Number of Times Seen – 1 (19 Nov 2014)
Brief Synopsis – Based on the true story of a high school football team who (to this day) hold the record for the longest consecutive win streak of 151 wins.
My Take on it – I actually enjoyed the pacing and the way the games were shot in this movie because they were done in a way that despite this being based on a true story, you never can guess what the outcome of each individual game will be.
I liked the parallels brought forth in this story to other examples of brotherhoods and teamwork.
The cast was pretty good and helped bring together the inspirational message that we are meant to take with us.
The problem that I had with this one tho, was the fact that a number of scenes felt way too preachy and they slightly took away from the way the rest of the movie was presented.
Bottom Line – Inspirational sports film that would work even better if it didnt feel so preachy. Solid cast, great sports action and a great message about teamwork. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
