Great Movie
18 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie got a lot of bad ratings from many reviewers. I saw the movie recently and thought it was great. It wasn't an Oscar winning movie but it got me on the edge of my seat. The movie is very similar to Eminems 8 Mile, as in it shows little reference to the artists life.The name is different but it shows some similarty to Curtis '50 Cent' Jacksons life.The movie has action,drama,gang fights,romance, and a whole lot more. This is definitely a movie you should go see when you want to see a good movie. Some may say 50 cent is a sell out with a movie and a video game coming out in the same month,but I personally think he is doing a good job. A great movie to see if your a 50 cent or rap fan.
