this film is thouroughly enjoyable, recommended by one of my friends, all i was expecting a story about an american football team achieving sucess however discovered a deeper more emotional storyline involving race and friendship. brilliant acting, brilliant film based on a true story!
LEFT SIDE, STRONG SIDE!
This must be one of my favourite movies ever! powerful performances from the likes of Denzel! This movie is fun, exciting, sad, hard hitting, an absolute gem!
If you have not seen this movie, you need this in your life!!!!!
You don't need to be a fan of American Football to appreciate this film. It concentrates on the concequences of white and black american school merging ... following the combined black and white football team it highlights rasism, anger, frustration, friendship, honor and dignity. Excellent acting from all, I could not see any weak link. It has a message for all. I was glued from start to finish and there is not a dull moment throughout.
From a non American Football fan .... I loved it, the football is a back story really. The real story is having the courage to stand up and do the right thing, to stick up for your friends and to do it with integrity.
* Blu-Ray - it upscales very well on a Blu-Ray player as well - good crisp quality image.
