Reviews
ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review Paid In Full, which purports to be based on a true story, falters somewhat in the last act. The violent climax has an auspicious outcome that's hard to buy without more information and the ugliest side of street drugs--addiction--is barely broached. Finally, the film's voice-over epilogue is annoyingly vague... But the film does such a fine job of engulfing you in its world and allying you with its characters' choices, good and ill, that its shortcomings are remembered only as an afterthought.

Review The movie is ambitious, has good energy and is well-acted, but tells a familiar story in a familiar way. The parallels to Brian De Palma's Scarface are underlined by scenes from that movie which are watched by the characters in this one. The trajectory is well-known: poverty, success, riches, and then death or jail. This plot describes countless lives, and is so common because the laws against drugs do such a good job of supporting the price and making the business so lucrative. The difference between drugs and corporate swindles, obviously, is that with drugs the profits are real.

Quotes
Keith Cassidy, Miami Herald An intelligent crime drama...
Desson Howe, The Journal News The direction has a fluid, no-nonsense authority, and the performances by Harris, Phifer and Cam'ron seal the deal.
Megan Turner, New York Post Rings true, from the smooth dialogue to the unaffected performances of the central actors.
