Movie Info

Jimmy Colón is an NYPD counter-terrorism agent who has infiltrated one of the major New York mosques in the South Bronx, and is living under the name “Farouq Bin Al-Hamed”. He tries to ensnare the head Iman - Brother Nazim - by convincing the younger and more susceptible congregants to embrace Radical Jihadism - while plotting their arrest during attempted acts of terror. In a twist of fate - Jimmy finds himself developing a relationship with one of the newest congregants - a heroin addict named Alistair Holmgren - who has a dark past and nothing to lose. As their friendship intensifies, Jimmy must decide whether or not to complete the mission at his chief’s behest or lead himself and the mosque into self-destruction.

Critic Reviews for Paradise City

All Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • A tough, issue-driven urban tale that thrusts itself into the belly of the beast when confronting raw nerve topics such as Islamophobia, terrorism and violence. That said, the film's ambition and noble messaging can't quite make up for its shortcomings.

    January 8, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Good indie crime dramas are hard to come by. Paradise City is not perfect but stands far out from the pack. Don't miss this one.

    December 5, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • "Paradise City" is an ambitious, epic crime drama that punches way above its indie label.

    December 4, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • There's enough here that you can see the movie that might have been. But "Paradise City" gets in its own way so often that it falls well short of paradise, or coherence for that matter.
