They’re calling the shots.
Kool is an up and coming rapper who lives in a neighborhood where there is a lot of gang activity and violence. He is seeing a girl named LaShawna who are having big plans for her future and is soon going to college. Their future changes however when LaShawna finds a man stabbed to death in the streets and gets pinned for the murder and sent to jail. Kool does everything he can to get her out and together with officer Tully they make a plan for Kool to go undercover into the big street gang of the local mobster Saint and bring him down.
This is a highly enjoyable movie with big flaws. Master P’s directing had improved a lot since the days of I’m Bout it and with a bigger budget he was able to make a fun action flick out of the not so great screenplay that he had written. There are some huge plot holes and some scenes that are just not necessary for the movie like the karate part of Kools character which doesn’t go anywhere. But sometimes badly made movies can still provide enough entertainment so that you will remember the good parts over the bad.
