Family Fare for Football Fans - Game Time: Tackling the Past
31 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Game Time, Tackling the Past is a made for TV film by Walmart and P&G Family Entertainment Initiative. This film is a touching story about a family with two brothers- one is a professional football player and the other is an assistant coach for his old high school football team. When a near tragedy strikes the family, the two brothers have to come together to rebuild their family.

I think this movie is very good. The cinematography is wonderful because it is done in a documentary style, which makes it seem more realistic. My favorite character is Mica because he really pulls Jake to his senses and helps him along the way.

My favorite scene is when the football players do cheerleading warm-ups to help improve their grace and agility on the field because it was really funny. I give this movie 3 out of 5 stars because it was good, but I did lose interest a little.

I recommend this movie for 13 and up because younger children will get bored.

Be sure to catch Game Time on NBC on Sept 3.
