Brandon Burlsworth is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Brandon had always dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, but was considered too short and too fat to play Division I. Undeterred, Brandon took a big risk and walked on in 1994. Written off by fellow teammates and coaches, Brandon displayed dogged determination in the face of staggering odds. An extremely devoted Christian, Brandon never cursed or drank. He was genuinely humble and low-key. He worked harder than anybody, on and off the field, becoming the first Razorback to earn a Bachelor's and Master's degree while still playing. The overly-fat kid who was once an embarrassment to his teammates and an annoyance to his coaches, ended up becoming the most respected player in the history of the program, changing the lives of all he touched. Eleven days after being drafted into the NFL, Brandon was tragically killed in a car accident, crushing all who knew him. Brandon was "too good to be true". How could something like that happen to this guy? The age-old question slammed down upon all with terrible force: "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Brandon's story is more than mere football. It is the ultimate expression of the question "Why?" Greater will provide hope and inspiration as it strives to wrestle with this challenge and find reasons to trust. It is "Rudy" meets "It's a Wonderful Life".

It's so beautifully filmed and choreographed that it makes the movie even more of a pleasure to watch. The story of this film is told in a very beautiful way that is so great to watch. It is a beautiful film and I would recommend this film to anyone who has the chance to see it.

I was recently on a pre-screening of the movie and the audience was riveted. The music, the cinematography, the story, the performances, the special effects, the costumes, the overall execution. It was truly a fantastic movie. It's not that the story is new. The story of the past and present are intertwined and there is a sense of urgency and urgency to get the story told. There are many elements that I enjoyed in the film and I can't wait to see the DVD when it's released. I will recommend this movie to anyone who likes fantasy, drama, or any other type of movie that is enjoyable. This is a must-see.

I have to admit, I am a huge fan of the real life 1972 Munich Olympics. I was born in 1973, and I was born after that. So I was a very young person when this was taking place. And I have to say that this movie was a huge relief from the normal dramas that I am used to. And I am very happy to say that the main character, Michael B. Jordan, was very believable. He had to be because there were only about a few people who had a chance to be in the Olympics that year. And his story is so well told that you can't help but feel for him and for his family. He was also very courageous and an even more well played character that we haven't seen in a while. And his acting was very good, and his words were so poignant and so meaningful. I was so glad to see him back in the big screen, and I was even happier when I realized that he was in the lead role. And, I have to say that he was really good, but he was also very good, and he was great, and so was the supporting cast. I hope that this film will be nominated for best picture. It really deserves it.

As a big football fan, I was impressed with the high standards of the film, from the story to the acting. The film's use of an impressive score, as well as the full on on-field action, was really good. I enjoyed the fact that the film didn't put down the major stars of the sport, such as Peyton Manning. I also enjoyed the fact that the film never placed a hero's name in front of the main players names. The story itself was very interesting. It was very difficult to get through the first two thirds of the film without turning off the television. However, I was able to endure this and the story went on to provide the rest of the story. It was very interesting to see how the entire football team was affected by the accident. It was very interesting to see the team's struggle to stay together as a team and how they became a team again. The film really showed how hard the players had to work to keep their head above water. I was really impressed by the work that the actors did to portray their characters. The fact that the entire film was made up of interviews was very interesting, and it really showed the real people that are involved in the game of football. The film really showed the impact that a major tragedy has on a team, and how much the community has to help. I really enjoyed the story, and I really enjoyed the movie. It was very good, and it is definitely worth a watch.

It was great to see a film about hockey in the UK and it is a shame that the NHL did not make a film about the London Olympics. The film was made by a team of volunteers and it is a great example of what people are capable of doing when they are given the opportunity. I would love to see this film become a TV series and I would like to see the sports minister ask for a film to be made about the London Olympics. We need to show the British public that there is an audience for films about the Olympics, not just the BBC. This film is inspirational and shows the talent of British film-makers.

This movie is very well written,acted and is a great example of the overall power of baseball in the American sports. This movie is made in 2003, yet it is very accurate to the times. I think the author of the book "The Iron Horse" did an excellent job at making this movie, and I believe this is the best movie ever made. I wish more movies would be made with this subject matter. I also think that people who don't know baseball should watch this movie. The music was excellent and made me cry. I also think this movie is very important for today's youth. I wish more movies would be made that show baseball in a good light. I think baseball is America's greatest sport.

I went to see this movie and I was completely amazed by how well the cast, especially from the boys, did. They are very funny and lovable characters. And their chemistry with each other was very believable. They are the perfect combination. I thought it was very interesting to see how many of the real-life men who played the characters did not only fit the role, but really "grown" into their characters. The performance by William H. Macy was especially outstanding. I think his accent was very convincing. He really shows that he is an extremely talented actor. And, as always, the amazing Ben Stiller does a great job as the "face" of the movie. He is funny and makes you feel like he is on top of the world. The script was also very well written. I would like to mention the two last lines. One was a little bit more dramatic and it really showed the depth of the friendship between the two brothers. The other one was very funny. I really think that they made the movie so much more interesting. The movie is a great family movie that can be enjoyed by anyone. It was very well done and I highly recommend this movie to anyone.

