50 Cent’s “Things Fall Apart” Trailer Leaves Us Wanting Less (Video)

Would you pay to watch this football movie staring Curtis Jackson, a.k.a. 50 Cent?  I sure as hell wouldn’t!

Allow me to start off by saying that the storyline for “Things Fall Apart” is actually quite compelling.  Deon Barnes, played by 50 Cent, is a promising young college football player playing for Michigan, but his national championship and professional aspirations are derailed when he is diagnosed with cancer.  However, Barnes attempts to overcome all odds by working his way back into the line-up through hard work and perseverance.

Along with an interesting storyline, we’ll also credit 50 Cent for losing all that weight to play the role of a cancer-stricken Barnes, but that is just about as far as our praise for this film will go.

I’m not quite sure if it is the cheesy graphics, or the directing skills of Mario Van Peebles, but after taking one look at this trailer you will understand exactly what I am talking about.
