Nino Brown is an American success story, an entrepreneur who's found the ultimate cash crop: crack. Nino thinks he's untouchable but he's wrong: a handful of street-smart cops are determined to bring him down. New Jack City is a gangster movie of the '90s, a hard-hitting tale with "a gritty anti drug message". Roger Ebert, Ice-T, Judd Nelson and Mario Van Peebles portray policemen who lay it all on the line. Wesley Snipes is the angel-of-death kingpin with a city in his grasp.
