You know when you wish to descibe a film to a friend,who hasn't seen it yet,you usually start by outlining the plot,as you understand it,the perhaps commenting on the actors,and so on and so on. How on earth you do this with a film that is so toe-curlingly and stomach-churningly bad is another matter. The plot which is supposedly semi-autobiographical seems to be saying that murder and drug-dealing is an acceptable way to music stardom. That is bad enough,but when it is cliché- ridden, boring nastiness that is just too much. The star (Ha.Ha)50 Cents has the screen presence of a plastic toilet seat and mumbles his incomprehensible way through the film,which is so predictable from start to finish with all the familiar stereotypical South American drug barons,shootings and small-time hangers on we would expect.
Some of the supporting cast,who tried hard to make something out of the terrible script must have been dying with embarrassment to associated with such a load of nonsense and if they have any pride will deny any involvement on their C.V's. A film to be avoided at all cost
