This is very likely the best film I've seen about setting it off. 1996's "Set if Off" was part of two important trends in the 90s: the resurgent crime film and the black film. It's novelty is that it's four women who are the criminals. Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett, Vivica A. Fox, and Kimberly Elise are four friends who start robbing banks. John C. McGinley is the cop who is after them. Look for Dr. Dre in a small role. Directed by F. Gary Gray ("The Italian Job," "Friday').

This was a great movie about what happens in the 'hood when all odds are against you even when you try to do the right thing. I didn't the character Luther for ripping off the sisters, even though they did the same thing to the banks that they robbed, but they were trying to get enough cash so that they could get out of the 'hood. the main cop in the movie realized that at the end of the movie that he lost capturing one of the sista bank robbers. She got away with the loot but she lost all of her homies girlfriends and possibly the man that she had started to love.
