I just watched this film and most say its one of the most over the top gangsta films ever. The first thing i realised was how bad 50 cent is as an actor, the guy has no facial expressions just the same face for 2 and a half hours. If someone says this film depcits his life, wrong!!! if it did he would be known for being a drug dealer rather than a rapper. Its over done its taken bits from other gangsta films and tried to base it around his life. its got a bit of scarface and a lot of goodfellas in it. A film like this gloryfies being a gangsta.
i must say though it is watchable as it has a lot of good parts to it. But overall i saw this film as an over the top less realistic new york version of boyz in the hood. But its a kinda alright way of spending 2 hours, (if u aint got nothing to do) not a film i would watch in the cinema.
i give it a 5/10, decent film.
