Default 'Carlito's Way: Rise to Power' - High-Def Digest review

Just posted Kenneth's review of the direct-to-video prequel 'Carlito's Way: Rise to Power.' He was underwhelmed by the film itself, and says its HD DVD debut is relatively unimpressive as well.

Full review here:

Wow. Killed it. But out of curiosity why did the review take so long? Almost two months to the date of it's release.

Kenneth might just have some free time on his hands around the holidays and is using that to catch up on some of the lower priority releases that have been collecting dust.

I write reviews for another website, and I've been doing the same thing over the past week or so.

Oh, no worries -- I wasn't taking it as a criticism at all. I think we'd all like to see every review up before a title's release.

Thanks as always for posting!

The only thing I needed to know about this movie was that

1) Sean Combs is in the movie.
2) Luis Guzman is in the movie.

Fans of the original will see a big problem with #2