This is one of the best movies I have seen in a while. It is a great movie with great acting. The story is about a young boy named Gary who dreams of being a baseball player and when his father dies, he wants to help the team. He is bullied by other kids in school but he still tries to be good. Gary is very happy with his father and thinks that the baseball team will win the state championship. He is not happy that his dad is going to die but he is still very happy. Gary gets his wish when the baseball team wins the state championship and his dad gets to see his son play in the big leagues. This movie is very good. It is a great movie with great acting and a great story. This is a must see movie. If you haven't seen this movie you are missing out on a great movie.

I am a hockey fan and a hockey player. I went to see this movie last night, and my heart broke for the boys. I didn't know any of the boys in the movie. I was so happy that they did not go to a high school or college. The movie was very emotional. I cried for 2 days after watching it. I could relate to the characters, and they were the kind of people I would want to be around. I loved the song, "All of Me" by Troye Sivan. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has ever been on a road trip. You don't know if you're going to make it home, but you can at least be in a good mood. I would have given this movie 10 stars, but I'm giving it an 8 because it's a movie, not a documentary. If you have not seen this movie, I would say to yourself, "Do yourself a favor and see it."

I have always been a hockey fan, even if I'm not a great one. I was happy to see this film because it was a nice look at a sport that I love. I loved the way that it was filmed. It was shot in a way that it really shows the sport. I loved the fact that they kept it real and not some Hollywood representation of the sport. I also loved the fact that it was the first feature film to be shot entirely in Canada. I also loved the fact that it was very true to the actual story. It wasn't a perfect film, but it was a good film. I think that it was well worth the time it took to watch.

When I saw the trailer for this movie, I was excited. The trailer gave me a lot of hope for what this movie would be. I was wrong. This movie is not that good. The first part of the movie is good. But it starts to lose its momentum after that. The end is the only part that is really good. The entire movie has some slow parts. The movie is a little bit long. I would not recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a movie about a professional baseball player.

This is the first movie I've seen about a major baseball player. It's a very good movie. I really enjoyed the movie, and I think it's a good thing to have a movie about major league baseball. It's one of the things that makes the sport so great. If you're a baseball fan, this is a good movie for you. I think you'll be happy with this movie. It's a great movie, and it's not too long. It's not a bad movie. It's good to see a movie about baseball, because baseball is one of the greatest sports in the world. The actors in this movie are all very good. You really get a feel for the real life story of a major league baseball player. It's really an enjoyable movie. The movie is really good. I think it's a really good movie. I really enjoyed it, and I think it's a good movie.

This movie was a perfect film. The characters were well developed and the story was a real tear jerker. There are so many moments in the movie that will make you cringe and feel sad that it was over. This movie is one of my all time favorites. This movie is just perfect for everyone and can be watched over and over again. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone. I really can't think of any faults with the movie and I'm glad it is over. I'm not sure why it is rated so low because it is a perfect movie for everyone.

Worth seeing. I don't know why so many people don't like it. I'm not a huge baseball fan but this movie was a nice change. The acting was very good. I liked the sports aspect. It was well done and it really made you feel for the players and their families. I thought the music was great. It fit the movie and gave it a nice touch. The ending was sad and depressing but I think the audience will feel a little better after they see it. I would recommend this movie to anyone. If you're a baseball fan then you should like this movie. If you're not a baseball fan then you should like this movie. This movie is worth seeing. If you see it don't be disappointed.

This is a great movie! The entire cast is superb, and the story is very true to life. The story is about a little girl named Lola, and how she lost her mother in an accident when she was 4, and now she is living with her mother, mother's husband, and her older brother. One day, she meets a boy named Billy, who is a hockey player, and Lola helps him train and take care of his dog. It's not long before Billy and Lola become friends, and Billy tries to be a good boy to his mom, and Lola helps him out, too. This movie is great! It's a great movie that everyone can enjoy, and it's a great family movie, too. It's a must see for anyone, and I know I'm gonna watch it again. The cast is great, the story is very real, and the ending is awesome! I really recommend this movie, because it's a great family movie, and it's great for anyone to see!

Great movie. It's a fun movie for the family. My kids and I enjoyed it. Great job on the production. The only thing that bugged me was the death of the dog. My kids would have liked it. They would have loved it. I would have given it a 9 if I could.

For me, a good movie is one that stays with you after the first few minutes. And I think this is what this movie does. It stays with you after you leave the theater. Even though it is the story of the two best American wrestlers ever, it is a story of friendship and honor. And this is the theme of this movie. You may not agree with the choices the characters make, but you cannot deny that they are human. And they are not the typical Hollywood heroes. It is a great story. And it has the appropriate amount of action. And I give this movie a 9/10

Great movie for all ages! I liked it so much I bought the DVD! I am now the only person in my family to own it. The acting is great, especially from the twins, they were awesome! They made it feel like you were there. The whole family seemed to be enjoying the movie. My wife even cried! I wish I could go back to the 1940s to live in the time of the Twins. I would love to watch it over and over again. I am so proud to be a part of the Twin City family. Thank you for making this movie available to the public! It is a great movie!
