Goofs

When Marcus gets his Mercedes Benz S500, he starts playing his Window Shopper song. He wasn't a rapper back then. This is not an actual goof, as the tape Marcus was listening to was his demo tape, and he was in the car to drive to a meeting with a producer that was going to listen to his demo. See more »

Quotes

Marcus: Crack meant money, money meant power and power meant war. We shot the Columbians, the Columbians shot us.

Surprisingly good
7 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. At first I didn't think it was going to be a big deal and I was very skeptical when I was at the movies but I did the right thing by giving it a chance. 50 Cent's acting is surprisingly good considering he has never really acted before. The plot was well thought out and there were a lot of parts that were emotional; for instance when his mother was killed and he then had to grow up by himself. I read some comments on here that though expressed personal opinion were really hateful, but I guess its expected when a rapper makes a movie. I like 50 cent as a rapper, maybe I am biased, but I really do think this movie was good.
