“Bonnie and Clyde—on the Flip Side”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “An urban action thriller with a sexy 21st-century Bonnie and Clyde. Ex-con O2 (Tyrese Gibson) is suddenly plunged into a life-or-death situation; trying to go straight for the sake of his young son Junior, O2 is forced to go back outside the law when Junior is kidnapped in a carjacking. His son is now in the hands of a vicious criminal leader, Meat (hip-hop superstar The Game). O2’s shady cousin Lucky (Larenz Tate) is caught between loyalties, and so the only person who can or will help O2 now is wily street-smart hustler Coco (Meagan Good). With the clock ticking down, the heat between them rises as they become a lawbreaking couple, on an action-packed tear through town to save Junior and outwit the underworld.”

Neutral—…let me start off by sayin this is not a Christian film in any way. But, it is a good film because it says that family is important and that’s a good thing. This film though is very violent—lots of cursing, but the good thing is it’s not very sexual, but its rated R for a reson and a very good reason at that. Rapper the game is seen holding an arm he just chopped off, and there is cursing, but really that is the only thing. The story is good; the acting is good; the film is good, and the game does a good job of pullin this off and so does every one else.
