DMX's menacing charisma is put to good use in this stylish but hackneyed modern-day noir.

Thumbs down for me.
A bumbling adaptation.
What makes Never Die Alone so monumentally terrible isn't just its bearhugging of gangsta flick convention, but its desperate attempt to imbue run-of-the-mill crime with noir classicism.
The various stories are strong enough to compensate for any acting deficiencies.
If not for the excessive melodrama, lousy dialogue, clumsy acting and generally nasty vibe, "Never Die Alone" could have had the kind of distinctive edge that made urban street dramas like Juice, Menace II Society...
DMX has all the charisma you'd expect of a music star, and he uses it to portray King David as larger than life.
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.
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.
[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.
Hampered by its convoluted plot and a marked melodramatic streak that counteracts the film's cool factor.
A slow starting Urban Thriller that is worth bearing with to reveal the true plot behind the film. In honesty the film is just easy watching, but has been seen time and time again and offers nothing new to this style of film.
Somehow this dark fiction, seems to work out very well.
Disappointed with this one. Had a few moments where I thought okay this movie might have some promise. The only character you somewhat care for is the one played by Michael Ealy. He was the only one who seemed to have depth where the others appeared to be superficial and lost.
Movies awesome. DMX's best film. It's kind of insane, and tragic, through out the entire movie - but the storyline and twist, and everything, is beyond good. It's sad but great, at the same time. It tells it like it is. Check it out
