The hour and 32 minute synopsis is a great depiction of what a story that is brought to life can look like. The director, Marc Levin makes what could have been a bad episode of cops a fully cinematic experience.

The movie is worth taking the time to watch because it can be compared to BET’s American Gangster but it is 10x better.
