First, let me start by saying I have watched a lot of movies with 50 Cent either starring in or having a supporting role, in the last five years; beginning with "Get Rich or Die Trying'" (2005). Always hoping he would get better or quit. Surprisingly, "Gun" kept me in my seat until the end. That's what I look for in a good movie. And what's even more surprising is the fact that the story was written by 50 Cent. I would recommend this movie. Definitely not Oscar material, but more than watchable. The twist, which is somewhat predictable, was well played out and would have come as more of a treat if it wasn't given away in almost every description of Val Kilmer's role in the movie. Almost didn't watch this because 50 Cent is on the cover, but glad I did.
