An easy watch, not particularly great by any means; it's no Straight outta compton but but it's an easy sit through and if you enjoy Fifty's music i think you'll like it.

For a rapper based movie with some truth that was seriously stretched out the movie was quite entertaining. I think Terrence Howard appearance in this movie was what possibly made more entertaining. 50 cent did come from nowhere, got shot, almost died, was flat broke and this captures his story. Hollywood threw their dust on it as well.

Bad movie. While Jackson's real-life story is actually really inspiring, its depiction on screen is too formulaic and dull to really recommend, also featuring weak performances, Bryant and Jackson delivering two good ones.

Thought it would be like "Notorious"-Biggie Smalls. Not even close! Do you know what REALLY made "50" famous? "In tha club". Period! Without that hit? He would have had to go back to selling crack! And they didn't play "In tha club" once! Notorious played "Hypnotize"-his go to song-beginning to end. Get rich die or die trying? Two stars at best. Disappointing. Focused too much on his life as a thug and not enough on his life as a rapper. And consistently played the SAME songs which-incidentally-were NOT even his top hits. Rent another movie instead!

It's not an action movie like any other movie nowadays but it goes deep into the life of someone who's trying to make it on there own the best way that they can... Watched it the first time and really enjoyed it deserves a better rating from this website

Get Rich Or Die Tryin' is a pretty decent drama film about the life of a gangster who wants to become a rapper, and that tries everything to become one. This film did receive very negative reviews, and I think the reason why was because how misleading the cast was, and how dragged out the film felt sometimes. However, if you are fans of the 2002 Eminem film "8 Mile", then you will most likely enjoy this drama film.

This film centers around the life of Marcus (50 Cent) whose mother was brutally murdered when he was at a young age. Now forced to live in a basement with his grandparents, he entirely tries to hide the fact that he's a drug dealer. Because of the drug deals, Marcus is fully respected by the neighborhood, and a thug that gives him power like no other. Even though he has money, respect, friends, and a upcoming baby, he still wants to be a successful rapper.

I still liked how the film turned out, and I enjoyed the film. Little messy, it's a pretty decent film considering it was produced by "MTV Films".

Better than I was expecting 50 Cent does a good acting job, Would of thought it would have done better at the box office, A good little film to add to your collection.

It's honestly a decent film. How it received such low ratings is beyond me. The acting isn't amazing and the story line isn't the best but it was watchable and deserved at the very least 6/10 stars.

Curtis 50 cent Jackson appears to have some acting chops. His story here almost looks like that it had potential, but when I took a good look at this feature, I thought, "Umm, yeah, he looks childish. I can't take him serious enough." It's a problem which allot of music artists have in trying to take on a movie role in the past, and still trying to do today! It doesn't work as much as they want it to, because it's not for them!
As for one scene which I called bullcrap on, is the one where that gangbanger pulled out a gun as fast as the flash, and shot the cops in their car! Uh uh, c'mon! That cannot happen in real life, seriously!?
This just felt like another missed opportunity!

Not near as good as when I was a young rebellious teenager. Now it's just trash.
