Editorial Reviews

'Try' is the inspirational journey of three American rugby players pursuing their dream of representing their country in the world's third most popular sporting event- the Rugby World Cup.

Their story of sacrifice will inspire the most hardened of cynics as you travel with them through many ups and downs as each player strives to become a `USA Eagle', a group of men who play the world's toughest brand of football truly for the pure love and respect of the game.

And despite representing the world's richest country while playing one of the globe's most popular sports, most will not earn a cent while competing against fully professional sides.

Dan Payne, a former amateur wrestler who came within seconds of realizing his Olympic dream, has one final chance to complete a pact he made with his brother to make the USA Rugby team and represent his country at the highest levels of sport.

Latu Paloka is an Iraq war veteran, whose best friend died in his arms after being ambushed while on patrol. His goal is to make the national squad in honor of his fallen friend and to give the military a much needed morale boost.

Jarvis Albury, a brilliant athlete and vivacious personality who always looks to the future despite his tough past, has turned down lucrative opportunities with other professional sports for the chance to compete on the sport's biggest international stage.

But just as it appears likely they will finally achieve their dream, fate deals a cruel hand and one will have to make the most difficult decision of his life.

`Try' reminds us all what true sport and sportsmanship were meant to be.

This is a great film! Especially, if you want to learn more about rugby.

I really liked the history of it - who knew that America is the only country to have won gold medals at the Olympics in Rugby.
The players stories are inspiring and they're awesome.
The film made me want to go and watch a game. A very good film for children to see.

Format: DVD
This is an excellent documentary that displays the sacrifice and heart of the rugby experience in America. Having grown up in the USA rugby world from the age of 16, and then going on to play professionally in England at 24, I know the amount of strength, commitment, and sacrifice that goes into playing the game in America as opposed to any other country. That's what this movie portrays. It is not just a smash and grab expo on rugby as a whole, or simply a shallow promo of some of the players, like some have suggested it should be. Even though it has tremendous action and shows USA scoring the "Try of the World Cup" against the eventual champions, South Africa, 'Try' takes a deeper look into the actual lives of the players and what they personally had to do in order to reach their goals. In this way, anyone with lofty aspirations can relate to the people of this film and be inspired to achieve their own level of greatness. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film, and recommend it to every audience.

This is a fairly interesting documentary of three guys trying to make the USA Eagle rugby team for the 2007 World Cup. Though their personal stories are interesting, the film is a bit lacking. It would have been much better if the film would have been a little more in depth about the team, its stars, the training, and included some of the Eagles game highlights.
