    I hated this film, Felt no emotion what so ever and I love Drama movies. The acting was below average but oddly enough it was the Rock at his best imo (from the other movies I have seen with him in it). It simply didnt work out.

    Never mind the obvious parallels to "The Longest Yard" and "Remember the Titans"; what we get here is one huge, indigestible sports movie platitude.
  2. Parades itself as an ''honest'' message movie, a call for troubled kids to choose life over street nihilism, but the picture is so earnest that it leaves out the easy, old-school pleasure conjured by the last few years of Disney sports flicks (Invincible, Miracle, The Rookie).

    In a true-life sports tale like the recent "Invincible," you buy into all the inspirational clich├ęs because the characters have inner lives and the movie is about something bigger; here, you keep hoping for something bad to happen to somebody just for the sake of balance.
