Product Description

New England Patriots ~ Super Bowl Xxxvi - New England Patriots Championship Video

Amazon.com

No one expected great things for the 2001 New England Patriots, and their upstart reputation persisted until the final seconds of Super Bowl XXXVI, when a winning field goal at long last established them as football's best. This rousing NFL Films production follows their entire season, beginning with a horrendous 1-3 record and the loss of quarterback Drew Bledsoe before they kept finding ways to win in a season that couldn't help but be emotional. Playing when America was attacked and went to war held a special meaning for the Patriots, who at one game paid tribute to teammate Joe Andruzzi's three brothers who work as New York City firefighters. The Patriots' postseason victories, including a memorable overtime upset in a snowstorm against the fearsome Raiders, are dramatically depicted. And 17 minutes of highlights from the Super Bowl game against the heavily favored St. Louis Rams are presented with all the devotion that only NFL Films can bring. --Robert J. McNamara

Okay, so I'm not COMPLETELY neutral...there were enough Michigan alums on the Patriots (especially Tom "Heart Attack" Brady) so that I was hoping they'd pull out the win. And in the most exciting Super Bowl ever played, they did.
This is a terrific season highlights collection from a really improbable championship run. NFL Films has always been the greatest ambassador the game has; as they have consistently managed to present the game in a way that somehow makes it seem more relevant than it truly is; the film techniques, the epic music accompanying the slow-motion sequences, the on-field microphones...really, there is no other sport that can come remotely close to American football for being as "made for film" as it is.
The 2001 season for the New England Patriots seemed even more epic than most...from starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe getting hurt early in the year to the interruption of play due to 9-11 (tastefully covered in a bonus feature unto itself) and Patriots guard and New York City native Joe Andruzzi's relief after finding out that his brothers in the FDNY made it out of the World Trade Center before it went down to the regular season meeting with the St. Louis Rams indicating that just MAYBE the Rams could be had to the emergence of Tom Brady as the star and eventual starting quarterback to the "tucking" of former Michigan teammate Charles Woodson and the Oakland Raiders in the last-ever game played at Foxboro Stadium to Brady's injury in the AFC Championship in Picksburgh with Drew Bledsoe stepping in to steer the team to New Orleans for the Super Bowl...and then of course the Super Bowl itself.

The NFL shows & tells us beautifully in only 65 minutes the amazing year of the New England PATRIOTS! From pre-season to Super Bowl XXXVI the NFL captures the essence of "TEAM" work & the desire to overcome the impossible, "TOGETHER!!"
This Official NFL Enhanced DVD Edition explodes off the Screen (especially on HDTV)!!! NOTE: this is presented in FULL SCREEN / Aspect ratio 1.33:1, w/Dolby Digital Stereo. The picture quality (outstanding detail & color), game highlights (Slow motion & multiple angle replays) & editing (quick and electrifying)are fantastic!!! This DVD & the Patriots year plays like a HOLLYWOOD staged film.
Outstanding job NFL for capturing the best high-lights of the best plays on film. The editing is perfect, keeping us on the edge of our seats the entire time.
Obviuosly a "PATRIOT FAN" DVD but avid football enthusists will be taken by the ability of a "TEAM" becoming a unified unbeatable force. The perfect Cinderella story. Enjoy.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you are familiar with NFL films, you will be pleased with a whole season leading up to the Superbowl of all the highlights and ups and downs of the season. The special features show two songs done live at the Superbowl by U2 with a tribute to the victims of 9-11, and another short documentary of a Tribute to America, where it shows the players uniting together to remember and honor the lost lives of the 9-11 tragedy as well as uniting as one country. I would even like to say, you will get the best snapshot on still frames of the referee blunder that kept Oakland from winning the game at Foxboro in the snow. The footage is very picturesque as the snow causes havoc and perserverance from the players. Interesting enough, they film also has a short feature on the 1976 PAtriots. Another seasoned highlight of the past where the opposite circumstance happened. A bad call from the referee keeps the Patriots from going on in the playoffs during 76, and who do you think got lucky from that bad call? Thats right --- Oakland! Well balanced features and tributes, makes this DVD a good buy for football fans.

Format: DVD
Football fans will enjoy this DVD; not only does it contain stunning NFL Films footage, but it truly captures the drama and emotion of a remarkable season for the New England Patriots. As a Patriots fan who watched the season unfold, I still got knots in my stomach watching the playoff games when things got tense, and remained incredulous and euphoric when things came together (the non-fumble in the Raiders game, Bledsoe entering Lazarus-like in the Steelers game, and the whole Superbowl). You will not be disappointed.
However, big-time Patriots fans may be somewhat perturbed. Since this DVD features only "highlights" of the season (I can understand why this would be the case in VHS format because of time constraints, but why not tack on the whole Superbowl as "bonus footage" on the DVD, which could easily hold 4 more hours of one of the greatest games ever played), several CRUCIAL moments from the season are omitted: the biggest oversights in my mind are no footage (or even mention) of the David Patten head-out-of-bounds reception in the Buffalo game that preserved their win streak, and no footage of long snapper Lonie Paxton ebulliently doing snow angels in the end zone after the winning FG in the Steelers game.
My other major criticism -- aside from the incredibly cheesy opening commercials noted by several reviewers -- is the lack of bonus features that could have made this DVD one of the greatest items ever. Making a section with interactive player bios and game summaries (with infomation already available on the NFL web site) would have rocked my world.
However, NFL Films did a great job of placing footage of cocky opposing fans and players disrespecting the Pats at the beginning of almost every game. The gloating Jets fan is priceless for any true Pats fan.
In summary, I recommend this DVD to any NFL or Patriots fan... you will probably wish there was more on it, but you won't be disappointed with what you get.
