A kinetically charged gridiron drama that is enormous fun to watch.
There's scarcely a scene in which the actors, action and sound track aren't cranked up to maximum intensity.
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.
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.
Though there are helmets deeper than this movie, you do have to admire the level of screen showmanship .
