Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writer-director Jim Kouf crams the screen with enough incident, coincidence and characters to keep you watching."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Tupac was a very promising actor -- it's a shame this was the kind of film he usually wound up in."

‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
