Editorial Reviews

Hockey great Gordie Howe retired after 25 winning seasons with the Detroit Red Wings. But he realized that retirement just didn't work for him. When his son's were drafted to the Houston Aeros, he came out of retirement to join the team. He was written off by many, who thought he was too old to be playing competitively. Through hard work, perseverance, and the loving support of his wife and family, he and his sons managed to prove the critics wrong by winning several championships for the team.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meet the real Mr. Hockey June 1, 2013
Most of us were to young to actually see Gordie Howe play. He retired from hockey (NHL) in 1971. Then in 1973 he decided to make his dream come true and play with his sons on the same team.
The movie really shows how strong his wife was....She had the financial smarts and gave Gordie the support he needed ( You get a closer look at Gordie and the Howe family. It's more than just a hockey movie, it's the true events of the Howe family.
The hockey scene's were ok, wish they could have added a little more hockey into it.
After watching this movie I had much more respect for Gordie...the man and the hockey player.
Overal 4 out 5 stars. (More hockey scene's would have brought it to a 4.5 of 5 stars)

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good TV movie June 29, 2013
By DaveZig
I caught this just as it started on of all channels - Lifetime and really liked it. I love the history of the World Hockey Association (WHA), and have seen the old clips, but to see the Aeros jerseys, the Whalers, the Jets (with Bobby Hull and the pissing contest that they had with each other) Cleveland Crusaders (with accurately depicted with Gerry Cheevers in goal) it was amazing! I thought that it was really well done for a made for TV movie, with a lot of passion. Andy Mikita does a great job, bringing back 1973. I'm glad that the Red Wings and the NHL allowed the use of true logos and names (including the Oilers, who originally started off in the WHA). Even some of the old known stories were included, like when Marty gets drafted after Mark and someone in the room yells..."hey are you going to draft Colleen next?" (Marty and Mark's mom) I enjoyed it from start to finish and it is a great story. I am purchasing this movie when it comes out immediately. If you like hockey, then you will like this movie

Kudos to Michael Shanks for his take on the Gordie Howe story. Frankly, I can take or leave hockey, but I found the story well paced and interesting. Shanks really made Gordie likeable and his story worthwhile even to non-hockey fans. Given the amount of violence in hockey, and given Gordie's history, I was at first slow to have the family view this, but the movie depicted it in such a way that everything was still perfectly presentable to the whole family.
