Viewed this just yesterday and I have to have it for myself on DVD. This is "Internal Affairs" & "The Corruptor" combined, but taken to another level--this movie (as unethical, debased, avaricious, secular, materialistic, brutal and downright sinister as it is) was entertaining, gripping, powerful, fast-paced, bold, funny and educational. Educational from a criminal or subjective point of view. The main character did lots of foolish and crazy things, but you may also come to realize he was pretty intelligent, nimble and brazen. Not a movie to be viewed by kids, but great adult action and entertainment. Mario van Peebles gave a superb performance...and he's not at all one of my favorite actors. If not for the wayward, perverse and twisted nature of this movie, you would have heard more about this one.
