Get rich or die tryin'

When I first seen this I loved Curtis "50cent" Jackson and I listened to his music at the time. This was a great story but I do not recommend for anyone under the age 18!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (5 ):

In this mythic, formulaic, and utterly earnest movie, everybody loves Marcus. He appears repeatedly in the sort of elegant, evocative filtered-light frames favored by director Jim Sheridan and DP Declan Quinn. This visual softening underlines Marcus' fundamental decency and devotion to his mother.
