The story of the life and career of the legendary rhythm and blues musician Ray Charles, from his humble beginnings in the South, where he went blind at age seven, to his meteoric rise to stardom during the 1950s and 1960s.
In the scene where Marcus says "Crack meant money, money meant power, power meant war," a blue 1965 4 door Impala drives up to 3 guys standing on the side walk. when the scene switches to showing those guys being shot the car changes to a Blue 1964 4 door Impala. See more »
I have nothing personal against 50 Cent, don't buy his records, kind of
view him as a flash in the pan. But after being saturated with his
face for the past 3 years I figured, why not see what
all the hype is about...yeah his "music" is bubble-gum wannabe gangster
rap that couldn't hold a candle to the originators of the genre...(i.e.
N.W.A.,Schooly-D,etc.) The music will be forgotten in 5 years time...so
maybe the movie will give him some validity, let's see if he can act.
BAD MOVE, this guy makes DMX look like Sidney Poitier. The whole movie
is the classic template, just plug in a one gear, multi-millionaire
so-called rap artist. It just wasn't entertaining, I wasn't expecting
the Godafther, but jeez...what a waste. So many other movies, steeped
in hood reality have delivered far more...Menace 2 Society and Boyz N'
The Hood all the way back to Cooley High. Hopefully the relatively
dismal box office receipts will keep this guy out of the movies so he
can concentrate on selling dull, bland pop music to the mouth breathing
masses who hail him as the king of the streets.
