From The Golden Age Of “In Da Hood” Movies - ‘Paid In Full’ Coming To Blu-Ray 9/24

Paid in Fill

To be honest, I’m trying to remember if I saw this when it came out. Or is it just me?

I’m talking about director Charles Stone III’s urban drama, Paid in Full, released by Miramax back in the fall of 2002. That was a busy year for Stone who also had, that very same year, the very popular and very successful Drumline.

As for Paid In Full, it was released at the tail end of the onslaught of “in da hood” dramas, but I don’t recall the film making any sort of impact back then.

Starring  Mekhi Phifer and Wood Harris the film is about “Ace (played by Harris)... a restless teenager who envies the high-rolling lifestyle of his drug-dealing friends. When he is overcome by the desire for expensive cars and flashy clothes, he makes a move that will change his life forever. Seduced by the allure of easy money in the illicit Harlem underground, he uses his skills to quickly take control of the streets and seize all the power that comes with it."

If that doesn’t jog your memory, then you’ll soon have chance to see it again, as good as it’s ever looked, when Lionsgate Home Entertainment releases Paid in Full on blu-ray DVD on Sept. 24.

So far no features or special extras have been announced for the DVD and I don’t think any will be included with it.
