A look into the life of troubled former hockey player Brian Spencer, who got into problems both on the ice and off because of his temper. The film also has a close focus on Spencer's father, and shows how he influenced Brian's life both before and after his death. Written by
This is a surprisingly good account of the less-than-perfect life of former pro hockey player Brian Spencer. If you've never heard of him, don't worry, for I had never heard of him either, and I managed to enjoy the movie. While it's by no means great, it does prove to be good throughout, and it makes quite effective use of old clips from "Hockey Night In Canada". This film would probably be even more popular with those NHL fans who remember Spencer from the 1970's, but it still manages to be a solid movie for those who wouldn't know any of the facts in this movie from fiction.
