23 Blast (2014)


“Hit that linebacker like he’s your old man.” – Jerry Baker

Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis –Based on the true story of a high school football star who loses his eyesight yet still yearns to continue to play.

My Take on it – Amazing premise that works quiet well.

the story is told in a very inspirational way that helps keep it fascinating throughout.

The concept that someone without use of his eyes could still find a way to contribute to a team sport.

They show the physical, administrative and psychological issue that he faces on his uphill battle.

The fact that this is based on a real story adds a whole new level to things and makes it even more powerful to watch unfold.

The story gives off a ray of hope and shows how much can be accomplished when one pushes hard enough in order to fulfill their dreams.

The cast includes some very familiar actors in supporting roles including Timothy Busfield, Fred Thompson, Dylan Baker and Stephen Lang.

They do a wonderful job showing the camaraderie of the members of the team as they all decide to work together in order to make their season even more successful in all that they do over the course of their season.

The film also is able to give us some nice conflicts between the various characters  that helps show the way that they all need to deal with the various situations that arise along the way.
