Much better than expected. Deon (played by 50 Cent) makes a real impression as the self-centered football star whose career is cut short by cancer. Plenty of sub-themes about self worth, family obligations, love vs. sex, the value of education and “The System.” Try not to notice the low budget aspects like the indoor game on what looks like Arena Football carpeting. I still have no idea how 50 Cent bulked up or bulked down for this part. No matter, it was very convincing.
