In South Los Angeles, while bringing his beloved son Junior back home from school, the paroled ex-convicted O2 promises his son that he would always come back to him and never leave him alone. However, his car is hijacked and Junior is kidnapped. Without any lead, O2 forces the street vendor Coco to help him to find where his car might have been sent for disassembling. Meanwhile, O2's addicted brother Lucky discovers that the cruel leader of the Outlaw Syndicate, the drug lord Meat, is keeping the boy arrested in a room and asking a ransom of US$ 100,000.00 that he believes O2 have from an old heist. O2 and Coco plot a scheme to put the pimp P-Money and Meat against each other and steal their money.

When O2 first gets his car stolen, he fairly quickly gets up and runs at top speed for many blocks and when he finally gives up, Coco is right there. How did she get so far away from where she talked to him in his car in the time it took him to run there?

You bring me my money… you get your arm back
It sure isn't 'Deep' but it's a fun ride
This isn't a great movie but it's good, fun, mindless entertainment.
I'm a huge fan of "Gridlock'd" and went into this film expecting a
clever take on the action genre from Vondie Curtis Hall. What I got was
an action-packed movie that borrowed from many films before it; its
saving grace is its urban twist, the tongue in cheek humor (Kimora
Lee's cameo is priceless) and its stars, Tyrese Gibson, Meagan Good and
Larenz Tate. If you're fans of either actor, you'll allow yourself to
believe the unbelievable moments–and there are many of them.
The action is non-stop, the hip hop soundtrack delivers in all the
right places and you could plant a pretty garden in the plot holes but
you'll certainly get your money's worth with the gunfights, beautiful
people and adrenaline racing chase scenes–and in the end, isn't that
what action films are all about?
