Editorial Reviews

Hot stars Mekhi Phifer (8 MILE, SHAFT, TV's ER) and Wood Harris (REMEMBER THE TITANS) team up in an edgy, hard-hitting film with a slammin' soundtrack! Stuck in a nowhere job, Ace (Harris) is a restless teenager who envies the expensive cars, flashy clothes, and high-rolling lifestyle of his drug-dealing friends. Then when he sees his chance, Ace makes the move that suddenly changes his life! Drawn by the seductive lure of easy money in the illicit Harlem underground, he uses his skills to quickly take control of the streets and seize all the power than comes with it! Also starring rap star Cam'ron (WOO) and Chi McBride (GONE IN 60 SECONDS, TV's BOSTON PUBLIC) -- you don't want to miss this gripping look at chasing the American dream ... from the wrong side of the tracks!

I can understand many of the bad reviews that I have read surrounding this film. Many have refered to this movie as a typical hood film and it is; but, at a level that captures the realm of economic prosperity (due to the crack-cocaine epidemic) that saturated ghettos everywhere. Unlike New Jack City, it was more realistic. It opened the project doors and windows for America to see.

It was based upon a true story, and presented cameo of each of the 3 actual hustlers (drug-dealers)that conquered Harlem in the mid 80's. Excellent film.

In order to really be able to appreicate the film at a height, I think that it is beneficial to have some knowledge of that time period ... and maybe even some knowledge of the hood.

Wood Harris, Mekhi Phifer and Cam`Ron brought eighties back to life for me in this film. This film is almost like watching a documentary. I was sixteen in 86 and living in Harlem. I remember cell phones the size of bricks and beepers with no read outs. This was the age when only doctors and drug dealers carried beepers. I remember when "The Rooftop" was Harlem's hottest club. And if you had the dough Dapper Dan could make you a Gucci or Lois Vuiton jacket or suit. When Timbs were strictly an "uptown" thing. You could go to the club or "The Pro Rucker" (a famous harlem B-ball court where summer league games were held), and see these cats upclose and in person. Ghetto superstars Alpo (Rico), Richie Rich (Mitch) and yes the likable character AZ (Ace). Now remember im only sixteen broke and working at Mickey D's. So I don't know the story behind the glam. Just what I see and ofcourse the ghetto gossip. I say gossip because in the hood by the time the story reaches you, "he had a 38" some how manifests itself into "he had two chrome UZI's". I also remember the late model European whips. The truck jewelry and the wads of cash these dudes carried around as pocket change. I went to school with Alpo's lil sista. She had a gucci bag for every day of the week and wore a mink coat in the winter. It was crazy. In the Seventies Harlem belonged to Nicky Barnes. The eighties belonged to Alpo (Rico), Richie Rich (Mitch) and AZ (Ace). In closing, this movie isn't quite "Scarface". But a great gangster flick none the less, based on a true story as told by AZ.

One of the reviewers from D.C. said two things I want to comment on:
*First he said in d.c. they weren't driving saab's, well in NJ and NY, everyone was trying to get their hands on a saab. Saab's and Audi's were the thing, and even volvo's were making a come back. Ballers or drug dealers had them, or pushed to buy'em.
*Second, the clothes were also on point. Who ever picked the clothes, etc. were so on point it was pathetic. Back in the day if you weren't making money, that's what you wore.
And when they were all making money, they dressed just like that. Girls were wearing Fendi this, and Gucci that, and guys were dressing back then. No Tee Shirts, and jersey's or army fatigues like they do now with $15-$20,000 in their pockets.
That movie made me cry in the theater and thereafter. I really had to pull it together. It reminded me of my brother. My brother was Mitch, all the way. From the clothes, and everything else. It was exactly like that for us here in NJ.
There wasn't one scene in that movie that differed. Even when their friend turned on them and got jealous, it was the exact same way. As a matter of fact, Mitch died in the same manner that my brother died, at the hands of his boy. His own friend that he was there for. That's just how it was, with street codes, and crazies that went against the street codes, and those who lived by them. Everybody made money except the crackheads and dope feins. Yep, that's how it was.
And as usual it ended when you had enough of it, and you had enough when someone close to you died and it scorned your heart. (although some went to jail or were killed.)
Paid In Full was right on time, and the song was the establishing touch, as we all said we were getting, "Paid in full."

The one thing I appriciate about this movie, is it's feel to realisim, and the feel of old harlem hood movies. It's not another State Property, Baby Boy or some horsecrap gangsta movie.

This movie is about Ace(Wood Harris) and his best friend Mitch(Mekhi Phifer) who get good buisness going out, but Mitch is put behind bars when he tries to get a nusience off his block. So Ace makes his move, and makes everyone happy becoming the top dog around.

But in the world of Harlem drug dealers, there's always a load of backstabbing snakes filled with envy. They try to get their way by kidnapping, jacking, and murder. And this movie tells that in a very balievable way.

This movie is highly underratted, and should be seen by everyone in the intrest of hood, or gang movies. Even Cam'ron's preformance is nice too. This movie delievers with actors who can act, and not crap like State Property run by rappers.

peace

This indeed has to be the best inner city gangsta flick since Menace II Society, Clockers and New Jack City. The fact that Damon Dash had anything to do with it, makes this even more astonishing. Anyway I've been a big Wood Harris and Mekhi Phifer fan for years so it was good to see these brothers hook up. Cam'ron did well playing his part eventhough I thought his part didn't take a whole lot of skill to do. Anyway, I enjoyed the film very much and would recommend this to anyone who loves inner city gangsta movies. The problems I had with the film were small and minor. Like those up to date cell phones in a pre-minute cell phone era (1985-1986). Man, cell phones then were the size of standard size 900 MHZ cordless telephones. Dem joints were huge back in those days. As far as the convertible SAAB's go, well let's just say that ballers here in DC weren't pushing them joints until 1989-1990. I didn't even know Saab's made them joints that early. And some of the clothes definitely didn't look early 80's to me except for the kicks. However, the music was bangin and to see Doug E. Fresh perform along with hearing Kid Capri, and of course at the very beginning, hearing the GOD of rap, Rakim rap "Paid In Full", well what else is there to say. LL may be the G.O.A.T. in record sales amongst his peers from that day, but we all know Rakim is the G.O.A.T. when it comes to being a lyricist.
