In the football scene filmed indoors at Van Andel Arena in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, the field is actually a 50-yard long field that is played off as being a regulation-size 100-yard field, evident by the yard numbers on the wide shot showing a 40-yard line. The Grand Rapids Rampage, a former Arena Football League team, use to play their home games in the arena and it can only fit a 50-yard field inside of it. See more »
This movie should have been given more credit. I enjoyed it, this goes to show you can't always listen to what people say. Watch it and rate it for yourself! Awesome job and the cast was perfect. This should have went to theaters, I know they would have made more money. I hope 50 cent comes out with more movies, I sure will support him! They fact that this man lost so much weight just for a role, shows his dedication and passion to break into the acting role. For anyone that has followed his career knows that this is a BIG difference to the type of roles he is used to playing. I'm excited to see what else 50 cent has planned for 2012! Let's GOO!!!
