I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I thought 50 Cent did an outstanding acting job. I initially thought his acting role was typical for what you would expect from a musical artist turned actor but by the end of the movie I was completely sold on 50 Cent the actor. His commitment was obvious as the dramatic weight loss he went through showed his seriousness and commitment to the acting craft. I honestly didn't believe he could pull this acting career off but after seeing this flick I have no doubt he can be as successful in acting as he decides he want to be. Once again outstanding acting job by 50 Cents and the rest of the crew. Would definitely watch a 50 Cent movie in the future. Highly recommended.
