Trivia

50 Cent weighed 160 pounds when he portrayed the cancer-stricken Deon. The rapper went through a nine-week liquid diet and went on a treadmill three hours a day, losing his entire muscular frame. He has gained more than 40 pounds back after filming wrapped. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Geeky Randy's summary
21 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

2011 drama about promising football running back 50 Cent and his unexpected fight with a deadly disease that plagues his senior year in college and chances at the NFL. The film opens with very poor acting—child-actors are always a longshot, and Lynn Whitfield's attempt at an overly proud mother just feels overdone compared to the realistic subtle emotions of Sanders, Heggins and even rapper 50 Cent in the lead role, who lost around 54 pounds for the part. And yes, while this movie has its flaws, and while one might assume this would've been a more successful film with a more commercial cast, there are some incredibly commendable creative choices in this very depressing story. What makes it so compelling are the characters' motivations, which are very different from the Hollywood cookie-cutter melodrama, but are just as interesting—a lot of the film's characters seem far more three-dimensional than what we're used to seeing nowadays. Very much a story about how the loved ones of an ill person can also suffer emotionally and financially. Director Van Peebles is great in the supporting role of the stepfather, who is loving but tries to live his dreams through his sick stepson.
