    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.

    A kinetically charged gridiron drama that is enormous fun to watch.
  2. Stone is an undeniably stylish director, and his talent for conveying intense emotion is well put to use here. But more often Stone's in-your-face technique is as exhausting as his steroid-enhanced players.
  3. This energetic and diverting sports soap opera throws a few head fakes in the direction of an iconoclastic examination of the dark side of professional football.
