Saw this the other day. Wow. Some heartbreaking scenes and some fine acting. Matthew M (not gonna try to spell it) gives a good performance as the coach who takes over Marshall's football program following the horrific crash that killed everybody on board as the team was returning from a game at ECU.
The football scenes were believable, the acting was top notch. The tear inducing moments weren't heavy handed. Some moments caught me by surprise and had me choked up a bit. (the scene in the film room at WVU).
A very entertaining movie and definitely worth a viewing.
I marked out completely for the Buck Rogers homage. I haven't heard that music in 20 years. I'm still hearing it in my head. I'd make that my entrance music if I were a wrestler, with the time travel count-up in my Titan Tron.
