Classic DVD Review: DMX | Angel

I doubt even the rap dog's mama wants to sit through this exhaustive compilation.


This came out in 2001 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


MAIN COURSE: Everything you could want — and much, much more — from rap dog DMX.

Along with the 25-minute, semi-autobiographical mini-movie Angel, you get (take a deep breath, now): One More Road to Cross, a 40-minute recording-studio documentary; Survival of the Illest, 40 minutes of live footage from DMX’s first tour; Tales of X, a 10-minute mini-biography; nearly a dozen video clips; and the typical discography, photo gallery and Web links. SIDE DISHES: Thankfully, none. As it is, this disc delivers nearly three hours of content. FINAL VERDICT: The title movie is so bizarre — part morality play, part Thriller horror show — that it’s entertaining. And a few of the videos are OK. But three hours? I doubt even DMX’s mama wants to see this much of him.
