They're a new breed of gangster. The new public enemy. The new family of crime.
A gangster, Nino, is in the Cash Money Brothers, making a million dollars every week selling crack. A cop, Scotty, discovers that the only way to infiltrate the gang is to become a dealer himself.

Ignore the previous poster...brilliant film. Propa classic, ok maybe not Oscar winning performances but it's a good lil story with some great characters.

One of the most stupid movies I have ever seen! Black drug lords are battling the Italian Mafia and the Police in New York City to establish a new drug cartel. The actors' performances are lousy, the plot seen already a hundred times and the lines so fucking bad that one wants to tear out one's hair (or at least fast-forward the movie).

The ONLY good scene is the last one where Nino lies dead on the floor and the appeal to fight drugs and especially drug dealers as hard as possible is shown: "[...] If we don't confront the problem realistically -- without empty slogans and promises -- the drugs will continue to destroy [... the] country".
