QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A thug tries to fend off rivals and keep control of his criminal empire while in prison.
PLOT:
Given a 15 to 30 year prison sentence for his criminal ways, Philly kingpin Beans (BEANIE SIGEL) hopes to keep his ABM Crime Syndicate in business, particularly since his minions -- including Baby Boy (OMILLIO SPARKS) and D-Nice (OSCHINO) -- are still on the streets. Yet, Beans -- who rooms with cellmate Freeway (FREEWAY) -- must contend with the actions of other crime bosses who are looking to move in on his territory.

There's El Loco (VICTOR N.O.R.E. SANTIAGO), who's currently imprisoned with Beans -- and still associates with his mentor, pseudo father and former boxer Biggis (MICHAEL BENTT) -- but is about to be paroled. On the outside, there's Dame (DAMON DASH) whose Umbrella Network has deep pockets and plenty of manpower, and his addiction to money gives him plenty of motivation to take Beans' business.

As the other players make their moves, Beans tries to keep control of his territory and business, all leading to an inevitable, violent showdown between the various crime bosses and their men.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For pervasive violence and language, strong sexuality and drug content.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
Considering their criminal and otherwise thug-related behavior, actions and attitudes, none of the major characters would be viewed as good role models for kids.

(Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated drama. Profanity consists of at least a whopping 271 "f" and 105 "s" words, while other expletives and colorful phrases are also uttered (including in songs). Some sexually related dialogue is present, as is a montage showing one man having rear entry sex with many different women (with movement, bare breasts and related sounds). Some women are also seen in revealing attire.

Violence consists of many people shot to death or wounded by gunfire (including by a kid), while all sorts of fighting, beatings and other harm is present. Some of that has bloody results (although not as much as one might expect) and some of the violence may be unsettling to some more sensitive viewers. The gangster/thug lifestyle may be enticing for some kids to imitate, while all of the major characters have extreme cases of bad attitudes for their actions and attitudes.

Various characters smoke and/or drink, while some smoke pot and there are various scenes showing the presence, manufacturing or distribution of a variety of other drugs. Should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home, you may want to look more closely at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.
