Who cares?
22 May 2006 | by SnapsnbitesSee all my reviews

Few redeeming qualities here.

This film is a cheap, brainless waste of time and money glorifying a character you care nothing about from scene 1. As a protagonitst, 50 is very dull and unremarkable. The story of his life was enough to put me to bed twice. It took me 3 tries to get through this movie, and I can't say I'm any better for having seen it. I still have no interest in his music, or anything he does.

Pop Icons shouldn't have movies made about them until, at least 10 years after their death. 10 years from now, who the hell is going to care about 50 Cent? For that matter, who the hell cares about him now?
