Gritty but empty urban drama about an ex-con (Tyrese Gibson) pulled back into the world of street violence when his young son is taken during a carjacking and, unable to turn to the law, he must race against time to track down the vicious thugs responsible with the help of his cousin (Larenz Tate) and a street-savvy prostitute (Meagan Good), robbing banks with the latter to get money to secure the boy's safe return. Buried somewhere in director Vondie Curtis-Hall's film is a story about a father and son, but be warned anything positive it has to say is drowned out by bullets and brutality. Strong violence, including shootings and a grisly dismemberment, larceny, an implied sexual encounter and some suggestive images, and pervasive rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
