Call it the black Scarface or the Harlem Godfather or just one hell of an exciting movie.

It's workmanlike and engrossing, but what sticks in the mind are Frank and Richie, not what anybody does.

Absorbing, exciting at times and undeniably entertaining, and is poised to be a major commercial hit. But great it's not.
