Movie Info

From a script from first-time scribe James Gibson comes this filmed adaptation of ex-gangster Donald Goines' 1974 novel Never Die Alone. Directed by Ernest R. Dickerson (Juice, Bones), the film stars David Arquette as Paul Pawlowski, a reporter who takes an interest in gang kingpin King David, played by rapper/actor DMX. When King David is killed, Pawlowski happens upon the criminal's journal and envelops himself in his story. From there, the rise and fall of King David is covered in flashbacks as Pawlowski makes his way through the diary. Aisha Tyler and Jennifer Sky co-star. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    just getting an average rating as it started off so slow. when it did get going (half way through) it was half decent and i do like dmx's philisophical manner in the parts he plays. interesting story but ultimately not enough to keep you interested or coming back for a 2nd viewing

    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.

    Good film, hard to watch at certain points though.
