Trivia

At the beginning, Jace tells a kid he just met to call him Daredevil. Jace is also blind and wears red. This is, most likely, an omage to the Marvel superhero, Daredevil. See more »

Quotes

John Lambrix: Hey, Newfield. Why aren't you out there playing for the home team?
Jace: Oh, I was going to but my seeing eye dog kept pawing everyone's helmets off. HAHA!
John Lambrix: You're a funny guy.
Jace: Yeah, I don't see you laughing. Oh, wait, you're the one who's supposed to be making all the lame blind jokes.

Surprisingly Good...
23 March 2004 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I thought it would be cheesy being a Disney channel movie, but it was really good. I think Andrew Lawrence has a bright future as an actor. I was about to write him off as another Lawrence brother, but I think he's the most talented of the three. He played a blind kid very very well. His movements and his affects were very believable and he delivered his lines very well.

The story was pretty entertaining and the portrayal of the blind was pretty original, too. You don't see wrestling featured in high school movies very often, let alone consider it a sport the blind can participate in. And it was nice to see things like beeping backboards in basketball as another way to incorporate the blind into everyday things they usually couldn't have participated in before. I also really loved the music featured in the movie, especially the guitar pieces "Jace" played. It's definitely worth taping if you can catch one of the repeats.
