This is one of those rare docs, like "Hoop Dreams," where life provides a better ending than the filmmakers could have hoped for. Also like "Hoop Dreams," it's not really a sports film; it's a film that uses sport as a way to see into lives, hopes and fears.

If you're the type who doesn't go to art-house films , Murderball should be your exception. It's hard to imagine anyone could walk away from this movie disappointed.

This is a lively, life-affirming documentary no viewer is likely to forget.

Bracingly honest and ceaselessly compelling documentary.

When it comes to sports movies, there's nothing like the real thing, and there's never been anything quite as real as the documentary Murderball.
