There's scarcely a scene in which the actors, action and sound track aren't cranked up to maximum intensity.
A kinetically charged gridiron drama that is enormous fun to watch.
Though there are helmets deeper than this movie, you do have to admire the level of screen showmanship .
A turbocharged and pungently enjoyable take on the sport so many observers see - Stone, of course, included - as a reflection of the darker side of American life.
If this rousing, technically dazzling movie doesn't get you going, then you probably didn't like football to being with.
A testosterone- and cliché-fueled epic that will have some hoping for sudden death as it stumbles toward the three-hour mark.
