were actually the bad people portrayed their acting was that good. Actually believe real life is what this movie is based on. There were three lead police detectives showing the ropes to three rookies. Out of the three only one was a genuine good cop who showed the rookie the right way to do his police work. The other two were evil and showed their rookies the wrong way. It probably imitates life. Hope to see more movies starring these Whitaker and DeNiro because whatever movie they're in is wonderful.

Bias Alert!! I am not a fan of Curtis "50 Cents" Jackson because his acting is unbelievable or unconvincing to me. Since he is the central character in this film I have a major problem giving this anything more than 3 stars. Although this movie also has two "A" list actors in Robert De Niro and Forest Whitaker, this is still a hood movie. But if you like action movies like I do then you will enjoy this just the same. There is enough gun play and fighting. This is not a family movie by any stretch of the imagination, sex, nudity, drugs, foul language and of course plenty of violence.
