Well, this movie really took me by surprise. The cast was amazing, the story was too, but I loved the film. The song "I Know" was in my top 5 favorite songs. I like how the film showed how one person could impact a life. My favorite part of the film was when the dog, Bun, ate the grass and how the movie tried to bring this to the public's attention. For my favorite part, I say the whole cheerleading team. That was pretty cool. They have so many aspects, like the dance moves, the running through the field to try to win the game. It was something that was really cool, but now it is something that I want to see for myself. This film is about different people, but there is only one "bad" person. I love the ending when they had to move to another town to be safe. It was so intense. I love that they also showed that people can be friends with each other, even if they had a rough past. It was sad. The ending was also pretty good. It was also sad when Bun died. So many emotions. I really liked how they showed a family that wasn't perfect, even if they didn't know it. I also like how they showed how people can affect each other. And when people try to make them feel better, it really makes them feel bad. I think that it's so hard to let go of things you hold on to. I thought it was great. It's a really sad and wonderful movie that shows that even people can have friends and family that can bring them happiness. The acting was very good. And I think that if there is a sequel, it could also be amazing. My only problem with the movie was the ending, but it was a great ending. The songs were good. The acting was good, and everything. My score: 8.3/10 Rated R for violence and some language. My mom and I loved this film.

OK, first off, I'm not a big wrestling fan, but it was really interesting to watch these pro wrestlers actually go through this story and try to go through with their lives. When I started the movie, I thought it was going to be a bunch of p*ss talking about the life of the pro wrestlers, but, I found that some of the pro wrestlers were talking about their relationships with their friends. You actually feel like you're watching this whole story. I think the acting is great, the story is interesting, and the crowd that comes to the movie is very supportive and gets the best scenes. There's a lot of stories told about what goes on in pro wrestling. I really feel like the movie will be successful because it shows the people behind the pro wrestlers. It shows how people are doing in their careers and not just being famous for the most part. Overall, it was a great movie to see, and I can't wait to see it again.

Watched this film twice over the Christmas period, once in cinemas and once in the cinema (movie). I am pleased to say I enjoyed it both times, however I found myself both absorbed and frustrated by the pace of the film, feeling as if I had been driving in circles in a real life time-bomb. Having said that, it is still an engaging and worthwhile film, and much better than the big budget Hollywood films that are filled with sex, explosions and stupidity. The dialogue between the main characters is mostly top notch, and each character has a nice twist at the end which makes for some extra satisfaction. The plot is well presented and the storyline comes across as being fairly thought-provoking, particularly for a film of this type. I think the plot could have been improved somewhat, however, it is still an interesting and satisfying film, and I think people who have not been around in the sixties can enjoy it for what it is, and the film is still worth seeing. I hope this film becomes the cult classic it should be, which I hope it does.

This is a movie for people who care about sports, and the players who put themselves through the turmoil that comes with it. The story of an untested outsider rising through the ranks, and eventually winning a world championship is compelling, and in the end, it's all about the player, who shows off his talent on the field, and in his private life. But the movie is also about the players themselves. This is not a black and white movie. I have to admit that I do not understand it. I mean, I watch baseball a lot, but this movie is more about the players, and their motivations. Some of them are so sincere, you wonder if they even understand what they are talking about. In the end, I don't really care who wins the championship, I just want to see the players go home happy and have a good season. I am not sure that if I really cared more about the players, it would have been a good movie. But it was good enough for me, and if I were in the position of watching this movie over and over, I would be glad that it exists.

The 1985 film "The Casey Affleck Story" was the first film of its kind. But I'd wager that no other film has even come close to this one, and even that may be stretching it. If you're a sports fan or have any interest in all things American history, "The Casey Affleck Story" will provide an interesting, but non-epic story of a true hero, such as Jackie Robinson. If you're a fan of football or American sports, the movie will inspire you to watch the "World Series of the 1920's", "Game 7 of the 1923 World Series", or "The Carriers", all of which are just as entertaining as "The Casey Affleck Story" was. I recommend this film for anyone looking for a great sports movie. You won't be disappointed.

As an Irishman, I think that this movie and I would make the same decision. I felt really sad for Tommy when he was playing football. I was so worried about him when he was losing his talent, but he was doing a brilliant job. But this movie was so good, and I loved that it wasn't about football and was really about people in the community who were really important to the city, like the Mayor. I felt so happy when they played with the Tigers and when they played the Lions, I was so happy. The police had been running around in their uniforms, and they were being trained. It was really cool and so good, but I really liked the culture of the city. I would love to watch this movie again.

I went to watch this movie with my friend and his girlfriend. I remember I was laughing the entire movie. It was a good movie, with a good story. If you like boxing and good movies, you will like this one.

