Never Die Alone

2006-03-30 12:30

Never Die Alone follows the story of King David (DMX), a hard-boiled, stylish criminal who returns to his hometown seeking redemption but finding only violent death.

But he does not die alone...King David's final moments are spent with Paul (David Arquette) an aspiring journalist who knew him just a few minutes but upon whose life he would forever have an impact.

King David - half preacher, half Satan, and all street smarts - had recorded the story of his recent exploits on audiotape, leaving behind an often-poetic sermon on villainy and its consequences. The tapes reveal that the cycle of violence and retribution his actions have spawned has come back on him full circle, as he suspected it might all along.

What the critics are saying:

"There's something refreshing about a pulp drama that turns on the notion that redemption is a sucker's fantasy."
- Mark Holcomb, Village Voice

"DMX is the perfect actor for this stylized and often satisfying film adaptation of Donald Goines's novel."
- Elvis Mitchell, New York Times

"If you cut the expletives from Never Die Alone, it's unlikely that this updated blaxploitation flick would run more than 15 minutes."
- Manohla Dargis, Los Angeles Times

Rapper DMX oozes both menace and charm in this violent and stylish adaptation of the Donald Goines novel. A must for fans of "gangsta" culture.
