He was more stereotypically black than I thought him to be. I thought he was going to be a booksmart educated (but not nerdy) kind of guy who would have ambitions other than murder or money once he was removed from the ghetto, getting himself no more in crime than he absolutely need to.
Anyone else feel the same way?
And I'd figure he'd have something he'd care about other than money (or he would relate to Michael less superficially). His ascent from streets to big house up in the hills was abrupt and happened fast. The backstory of him and his ex-girlfriend wasn't fleshed out really.
In the early trailer, he seemed like a decent guy, victim of his circumstance whereas Michael and Trevor should know better. Franklin was the kind of guy I wanted to root for in a world gone wrong, but all three are major league assholes. Michael is relateable and Trevor has a charm beneath his craziness, but I found Franklin a bit bland and unlikable
