This was fantastic! Great acting, great story. Emotionally moving. You can drop the "50 Cent" Mr. Jackson - Great writing, great acting! I can't believe this has been rated so low by others, did they actually watch the whole thing? I almost didn't watch this movie because of the rating but I'm sure glad that I did. I think this movie deserves 6.5 overall rating so I'm giving it a 10 to bring it up to par. Curtis Jackson has come a long way in his acting ability and should be rewarded for it along with his writing skills. I was never a big fan of his music (I'm just an old white boy :)), but the acting is very real and believable. I hope to see more movies like this from him.
