WESLEY SNIPES IS so good as a ruthlessly ambitious urban crack lord that he almost overcomes the wretched performances of glummer-than-thou Judd Nelson and shaky rapper Ice-T as dedicated cops. Director Mario Van Peebles gives the film a refreshing, old-fashioned, unequivocal good guys versus bad guys tone. And Saturday Night Live's young Chris Rock adds impressive support as a morally and physically disintegrating addict. (Warner)
