Light-hearted satire, 18 August 2008
Author: Delmare from New York City

In a good-natured attack on the ever-popular sports biopic, Brant Sersen's Blackballed tells the story of a once-legendary paintball player who commits the game's most capital offense – wiping off a paint-stain to conceal being hit. His memory tarnished, his career in shambles, Dukes attempts the comeback of a lifetime, recruiting a group of youngsters who have always lived in his shadow, fighting for his name, and the name of the sport he loves.

Blackballed isn't exactly award-winning material, but then again, it doesn't pretend to be. Everyone involved with the project is clearly having fun, and no one entertains any delusions about the social impact of their efforts, so I'm not really inclined to be critical. Yes, the movie begins to feel a little self-indulgent at times, but I'm a sucker for the mockumentary genre, and the actors do an excellent job with the deadpan humor. I'm also amused by the purposefully clichéd use of hand-held cameras in the combat sequences, a clear knock against Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, movies that are also self-indulgent, but are much less honest about it.
