Chedly Ouni’s review published on Letterboxd:
I've always loved hood movies, rags to riches stories and the inevitable falling down. Violence Begets more Violence, Greed corrupts a man's soul and blinds it from the right path. there are no gangsters in Paradise but it's never too late to redeem yourself.
This highly stylized picture unexpectedly delivers its righteous message through a not so impressive story but manages to stay entertaining throughout it's whole runtime. The two leads' acting is top notch, especially DMX. I loved every frame of it and the music choices where spot on. Highly recommended.
