    Straight to the point: Its good, not great. But don't watch it. Buy it on DVD in a few months for a fiver.

    Anyway, it starts off portraying 50 Cent as a criminal gangster in deep trouble. He gets shot in the face and then he gets a flashback of his life, when he grows up from a kid onwards. Anyway, usual stuff. Bang bang. "Get off my turf" usual things.

    I can't really say much more. Its the same miniature story every 30mins in the movie.

    Like I said, buy it on DVD. Don't watch it in cinema.

    I hate his music and i hate the way hip hop glorifies a gangster lifestyle. You would have to pay me to sit through this

    It is too long - the storyline (although based on his real life) drags on a bit.. I found myself thinking a lot of the time 'get revenge already'.

    Was ok, but like the OP said definitely one to purchase for a fiver.

    If I do have to watch this in the cinema, I'm gonna wait a few weeks.

    I can just imagine the first few weeks, "gangstaZ" from everywhere flocking in their numbers with their "crew innit" and shouting - "yo dat was sick yo" :D

    Probably one for me to miss.

    I wouldnt waste my time watching it tbh, his "music" annoys me so i can't imagine what 2 hours of his life story would be like

    Haha, they were my thoughts too. Still, I've an open mind, if I hear enough people react positively to it (by enough I probably mean several million), I may well go and check it out. Highly doubt it though.

    I have to laugh at what Mark Kermode said the other day, "Fiddy is in trouble as he can't even act as himself" lol.
