Slicker, funnier and more professional than its predecessor, State Property 2, with Damon Dash at its helm tones down the original.

By Nathan Rabin
Dash directs with a certain visual flare and a sense of humor, but as the film lumbers toward its climax, keeping track of the innumerable allegiances and double-crosses becomes an exercise in futility.
