Unexpected Great Film
30 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I caught this film almost by accident. Being an ardent Ice Hockey fanatic I stumbled across this and decided to stick with the 1995 TV movie but I didn't have high hopes, however I was pleased to find that this was a fantastic historic piece around the original six, Ted Lindsay and the formation of the NHLPA. Not only did I find an absorbing off ice story told with great honesty and integrity but also some excellent on ice action too! I didn't really know the story of the original six and trials and the tribulations they went through in the 50's and 60's but this film really opened my eyes to what was going on! I wont tell you though, go out, hire, buy, beg or borrow and see for yourself! Miracle and the other Hollywood films get the attention but for me this is one ice hockey film you have to own if you are a true fan of the game!
