Never die alone!
on 7 March 2005
i brought this film, merely because i was looking for a DMX film, as I'm a big fan. This was all that I could find that i hadn't seen, and sounded quite good. So i brought it and watched it, and what a choice! DMX really exels as King David, this is easily his best role, and proves he is one of the few rappers that can act.
Basically, King David (DMX) ran away from his hood. At the beginning of the film, he returns to this hood. Before long, he is atacked by two guys. A white writer takes him to hospital, where he dies. But then he is confronted by the doctor, who tells him King David has left him everything. David also told the writer that he had a son somewhere, and he would him to locate him. Among all of his things, is a collection of audio cassets, which king david has recorded, telling us about his life. The rest of the film is basically the cassets, king david narrates while we watch. The story also follows the guy who murdered him, and at the end it's all brought together with a big twist that you probably wont see coming.
Overall, this film kicks ass, so go get it!
