Above averageBy Flintsteel (42 reviews) from Newcastle-upon-Tyne , 13 Oct 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This is an above average film of a pimp turned rapper from the South.
The characters are well rounded, the main character 'D-JAY' showing his sensitive family side that I'm sure all pimps have hidden under the lime-green fur coat.
Seriously though, the music's not bad - the acting is great, and although seems quite low budget overall show's no gaps in production.
Please note - the scenes where recording takes place is nothing like the real world !
Worth a watch if you like 50 cent etc. avoid if you dislike swearing.

Hustle And Flow (2005)By a customer from London, England , 03 Nov 2007Although an obvious plot, this film shows the real life of a pimp, and none of this glamour you see in the music videos. Terence Howard for me delivered a convincing performance. I loved the soundtrack.
BrilliantBy a customer from Leeds, England , 31 Jul 2007This film is brilliant. Wasn't sure if the film had a main story line to begin with other than the way life is on the street but it pulls together a very good plot. The soundtrack is excellent to - you will be singing one of the main songs from it when you have watched it.
OkBy Chloe from Buckingham, England , 30 Jul 2007This film was decent and as a British American, I can say that it is accurate. And I did understand the language in this film which is not what some here like to call ebonix. It is American street talk. I guess anyone who tries to watch a film from another English speaking country that uses true to life slang may not understand the speech. I can't understand a word that poor Irishmen say. Anyway, the slang heightens the film but the plot overall is merely mediocre.
VERY GOOD FILMBy a customer from BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND , 18 Jun 2007YOU will not be disappointed. It actually surprised me. I expected it to be boring but there are great performances from the characters involved. A great movie!
