Remember The Gauntlet?  The old Eastwood flick from the 70s?  This reminds me of it—a lot.  But instead of moving a prisoner from Vegas to Phoenix (or was it the other way round?), this one transits Manhattan’s Chinatown (a super location).  Not a great flick, but Mos Def is terrific.  My respect for this guy’s acting continues to grow.  Contrast his Eddie Bunker here with his Vivien Thomas in Something the Lord Made.  He absorbs into a part.
