Okay, so while watching it I thought “I thought this would be better” but I didn’t think it was horrible. After sleeping on it and thinking about it some more, it was pretty fucking terrible. 50 Cent is actually pretty dorky looking—he wasn’t hot until the VERYLAST scene. I liked that “Eko” from Lost was in it, but his character sucked. WTF was up with the one dude who was so totally a black ripoff of Marlon Brando playing the Godfather? It was seriously annoying. And the girl he fell in love with—PUHLEASE. She had way too much class to want to go with him, who when asked says “I’m a gangsta.”
I fell asleep JUSTBEFORE a naked shower fight scene in prison, apparently there were a lot of dicks flapping around but I missed it and Adam wouldn’t rewind it (we always have to go back for tits, so WTF?). I also love how they say that this movie ISN’T based on his life, YET his character (“Marcus”… in real life his name is Curtis) was also shot 9 times, once in the cheek, was a rapper, etc etc. I’d say it was pretty closely tied to his life or at least what he perceived his life to be. And is it just me… or is it creepy how he talks without moving his teeth or lips? I realize it’s an acquired skill from the jaw wiring, but gosh.
And finally, my favorite part of the whole movie, where we all went “EEEW!!!” including Adam: “Marcus” says to his woman, “Feel the fragment?” (in real life 50 Cent still has a piece of the bullet that went through his face lodged in his jawbone) When his girlfriend reaches into his mouth to feel it, he sucked on her finger. It was NASTY.
