Critic Reviews

  1. 38
    Obviously made with all of the best will in the world, its heart in the right place, this is a sluggish and dutiful film that plays more like a eulogy than an adventure.
  2. The dialogue and acting are flatter than a punctured ball.
  3. 30
    It is flat-footed, uninspired and disjointed from start to finish, a glaring disservice to the men who played the game.

    Good intentions that missed the mark on many levels. I wanted to like it and drove for over an hour to see it.
