Most people will remember Hustle & Flow from its Oscar winning soundtrack (You know it's hard out there for a pimp), but the film itself is a musical journey. From the continuous beat that drives Dee Jay to make his music, to the hard-hitting storytelling lyrics of his songs, to the pure awe-inspiring emotion of a gospel spiritual sung in a quiet church - this movie is music. Terrence Howard's remarkable performance as Dee Jay, a memphis pimp with a yearning to be a hip-hop musician, easily overshadowing any of his most recent film roles. Taraji P. Henson also gives an outstanding performance as Nola, Dee Jay's former trick who is now a pregnant mother - and eventual singer. Other performances by Taryn Manning, Elise Neal, Anthony Anderson, DJ Qualls, Issac Hayes and Ludacris are all solid, and fit well into this story of struggle for a dream despite circumstances. You'll be singing the songs from this film for days.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
