The movie has gotten fairly negative reviews, but something that the critics seem to forget: It’s based on the true story about De La Salle High School football team of Concord, California. It’s a drama, and many critics are action and/or comedy folks. They expect physical action in a drama, when they should be looking at the emotional action instead. This movie does have its football game play physical action, but it also has its emotional reality check.
