Tupac, you can sleep easy. Richard Pryor, watch out.
September 1, 2009
Sheridan's surface vividness is applied around a vacuum
March 1, 2007
People behind the movie will no doubt get rich, but it's a shame they didn't try harder to make a better picture.

50 Cent dies for our sins in disappointing screen debut.

July 15, 2006
...a distinctly tedious piece of work.

Marcus sells dope. Marcus buys a gun. Marcus buys a microphone. Marcus goes to prison. Marcus gets shot. Marcus makes a movie about his life that no one goes to see.

Embora limitado como ator, 50 Cent tem carisma para segurar o filme, que acaba falhando não em função do rapper, mas de seu roteiro convencional que soa como pálida imitação de 8 Mile.
| Original Score: 2/5

A better film than "8 Mile". An impressive debut for the coin-coined music superstar.
| Original Score: 3/5
January 22, 2006
Its real danger is that it sets a precedent for the director; if the price is right he's on board.
| Original Score: 1/5

You feel this film straining to be another 8 Mile, even as it never gets into the head of its central character
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

If it's a rap-related rags-to-riches flick you want, check out 8 Mile or Hustle & Flow, both of which are ten times better than this.

I don't feel totally satisfied with the emotional payoff, perhaps because it's so hard to associate with the characters, despite the fine performances. Fans, of course will love it.

Turns out Eminem is a better faux-gangsta than 50 Cent. Now run along and bust yo dope rhymes at a Bat Mitvah before heading back to your 18-bedroom mansion in Farmington, CT. You're so street, Curtis.

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is utterly lacking in charisma ... His complete lack of presence is deadening to the film because he's in almost every scene.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 6, 2005
The film is a completely disheveled mess, limping from scene to scene with all the urgency of a snail taking his morning constitutional.

Here's a guy that's sold crack, cocaine, robbed, stolen, and murdered and made millions rapping about it. And this is supposed to be the hero? Wait to rent it.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

50 Cent digs deep. He just doesn't get there enough to demand that we fully commit to this tale of a tight-lipped drug-dealer-turned-rapper.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
November 16, 2005
A preposterous rags-to-riches story with a flat lead character that it's determined to raise to the level of a deity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 14, 2005
It's a quasi-authentic, simplistic, crime-and-rap story that become just romanticized, graphic gangsta violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
November 14, 2005
...Too few answers as to how 50 Cent became who he is.
