A defining film of the 90’s, staring the then undisputed champ of the action genre (Wesley Snipes), as a power thirsty crime lord and his gang of equally brutish men. Known in the streets as the Cash Money Brothers, referring to the large sums of money they are making from selling Crack. With a million a week in income, this becomes a serious threat. One Cop, Scotty (Ice-T) is aware and determined to bring them down. After few failed attempts and schemes backfired, the only way out, or in should we say, is for Scotty to try and infiltrate the Gang posing as a drug pusher.

A staple and a reference in the genre, a movie that cemented the reputation of Snipes as the New Jack of action films… Explosive fun!
