Good But Too Much Footage from the First Film
13 April 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Reverse of the Curse of the Bambino (2004)

*** (out of 4)

Follow-up to CURSE OF THE BAMBINO gathers up Boston Red Sox's fans, writers and celebrity fans as they discuss finally breaking the curse in 2004. This documentary is certainly a few notches below the previous and the biggest reason is that the majority of the running time here is just footage from that first doc. I think it's fair to say that this thing was probably rushed into production after the Red Sox won the title so this might explain why so much footage was used but it really wasn't needed. They should have either left it out, edited it down or come up with some new stuff. With that said, the "curse" stories of the Red Sox's career was just so strange to listen to but even stranger was the way they ended up finally winning. Being down 3-0 to the Yankees when the curse finally lifted and as the fans said you could just see that everything that normally went against them was now going for them. The interviews with the Red Sox fans were extremely touching and funny as they finally got what they've been waiting for their entire lives. Hearing them talk down about the Yankees was also quite funny even if they still have plenty more championships. Red Sox and baseball fans should enjoy this.
