It’s the words of the men and women giving their “final account” that makes the movie sufficiently important to warrant viewing.
An excellent movie but not a lot of fun to watch, especially for those with first-hand experience in this area.
Although the movie leaves a lot of stones unturned (both in the comedy and horror arenas), there’s enough spattered blood to satisfy fans.
There are indications the filmmakers think they’re operating in the realm of satire but the movie gets lost in action/thriller territory that’s anything but thrilling.
First-time director Radha Blank's infectious sense of energy and passion infuses every frame and gets the viewer through the slow parts.
The biggest shock of this new movie re-imagination is that it makes the cheesy TV series seem fresh and smart by comparison.
A worthy follow-up with enough heart, action, and music to entertain younger and older viewers alike.
Broadens the sports movie without sacrificing the integrity of its essential elements.
Its approach and style contrast markedly with the artificiality and lack of ingenuity that has infected the genre over the years.
