Above average sports movie

Don't let the fact that this film is about American Football put you off. It deals with a high school football team, and shows how the immense pressure put on the young players affects them and their families. Based on a true story, it avoids most of the cliches that dog other sports films. The extras on the DVD are also top notch, showing the real people behind the story.

If your into this types of sports related films, which I am, you will enjoy watching this. Well worth the watch even if it is very similar to many sports films before it. The same things seem to happen in a lot of these films with the only difference being the sport and where it is set. But this is quite a good film and it will keep you entertained.

Yet another sports movie in which the team pull it all outa the fire for the coach. You either like these or you don't and I do so enjoyed it. This is a character driven movie where we get involved with the lives of the coach and some of the key players who's actions and decisions will decide how the team will do come the big games. Enjoyable.
Good solid American Football movie

Very good football movie, good adaptation from a very good book. Coin toss scene is probably the non dramatic, dramatic scene ever filmed...
Good, for a sports film.

It might look like a cliched american football film but, it is a good show with a twist in the end that makes it worth watching.