The biopic on Tommy Girdler is quite an achievement. Obviously it was based on the memoir of the original boxer, which is very good and makes the film all the more perfect for it. But the film itself is not nearly as gripping as it should have been. It is a well-meaning attempt to revive the forgotten and actually somewhat flawed life of this champion, but it just could have been better. Tommy Girdler was a monster. When you consider the reasons why he was beaten, it is no surprise that he was a monster, and could be portrayed in a far better way. But all the great fight scenes are there, in fact all of them are outstanding. And they are extremely well put together. The way the story is told is what makes this film great. It is well paced and always kept me entertained. The portrayal of the villain was an excellent choice, and the moral of the story is one of the most powerful. Also the screen play by Dermot Mulroney and Tom Burlinson is superb. The script is not perfect though, some parts could have been better written and the love interest was a bit underdeveloped. Overall, this is a very good film, that actually could have been better. That is not to say it is the worst biopic ever made, but it is certainly not the best.

This movie was really good. Great casting, amazing story, and a powerful cast, as it should be. I think everyone would agree that it was an Oscar worthy performance from Javier Bardem and Idris Elba, both of whom really made the most of the script. The film was really emotional, and it shows. This movie does a great job of showing the hard lives of those who are living without hope and the possibilities that exist out there in the real world. This film is well worth seeing, and you should definitely see it.

I have always enjoyed this sport as it did not seem that easy to find a director who would give it the chance it deserved, so I am very happy that Kevin Macdonald has taken on the challenge, to make a superb film on the troubled life of Frank Bruno. It is undoubtedly the best acting effort I have ever seen from the talented Patrick Somerville as the infamous Jack Nicklinson and the then-unknown but more believable Josh Lucas as the modern day Canadian-born grappler. It is hard not to admire the film for what it achieves, but it is hard not to feel that at times the story has been overemphasised. There are good moments of narration and telling, but not enough to make up for the emotional elements of the film. The ending, though, is at least worth paying attention to. Another aspect of the film I was quite disappointed in was the production values. At times, the style is all over the place, and the quality of the production values is not necessarily going to be high by the standards of other recent Australian films. However, the performances are extremely strong and the documentary style behind the scenes footage made me feel like I was there at the time. I really felt a sense of ownership for the characters, and was in fact in the movie for the duration of it. Overall, I would recommend this film for fans of sport and either beginners or veterans of Australian cinema.

.but it was all worth it. This film was wonderfully acted, quite serious at times, and has a serious message. I'm not a big fan of football, but I do love the game. I love the way that it is portrayed in this film, and it was a relief to see the passion and tragedy that goes into it. I highly recommend this film, and it would be excellent as a show to anyone interested in football. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in football, not just "football fans".

I thought this movie was great, not only the story but the acting. Especially that of Clark as he won the speed skating world championship and fought Michael Corleone for the title of best bad guy in the world. I thought that Clark and Lorie were very convincing as a couple, the acting was also very good. I also thought that the scenes between Clark and his dad were very good. But what really surprised me was how even though Clark was losing a lot of weight he still managed to continue to train for the Olympics and beat Michael Corleone. At the end of the movie I was on the edge of my seat, I was saying to myself "that's it! I'm finished!" when I saw that he had won his first gold medal. I thought it was great that the race was so close and that they had to split the medals evenly between him and Michael. I don't know how they did it but I think they had to give Clark the gold medal just to make it more exciting. I thought it was a great movie, it's very hard to find a movie like this today, it made me sad to see that so many young people don't understand the value of sports.

I've never been a fan of the football films. I thought The Player was a boring, unconvincing, charade and I'm not a fan of Real Madrid. But after the death of Yilmaz Alberuni (the man who really did invent the soccer concept) I couldn't resist the temptation to watch a 'football' film. This film did a great job in making the game seem like real life and I was very pleased with it. The performances were good, the music was good and I'm sure that this is the kind of film that every footballer should have his own version of.

I loved the acting in this film. Sure it is a soap opera but there was something that made it worth watching. The story was about Tommy, a 15 year old kid who got into a feud with his father and even the school bully who tried to strangle him with a rope. Tommy has to turn to someone to help him in the life, like his Dad and a new girl that he falls in love with. Tommy's Honour takes a couple of different approaches. It is a drama and a comedy in the same style of True Blood. So you have two completely different types of story and they intertwine in the same movie. The acting was absolutely wonderful. All the actors gave a great performance in this film. I was shocked by just how good these actors were. I have never really liked Tommy Lee Jones and his acting is my biggest complaint with him. Now with this film I don't even have a problem with him. I really enjoy this film. It is a must see for any true drama lovers. This film has great acting, directing, and story. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a good film. 8/10.

Definitely an enjoyable film. The performances are wonderful and there are really funny parts. Definitely one of the better rugby films.

