Movie Reviews

Real football action
rock | Ptown | 05/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"People have been critical of this film, but I'd like to talk about those of us who have played the game, been in the programs, and know that what this movie portrays is in many respects the truth nowdays in the business of college sports. The football action is some of the best that Hollywood has put on the bigscreen. My friends and I love this film, as it shows what we have lived. We sympothize with even the un-lovable charactors. Latimer does some terrible things in the movie but we know what pressure is like, the injury to the biggest bada$$ on the field hits close to home with any athlete, and keeping ones "edge" is convincing yourself that you are indestructable, invincible. The best football movie out there, still. Whoever says this movie doesn't hit home has never strapped it up and laid hat. Well worth the buy, need more on DVD!"
DVD, Please!

"Beyond being the best football movie ever made, it is one of my favorite movies: period! I saw it in the theatre with the now deleted scene then in it. It was amazing: a total rush! I have seen this movie more times than Star Wars, and I still get a tingle down my spine. If you think football is better than baseball and apple pie put together, this is a movie for you. However, if you are like me and have joined the spoiled, DVD-Surround Sound family, demand DVD, with the deleted scene! Do not settle for VHS!"

"this is the ultimate movie to watch before a big game to get pumped and all-out psychotic. although laying down on the street isn't a good example for the kids, they should have kept the scene in because it adds on to the lifestyle of an athlete-trying to show who's got the cast-iron pair."

"Tom Keogh and Leonard Maltin do not know what they are talking about. If you have ever played football this movie is strikingly accurate and inspiring. It is by far the best football movie and probably sports movie ever made. The acting is brilliant. You must own this movie if you are involved in sports (or if you appreciate good movies). I just want to know if and when they will put it on DVD."
