I've wrestled most of my life and have coached for the past 13 years... this movie is HORRIBLE for the sport of wrestling! Want a good movie? Checked out "Pinned", "Veritas", or "Takedowns and Falls", or "The Streak" (if you can find it) to name a few.
I honestly told my wife that I was going to throw the movie in the garbage after I survived watching it the first time.
The plot is DARK and DISTURBING.
Spoiler Alert (as if there is anything to spoil): Overall summary - A struggling team is in need of a coach with more wrestling experience. A local alumni surfaces. He was undefeated his HS career, became a military vet, and really mentally disturbed alcoholic (gives the military a bad rap). He ends up working out extra with the best kid on the team. He motivates this kid by holding a gun to his head! SERIOUSLY! It gets worse... the kid's freshman sister joins the team. The nut-job coach ends up having sex with her and gets her pregnant! WTF?! The kid confronts the coach at the gym. The coach gives the kid his gun - the kid attempts to shoot the guy but the gun was empty. The coach apparently loads the gun and blows his own head off. The End.
PLEASE DON"T BUY!
I had to fast forward through parts just so that I could make it to the end. Reversal is a much better film if you want to see what wrestling is really like, or what it use to be like. Anyway, don't waste your time watching this thing.
I recommend this to people of all ages.
Gritty story of youth and the challenges that
young people face today.
Multi-award winning film.
Truly a remarkable find!!
The acting is very strong - Lonelygirl15 (Jessica Rose) proves she's not a one-hit wonder and the other cast members are excellent too. However, real kudos goes to Anthony O'Brien who steals the show with his heartwarming and believable portrayal of Lee Bishop, the aspiring yet confused young man who is so concerned with aiming for the top that he completely forgets where his priorities should be.
The production values are excellent and rival those of movies with considerably larger budgets. However, I really have to single out the soundtrack here. The music is incredibly beautiful and really helps to ground the viewer emotionally within the film. I will definitely be purchasing the soundtrack.
One thing I will say is that the drama takes priority over the wrestling, so if you're looking for a typical Hollywood sports movie with big stars and lots of action, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a movie that will make you laugh, cry and think, be sure to watch Perfect Sport - you won't regret it.
It's a very fresh take on the teen sports genre that doesn't fall into the usual traps or clichés. I hate movies where you know what's going to happen in advance - this isn't one of them.
The writing and acting were both excellent and the score was fantastic. I wasn't sure at first but I ended up really enjoying this movie (I have watched it 3 or 4 times now).
