A combination of rap music, cut throat business decisions, the player's personal problems, the coach's relationship to the owner, all wrapped up in a pro football team. The usual sports "behind the scenes" type movie but with comic twists to keep it from getting to tedious. The biggest claim to fame would be the camera being right on top of the players, rather than being way back showing the whole formation. The Arena Football League did this to try and capture the close up excitement. Life imitates art. Expand

Very good sports movie! I like the struggle between new and old players. Al Pacino and Jamie Foxx did an amazing job. This movie is definitely worth watching.

Al Pacino is the highlight, but it rises about the majority of American Football movies. Some of the Oliver Stone overwork is present, but overall a very enjoyable movie. Stay around for the credits.

Great movie. Just lags a bit towards the end. I'm from Australia so I know nothing about NFL. But that doesn't matter, the story is remarkably poignant. Wonderful editing. Watch this movie. You may learn something.
