Storyline

Paper Soldiers follows an overeager burglar named Shawn (Kevin Hart) through the ups and downs of his short, stressful career. Already on parole but faced with the power being turned off and his child forced to eat nothing but cereal, Shawn convinces an older thief (Derrick "Capone" Lee) to train him. He soon finds himself caught between his angry girlfriend (Tiffany Withers), his incompetent would-be-criminal friends, and a neighborhood sociopath with a hair-trigger temper (Beanie Sigel).

Trivia

Was originally written as a drama. Some of the more serious scenes were filmed but cut from the final print. Such as, Shawn's son finding his gun and pointing it at his mother, Shawn crashing during the chase, and another scene with Shawn crying over the turn of events. See more »

User Reviews

 
Works more on the comedy side than drama.
28 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Damon Dash of Roc-A-Fella fame has directed this funny, yet semi drama. About a Crook(Kevin Hart) trying to make in life by robbing people.Then along comes he's buddies who want in too. All of them mean on harm except for Beanie Sigel's role.

Now one problem is that the movie is indeed funny,but add realistic drama that dosen't fit in very well. Even the violence is a little bit over the top at times to reach realism. Kevin Hart is indeed one of the comics America has to look for. Just look at Scary Movie 3 for example, but he can indeed act for in case of drama that he had to do. Beanie Sigel is perfect for this role, whether he was acting or not, he owned it. And Jay-Z & Damon Dash have hilarious cameos.
