This film surprised me, I didn't think it was going to be as good as it was. Mr. Howard really has the talent to do other dialects that not all actors can do.

The performances are accomplished, but the real star of Hustle & Flow is Brewer, a playwright who has written and directed a few other movies but who is effectively making a breathtaking national debut here. Full Review

The best thing Hustle & Flow has going for it is Terrence Howard's powerful performance. Full Review

This disdain for women is not incidental to the film; it is integral to the fantasy Mr. Brewer is selling, which is that pimping is not as hard as it looks. Full Review
David Edelstein
Howard might be a major actor. His DJay, though, is a major character in search of a major author. Full Review

It's more of an urban fairy tale, a surprisingly charming story that -- in certain sections -- almost crystallizes into the sweetness of a Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland musical. Full Review
