    It's worth seeing the action scenes on the big screen, and to get in the mood for the World Cup opener later this month.

    Demonstrating yet again that he knows few limits as an actor, Duvall not only nails the accent, he inhabits the man's flinty, grudge-bearing contrariness with such a furious commitment that it brings out the best in the actors around him.

    Registers as a more scenic "Hoosiers" with rowdier fans.

    Solidly entertaining little film.

    Mediocre, dramatically flat picture.
  6. Not as distinctive or even as humorous as its needs to be to stand out, but it has clearly been made with affection and care.
  7. For all the satisfying details in the script, the big picture remains hopelessly and intentionally trite.
