    Never gets the mixture right, lurching between bullet-happy shootouts and overwrought domestic content. show more

    What kind of movie is misdirected, poorly acted, preposterously written--and still wholly entertaining? A B-movie, of course. While Illegal Tender has misguided pretensions towards Serious Filmmaking, it's surprisingly likeable if you see it instead as a cheesy thriller good for a lazy Friday night. show more

    Quite an entertaining genre piece boasting a terrifically sinewy lead performance from Wanda De Jesus. show more

    Not a bad movie - certainly action-packed, it holds your interest. And I especially like the mom - what a tough broad this is!

    I absolutely loved this movie. I loved how 'Millie' took charge of her and the lives of her sons. She showed her strength from the very beginning of the movie. She did what she had to do to protect them and made sure that they were financially stable enough to make it on their own. I see so much of myself in her character only I don't have the money. I congratulate John Singleton and the rest of the cast and crew for a film well worth the time, money and effort it took to produce and direct.
