Could have been excellent
25 December 2003 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that I came across on HBO one night and although I did not "Hate" the movie I did think it had the possibility to be much better.

The movie is basically about a businessman (Monroe) who takes up volleyball and eventually wins the final tournament to become the world champion. I admit it is kind of a weak storyline but not all respectable movies have great storylines.

My basic problem with the movie was the shot selection. To me, being a respectable volleyball player both indoors and in the sand, much of the action scenes brought laughter to me. It is almost as if this movie pretty much ruled out Hollywoods desire to create a good volleyball movie.

Basically, the movie is not horrible by any means but could have been much better with better direction (no offense to Peter Israelson). I just hope Hollywood will overlook this production and give the sport another chance on the big screen with the growing popularity.

Overall: 4/10
