"For The Love Of Money" is set in a criminal underworld that revolves around power, money, and danger. Protecting family can lead to dark and desperate measures. Gigi Davis (Keri Hilson), is a determined single mom who walked away from a billion-dollar family business to chart her own path. When the pressures of building a better life become too much, Gigi is pulled back into a role she tried to escape––and gets caught up in the thrill of the ride. But when a shadowy figure threatens her daughter's life, Gigi must choose whether to surrender or fight. (Gary Reber)

Special features include a digital code.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture exhibits sharp and clear imagery throughout. The color palette is vivid with strong saturation. Colors often pop. Flesh tones appear perfectly natural. Contrast is naturally dynamic with deep revealing blacks and shadows, Illumination of white levels also appears dynamic. Resolution is excellent with fine detail exhibited throughout in facial features, clothing farics, and object textures. Overall, this is a very vivid picture that is pleasing, though undisguised digital in visual character. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is nicely defined in terms of fidelity and dynamics. The music is a mix bag of hip hop and rap with solid rhythmic beats, and orchestral. Language may be offensive to some viewers but dialogue is articulate with at times good spatial integration. Dialogue can sound forward with body microphones and ADR substitution. Bass extension sounds natural without exaggeration. Atmospherics sound realistic as well as sound effects, which are limited. Surround envelopment is generally subtle but occasionally aggressive. Overall, this is a serviceable soundtrack that is dialogue driven. (Gary Reber)
