Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This collection of film segments promises to show the viewer "the game behind the game," and by taking cameras into National Hockey League locker rooms and putting microphones out on the ice, it accomplishes just that. Features include coverage of a milestone, the night goaltender Patrick Roy set the record for career victories, and a segment focusing on ordinary games, as sensitive microphones pick up spirited comments uttered by players, coaches, and officials on the ice and on the bench. NHL veteran Ray Ferraro offers his perspective on how the game is really played, and some bone-crunching film footage punctuates his explanations of how fast the players are skating and how hard they really slam into each other. The camera enters the locker room to show techniques coaches use to motivate players, and officials are seen suiting up and preparing for a game in their dressing room. The officials also provide perspectives on their jobs, and how it has only gotten harder in recent years thanks to intensive coverage of every single NHL game. Wayne Gretzky's final NHL game and a tribute by the fans is chronicled, and after the game the Great One is seen literally hanging up his skates. This is a very entertaining look at aspects of pro hockey that the usual television coverage tends to overlook. --Robert J. McNamara

From the Back Cover

Become a part of hockey history: Be there when Wayne Gretzky hangs up his skates for the final time. See Patrick Roy become the NHL's all-time winningest goaltender. Stand in awe as Mario Lemieux stuns the sports world by coming out of retirement. It's all here and more in NHL All-Access. And with NHL All-Access, you won't just witness these events, you'll go inside the game. Listen to what is said on the bench, on the ice, and inside the dressing rooms. Experience first-hand the intensity, the power, and the pride that goes into each game.

Plus the NHL All-Access DVD is packed with over 30 minutes of exclusive bonus footage, including the dramatic "Pond of Dreams" short film, which opened the 2000 NHL All-Star Game. Travel to Sweden with the Vancouver Canucks, spend a day with Valeri Bure, see the inner workings of the NHL Entry Draft, or navigate through a photo gallery of hockey images. Only on DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Content! Content! Content! December 13, 2001
Format:DVD
I was plesantly surprised by this DVD primarily because I expected it to be little more than an hour-long version of 'Cool Shots.' NHL Productions actually does live up to the behind-the-scenes idea with this DVD. The entire program isn't all locker room, coaches, and trainers, though. Those bits are mixed in with the program highlights on Gretzky's retirement, Mario Lemieux's comeback, Patrick Roy's 448th win, and Dan Moriarty's brief stay with the Minnesota Wild. There are also chapters on game preparation for officials and coaches, as well as on-ice communications, hits, and discussion on the fast and spontaneous nature of the game. Beyond the actual program, there are also a ton of bonus chapters to check out along with an interactive section to access with your computer. For fans, this DVD is well worth its purchase price because NHL Productions didn't skimp on it. It doesn't have a lot of game highlights, but what it does have is a refreshing change to NHL Productions' usual product.

NHL All Access, hosted by NHL veteran and ESPN analyst Bill Clement, is an entertaining, albeit short, look behind the scenes of the NHL. From on-ice chatter, to a look at the unsung virtues of the referees and linesmen (that is, BEFORE all this obstruction nonsense), All Access affords hockey fans to get a better feel for how the NHL works. It's short length is the only thing recommending against a purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Behind the scenes May 17, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
From riding in Mario's car to the Igloo, to Gretzky's farewell at MSG, to Dan Moriarty getting hazed (and I mean hazed!) by the Minnesota Wild, it's a fun look at the other facets of the NHL. This is not a highlight reel -- it's a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes stuff. Lot of fun extras as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Decent May 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If you are looking for highlights of big moments during games, don't get it. There aren't many gameplay highlights. But if you wanna see all the behind-the-scenes stuff like locker room chat, what hockey players do on off time, interviews, etc., get it. Its pretty good.

4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT! March 23, 2002
By K
Format:VHS Tape
Living in Australia, we don't get to see any hockey games on the T.V., but mate, I have to tell ya, I was very pleased with this...it pointed all the major things that we didn't get a chance to see down here. e.g. Lemieux coming out of retirement and Gretzky hanging up his skates. It is a fantastic video for behind the scene views of the hockey world, but if you want more action...then this might not be for you. I hope that people do get the chance to see this. Good on ya, and I hope I helped ya.

2.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable. Time for something NEW! January 5, 2006
Format:DVD
Quick shots of the normal crash-bang you see at most games. Short on player comments and experience. I expected more in depth commentary from the players to balance out the presentation fluff which amounted to a lot of flash shots of guys snapping at other guys who may or may not be playing in the same game (the uniforms didn't match up). Don't try and get a full sense of what the players are doing or saying in the locker room; you'll be disappointed. This movie proves the need for a better, more in-depth, and dare I say, hard-core film on the behind-the-scenes exchanges in hockey on and off the ice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Behind the scenes look at NHL April 15, 2007
By JJGuy
Format:DVD
Ok video - not too long or indepth - but pretty interesting look at behind the scenes NHL day to day player info.

If you have seen the "mic'd up" segment on regular hockey tv where they mic up a player - I think it is like that. You get a bit of the players commentary on things but not too much.
