Movie Summary

Director:
Ernest Dickerson
Released:
2004
Rating:
R
Never Die Alone is a film made in 2004, directed by Ernest R Dickerson and produced by Alessandro Camon. The movie evolved from the book written by Donald Goines. This film is a crime thriller set in the inner city of New York with an all-star cast. The main character of the film, King David (DMX), is a criminal and drug dealer returning to his home town from Los Angeles. He decides now is the perfect opportunity to settle a score with a rival drug dealer Lord Moon (Clifton Powell) and tie up some loose ends back at home. This film is action packed and full of experiences you'll never forget. Crazy scenes keep you on your toes while the plot thickens. People aren't who they say they are and their deceptions have consequences for everyone. This movie shows the pure power of addiction and how people will do anything to get what they need.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Primarily a riveting genre film that neatly exhibits the director's growing assurance -- Donald Goines would be proud.

  • 60

    Variety David Rooney

    Largely overcomes key cast weaknesses to deliver a jazzy, darkly textured rendering of the ghetto pulp of late African-American ex-con author Donald Goines.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times Manohla Dargis

    Played by DMX in a gravel-pit monotone and a near-total lack of affect, King David cuts an unremittingly tedious swath through Never Die Alone.
