Never Die Alone | 2004 | R | - 8.8.10

A man who was a hard-boiled drug dealer (DMX) returns to his home after ten years seeking redemption. But those he left behind are not happy to see him and do everything they can to prevent him. He meets a writer (David Arquette) along the way, and when he's killed, the writer decides to document the last few hours of his life and find out why he was killed. Also with Clifton Powell, Mike Ealy, Jennifer Sky, Reagon Gomez-Preston, Paige Hurd and Rhoda Jordan. Directed by Ernest R. Dickerson. [1:22]

SEX/NUDITY 8 - A man and a woman have sex: they are both nude (we see the man's bare back and buttocks and her bare legs and shoulders), the man thrusts on top of the woman, her legs wrapped around his waist, and they both moan. A man and a woman have sex, and he thrusts on top of her (we see his bare back and buttocks) while she lies limp beneath him (we see her bare shoulders and legs). A man forces a woman to have sex (they are both clothed): we see him thrusting from behind and she cries (it is payment for drugs). A woman climbs on top of a man in bed, she kisses down his chest and apparently performs oral sex on him (we see his face and hear him moaning). A man and a woman kiss: she's in a bra and panties and he's bare-chested, she climbs on top of him in bed and she kisses up his chest. Two women nuzzle and kiss a man. Two women are in bed with a man, and two women are in a bathtub with a man (we see the man's bare chest). Two women massage a man's shoulders. A man talks about making a woman his, and a man flirts with a woman and admires her as she walks away. A woman sings seductively on stage, three women in bikinis lie around a pool and a man admires them, and many women wear bikinis on a beach. A young woman wears a short skirt and a short top revealing cleavage, bare abdomen and bare thighs, and she leans into a car where a man sits and they talk and flirt briefly. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals bare shoulders and cleavage, and a woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage. We see a man's bare back while he's showering.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A man breaks a car window, hits the driver in the face with a gun, pulls him out of the car, then stabs him in the stomach with a knife; the wounded man picks up an ice pick and stabs another man in the eye, and one man lies on the ground with blood on his clothes and street. A man in a bathtub is shot several times, and he slumps into the water, which fills with blood. A man in a car is shot (we see blood and matter splatter on the window), a young woman is shot in the stomach and is thrown through the air (we see her blood covered clothes as she quivers and dies), a man jumps on the hood of a car and shoots the driver through the windshield (blood splatters), and a man shoots another man repeatedly in the stomach and chest. A man holds a gun to a man's temple, and another man shoots the man with the gun (we see blood splatter). A man is shot in the arm (we see blood on his clothing). A man hits a woman, she falls to the floor, he kicks her, her boy jumps on the man's back, and the man hits the boy in the face with a bottle that breaks and cuts him on the cheek. We see a man with a swollen and bloody eye where he was stabbed with an ice pick -- he's moaning. A man beats another man up, the man is on the floor, the other man kicks him repeatedly, holds a gun on him and kicks him some more (we see blood on the floor around the man). A man forces a woman to have sex (they are both clothed): we see him thrusting from behind and she cries (it is payment for drugs). A woman injects herself with a drug, she thrashes on the floor gagging and foaming at the mouth, her young son tries to rouse her, and she dies. We see many images of dead people with bloody wounds and in pools of blood. A woman lies dead with a needle in her arm. A body is put into a cardboard box and pushed into an incinerator for cremation at a funeral home. A man hits a man in the face and he falls unconscious. A man hits a young woman in the face and yells at her, and a man hits a woman in the face (she falls to the floor). Men threaten each other with guns in several scenes, and a man holds a gun on a cab driver. A man tells a man to kill two men. A man lies dead in a coffin. A man has a large scar on his cheek. A man grabs a young woman by the arm and shoves her into a car. We see a bullet hole scar on a man's back. A woman vomits (we see the goo and hear her gagging).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
