In 1972, a historical ice hockey game tournament is arranged where the cream of Canada's professional stars of the National Hockey League would play against the best of the Soviet Union's. Although Canada and the USSR have faced off repeatedly on the amateur level before, most of Canada is smugly convinced that the Soviets will be no match for the pros. However, that assumption is forcefully shot down when Team Canada is soundly trounced in the first game by the skilled Soviet Union team. What follows is a bitter struggle as Team Canada fights to recover in a series that would change Canadian hockey's self-image and history forever. Written by

I mean this is like a military operation to these guys. The players have been living in Montreal for weeks just to avoid jet lag. Team Canada is treating this like summer vacation. We're throwing a hundred years of hockey heritage down the ...

This is a very curious film. AT times it looks amateurish, at times it looks documentary like and at times it looks like a typical Candian TV Movie. The feel of the movie is greats with the music, clothing and equipment but if anything the film should have been longer and some of the roles expanded. Some characters never talk. I kept thinking it had something to do with the actors getting paid more for having speaking roles.
However the film was very entertaining. I only wish some roles had been expanded and the office activities elaborated on. The role of Canadian fans and their reaction seem to be minimized and we never did see that guy eat - i think he said hat. It would have been interesting to have seen his reaction. What was Vic Hatfield's reaction after the win? Did he applaud or hold his head in his hands in shame? There were a lot of unanswered questions.
