Common Sense Media

Violent movie starring rapper DMX is not for kids.

This is not a workable drama, just a series of ideas that rap stars who worship Scarface think would be cool to see.

It's too bad the filmmakers couldn't find a way to present [Goines's] vision without resorting to some pretty threadbare clichés.

Philadelphia Weekly

His death was moving; his life was not. It's a requiem for a scumbag--one who left a whole lotta decent people destroyed in his wake.

Worcester Telegram & Gazette

[A] gritty film noir [about] a sleazy drug pusher looking for redemption, but who - in classic noir fashion - learns that there is no escaping paying for one's past sins.

Boxoffice Magazine

Hampered by its convoluted plot and a marked melodramatic streak that counteracts the film's cool factor.

There's neither action nor thrill in this so-called action thriller, and there's really no reason to sit through it.

| Original Score: 1/4

Never Die Alone is one of those dreadful movies that wants us to think it is deep and philosophical, but it's junk masquerading as art.

If movies like Bad Lieutenant and Spun are your idea of a good time, then DMX has the film for you.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

This is a violence-ridden movie with one of the most despicable characters you ever will see.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

This 'gangsta noir' is a worthy heir to both 'blaxploitation' and to the Warner Bros. gangster classics that linked economic hardship and the allure of crime...

| Original Score: 3.5/4

Jeffrey Westhoff
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Like its main character, Never Die Alone is beyond redemption.

A pimped-up facsimile of David Goines' novel. I can't think of a more apt description of this misogynist and deeply flawed film noir.

Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle

A misogynistic, dull-witted bore.

...the story is certainly a throwback to the films of the '70s.

Paul Sherman
Boston Herald

David's remorse barely registers against the movie's basking in criminal excess. And with the exception of character actor Tiny Lister, the cast tries way too hard to be tough.

The only thing that could improve Never Die Alone is a caring projectionist, a lighter, and a trashcan.

Greenwich Village Gazette

Fans of Goines will want to see this, because this is the first of his works to make it to the silver screen. Other than that, there's no reason to see it.

A bumbling adaptation.
