I personally thought that A Shot At Glory was a brilliant film portraying an underdog football team doing so well. A scenario that often happens in the stages of the Scottish Cup and the CIS Insurance Cup. I never thought this film would ever be released after waiting two years since i had sat in the stands of Hampden Park for the filming of the final(being a Rangers supporter I naturally sat in the Rangers end). As well as a great plot and characterisation the visual effects were also brilliant, making a Hampden park with little over 1,000 supporters in it looking as if it was at a 50,000 capacity. Well a brilliant film in my eyes and i had slight smile on my face when the words "thanks to all the supporters who screamed their hearts out" appeared on the screen at the cinema. A definite 10 out of 10.
