In The Mix – Filtered

March 21, 2006
The RandB singer Usher attempts to toughen up his image, Godfather-style, in this film where he acts as a bodyguard for a mob boss’ daughter. This movie is an hour-and-a-half of two people flirting with each other, under the guise of a plot. “In The Mix” portrays the relationship between two [...]

The special effects are great and Joe moves [...]
