Never Die Alone

2

Pitched as being `Too shocking for UK cinemas' when the truth is more likely `Nobody cared much so it wasn't released theatrically', Ernest R Dickinson's overreaching gangster epic may have the ambition to aim higher than the average genre gibberish, but struggles so hard to be a modern-day Scarface that it may as well have called its lead Tony and been done with it. Dickerson shows moments of confident brutality and DMX, to be fair, does manage to convince that he's more than just a rapper who fancies having a pop at this lark, with a cold, calculating performance. If he thinks he can take Al, however, the badass is dreaming.
