Great sports movie of all time
on August 31, 2016
My previous greatest football movies are two <ANY GIVEN SUNDAY><REMEMBER THE TITANS>. Well that just have been changed the moment I saw this movie.
You better grab this bluray cause it's just stupidly 5.11$ and that price is just redunculous. The visual/ audio quality is top notch and you won't ever go back to dvd again if you watch this one. And most of all this is the best sports movie ever in my life. NA, let me rephrase, one of the best.
Of course there is <ROCKY> unbeatable film and all.
The story is about this Afro -African guy who dies at the age of so young 23 who shines so bright for such a short time as a foogball player.
Behind him was another great coach Nennis Quaid a white guy a tough bastard but is ok dude whom everyone will fall in love if got to know him well.
Most of all the camera usage is just stunning and you will die for it. It almost remnded me of the car race movie <RUSH> the best movie that has the best camera work ever. Yes this movie was that good.
And then There is Dennis Quaid the great actor that will blow your mind. He is a passionate coach who wants to make this new comer Rob Brown somwwhat invisible but looking back is humorous but charming to look at. Not to flamboyant but stand out enough to want to see again and again kind of actor.
And also is the great beauty Nicole Beharie a chocolate coated SADE kind of girl whom you cannot deny but to fall in love.
But most of all the game sequences are pure stunning to look at.
True heartbeat that you will feel like sitting at the edge of the seat.
The there is this moment when the great player finds out that he is having this desease that he cannot beat.
He's been throught so many things for his position for chist sake.
The prejusice from White people the money the support, the everything beyond.
Now that he is playing well, he is facing death.
But then again he's got nothing to loose.
There comes aglong another new comer saying you are my dream my hero.
He says don't be another me. You be another you. Be a great guy not pretend to be another me. Don't chase my shadow because it's gonna be another shadow that you cannot keep. Something like that.
He was a great guy a great player that you should remember and this movie made him as such.
