Movie Reviews

One Of The Best
dalefl | Here | 03/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've bought many highlight DVDs from NFL films and rarely has it lived up to my expectations. This is without a doubt the best NFL highlight DVD I've ever bought. Each section deals with a different subject. My personal favorite is "Intimidators" which deals with the meanest, baddest, hardest hitting players of all time making some of the meanest, baddest, hardest hits of all time. For a real treat watch Bednarik take Gifford's head off in slow mo.
As a BALTIMORE Colt fan it was great to see the bits on Mackey, Moore, Unitas, etc. The clip of Mackey running over 10 guys on the way to the end zone is included here and I've only seen that on 1 other DVD. The clips of Sayers are priceless but all the great running backs are here. There's also a great part where they ask players to name the best play of their careers and then show those plays in slow mo. If there is an NFL films worthy of 5 stars this is it."

"NFl's the greatest players and coaches is a great release from NFL films, much better than the dissapointing Greatest super bowl moments dvd. The feature runs just over 2 hours long and is broken up into 12 chapters. Here are some of the DVD highlights.

This chapter discusses the meanest men in pro football history. Defensive players such as Dick Butkus, Ronnie Lott, Dick "Night Train" Lane, Doug Atkins, Deacon Jones, and Jack Lambert are discussed. Offensive intimadators such as Jim Brown, Earl Campbell, and John Mackey are also covered.

I think you can guess what this chapter is about. Otto Graham, Bart Starr, and Joe Montana are covered.

Players that brought something new to the game and revolonized the game. Don Hutson, Larry wilson, and Fran Tarkenton covered.

many great running backs covered here. Great highlights of Gale Sayers.

Covers the greatest coaches and executives in NFL history. George Halas, Art Rooney, Paul Brown, Don Shula, vince lombardi,chuck knoll, and bill walsh are talked about.

Thoughout the DVD you will hear from the hall of famers themselves. Many more greats that i did not list above are also covered. Recommended DVD.

"Wow. If you like football and want to learn a lot, get this DVD. It is long and will provide you with a great education on the early days of the NFL. Most of the players and coaches I either saw or knew of; some I had never heard of. The old films were neat and added a lot. This is a must for true diehard NFL fans. Watch this with your Dad and Granddad; they'll probably have some stories to add in."
