B film that easily looks away due to the reasonable cast. Willis and Phillippe can do much better and 50 cents will never be a great actor but all in all it was entertaining enough not to fall asleep.

I found the messy scenario objectionable, but if you're in a tolerant mood, you'll see through it and you can sit through this film in peace. Only at the moments when 50 Cent tries to act does the level of the film drop a bit further, but somewhere he is endearing again.

Not great, but certainly no worse than Steven Seagal's average B movie.

Thirteen in a dozen Action/Crime film, which, despite Bruce Willis playing a part, is hardly worth watching.

A group of friends plot a robbery that goes awry when (Ryan Phillippe) tricks his buddies into making off with the poet. Robber Sonny (50 Cent) doesn't give up and wants revenge. To do this, he contacts the most dangerous gangster boss in the area and that does not make the situation any easier.

Bruce Willis only plays a minor part in this ramshackle Action/Crime movie. Plot lines come and go and apparently with the intent to radiate hipness à la "Pulp Fiction (1994)".

Willis cashes his check for his small role, but it's sad to see the once-promising Ryan Phillippe feel compelled to get caught up in this messy, unbalanced and poorly filmed thriller in which criminal Sonny [50 Cent] goes on a quest. to the man [Phillippe] who shot him to make off himself with the loot from a robbery. Weak story, weak humor, weak film.
