Here’s what the distributor says about their film: Jeff Cole (Epps) is an undercover cop assigned to bring down ‘God,’ the most ruthless crime lord in the city (LL Cool J). As Cole gets deeper into ‘God’s’ crew, the line between the man he is and the street character he’s created, gets more and more blurred. He knew the players, he knew the risks, he just didn’t know how far he would have to go.

…populated largely by distant types …extended torture-and-beating scene .dialogue that sounds like leftovers from …Mod Squad misfire…

…a tale that has been told many times before… we know exactly how it is going to end …has its stylish moments and a handful of strong performances, but seeing that it breaks no new ground, it makes me think that the movie only exists as a marketing tool for the soundtrack CD.