It's a shame I had to wait until recently to see this movie. I was really interested in seeing it, because I was planning to watch it last week, but didn't have the time. Luckily, I saw it last night. But it did have an impact on me. And, I will say this first - this is an Oscar-worthy film. It was well-written and acted. The film was wonderfully realistic. The story was emotionally powerful. The scenes were well-shot and made the whole film look professional. It was also informative, and taught a lot about human nature. It did it in such a subtle way, that I'm not going to spoil it here. But let me give you a little background about how it got made. The story is based on a true story. It was a hard-hitting, emotional movie with lots of emotions. It was well-acted, and well-written. But the story was also interesting, and it was different, but definitely not boring. It's a really good drama. The story is not simple, and it's not some comedy. It is deep and it is involving. It also has an amazing scene, where the band members all have to do what they think is best for the band, and the way they do it, and the way they act. It is also a very well-written film. The story is incredibly rich and well-written. The film is also well-shot. It has a very well-written, well-acted script. It's got a great storyline, with some great dialogues. I could go on and on about how good the acting was, but I think you're already seeing the story for yourself. If you want to see this movie, I would strongly recommend seeing it last night. It's well-worth it.

*Spoiler* The true story of the biggest football story of all time in the history of the world is told with some elegance. The boys getting the opportunity to play at the highest level of football was a spectacular experience and when they go out on their own, they are no longer playing for any football team, but the nation. The very good looking men, got together and took the challenge of playing for the national team, and the responsibility of going to any lengths to get on the team. When you see this movie, you realize the self sacrifice that the players had to go through to get to the top level of football. You realize the sacrifice that they had to go through to become the top players that they are today. The movie is narrated by Neil Jackson who has been involved in football for many years. He knows what it takes to go out and get this high up in the football world, to play for his country, and at the same time enjoy the comforts of home. The film does not include any pictures or video footage, but only highlights. The film shows the heart, the soul, and the spirit that one must have to become a footballer, and this movie shows how it is done. The story of the boys gets to be told in the context of the country of Ireland, which was very much represented in the film. The children and the parents of the boys are very well played by the actors. The pictures shown in the film are from the book of the Boys by Patrick O'Kane, which was the official history book on the Irish football team. The movie was directed by Andrew McGlynn, who also directed some episodes of the television series "The X Factor", which stars Katie Hopkins. Katie Hopkins was also the star of the show who was nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress. This film also includes a lot of musical elements to really make this film great. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn a little more about the Irish football legend Brian O'Driscoll.

I love Tommy McGuire. The media are getting more and more influenced by him, but this movie also did it justice. The best thing about this film is that it doesn't waste any of it's time and it doesn't try to pull any punches. I was really surprised to see this movie getting this many positive reviews. The music, editing, and acting was great. The story was very good, and didn't feel forced at all. It was good, I loved it, it was very emotional, and interesting. The acting was great, and the music is better than in most movies. I will say that the film also did it's job in portraying the supporting players, because they were so good at making you believe that they were really upset with Tommy's honour, that they were just out for revenge. I think that all in all, this is a great film, if you're a Tommy McGuire fan, I would recommend it. It's a movie that the entire family can watch, and that they can enjoy.

I watched this movie with my family recently. I watched the English Dub version and I was very impressed with this movie. As always, the action was extremely intense and very entertaining. I am a big Hideo Nakata fan, and even more so this movie. I think Hideo Nakata is one of the greatest character actors and actresses of all time, and I think this movie is one of the best movies ever made. I think everyone should watch this movie.

The movie gives a fascinating and honest account of the Irish Civil War, one of the most painful events in modern Irish history. It will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the very end. It is very difficult to watch the ending, for it will shatter your belief in the true conflict, but it is done brilliantly. In general, I recommend watching this film, for it is an important film and as history goes, it is something which should be remembered. 8/10

A well directed, well acted, very strong acting, a story told very well, a great script. It's the story of the Duke's favourite, and not only his football skills but also his character. I was totally impressed by the leading actor. The boy's acting was superb. The emotions are present in every moment of the film. It is interesting to see how he would react, as the story evolves. The director who I think did an exceptional job, because he managed to bring out the true story of the Duke, and not just the fiction. No, he knew his subject, the Duke's favourite, and that was his main goal of the film. Some people may not like this film. Some people might not like it because they feel that it doesn't get the true story, or the real emotions of the Duke. But I think it's a good film. I'm not going to give it a 10 but I would rate it 8.5/10. I rate it highly.

A typical fight movie, not a movie for the fans, but for the movies and fans. There are quite a few (i'm guessing) hardcore MMA fans here, so this movie isn't for them. It's for anyone who appreciates movies where a good story and an action scenes are kept out of the background. The movie is well done and always interesting to watch. There are a few issues with it, like the lack of a close up on the many fighters in the fight and the text is on the screen a bit too long sometimes. The story is nice and well executed and the actors are also well done. A good movie for all movie lovers. It won't win any Oscars but it is one of the best movies of the year, which made it even more amazing to watch.
