Six people were actually held prisoner in the scene where Ace and a friend were bundled into the apartment by Calvin's accomplices who demanded the combination. All six were shot in the head when the extortion attempt failed and three died, including Faison's aunt. The real life Calvin, Kevin Clark was not murdered in a revenge killing by Rico, as is depicted in the film. Kevin Clark and his accomplices, Ronald Timmons and Henry Bolden were all arrested soon after the incident and are serving 112 years - to life sentences. See more »

I was scanning through the channels one night and stopped on this film. Man, was I glad. It's nice to see the filmmakers trust the audience and their film by not cluttering up scenes with music. The silence was golden. Great direction, great acting and great music! I could tell this was based on a true story. It was so edgy and gritty it could not have been made up. The hardest part of making a true story work is keeping it real, they did that. I recognized all the actors, some one needs to hire Cam'ron he was great. I don't think you can compare this with New Jack City, I liked New Jack City but it was allot softer the Paid In Full. I could feel the tension in some of the scenes, it was powerful. I might buy this one.
