Many of the contemporary issues within football were raised with nuance. Al Pacino delivers one of the greatest sports speeches. Strong cast
The most intense sports drama I’ve seen. Actually, The Program is probably more intense.
Some excellent performances in this ensemble especially Pacino. Well organised by Oliver Stone with variations on common sport movie tropes.
Not the best sports movie out there, but has some memorable scenes
Good football movie about what happens behind the scenes.
Best action scenes in a football movie. Puts you right in the action. The NFL must have hated this though considering the off field action
There aren’t many decent football movies out there but this one is pretty good.
Probably only good if you like American Football, but if you do it's a banger
Decent. One of the best speeches in cinema history.
There is a guy in this movie who has a penis that hangs to his knees. Imagine that casting call.
A young reformed gambler must return to playing big stakes poker to help a friend pay off loan sharks.
