    Oddly enough, given his limited role, the movie seems to have been made around Nelly; when he's not onscreen, everything falls apart. show more

    Too bad this movie is more tepid than the average Snipes potboiler and even rustier than his mindless Blade pictures. show more

    Enough to give you brain strain -- and the pay-off is negligible. show more
