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.
*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."
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.
