In 'Get Rich or Die Trying' Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson plays Marcus, a drug dealer from the street who wants to get out of the thug-life and be a rap star. This movie is supposed to be about 50 Cent and his true-life struggle to be a success.
This film was good in that it seemed to parallel the life of 50 Cent. From what I know, it is fairly accurate to a lot of what he went through. My problem is that this plot has been done and redone. A story about a poor ghetto kid trying to be heard, clean up his life and make it as a rapper. Have we not seen this before ('8 Mile', 'Hustle and Flow', etc.)? Do not get me wrong, this is a good movie in its own right. However, the plot is unoriginal and very predictable; even if it is true to life. I would only recommend this to big 50 Cent fans or someone who has not seen '8 Mile' or 'Hustle and Flow'.
