Plot: A private detective takes a job from the mayor that may not be what it appears to be.
Review: So this is day one of movies that were boring trilogy that started in Fun Size. I didn’t know that I was starting this trilogy but it was handed to me. Okay so this film is more about how the characters are bad. All the characters are one note, generic and uninteresting but the movies needs them to be all of those things. The theme is about motivations, right and wrong, politics and the justice system. The problem is you can’t really explore these themes with one note characters. In fact, it undermines everything you are trying to do and say if there is a clear cut case of right and wrong. Allen Hughes has never really been the best with pacing and this movie moves at a snail’s pace. It never works, they throw in plot lines that literally disappear and leaves you wanting something more.
Trivia: This was Allen Hugh’s first movie with his brother. Even more interesting, Tupac Shakur got in a fight with the Hughes Brothers, bragged about it on Yo MTV Raps and was arrested. RIP PAC!
