When a high school football star is suddenly stricken with irreversible total blindness, he must decide whether to live a safe handicapped life or bravely return to the life he once knew and the sport he still loves.
In the prime of his youth, up and coming football star Travis Freeman lost his sight due to a sinus infection caused by a rare disease. Overnight, he became irreversibly blind and had to cope with all the new trials and changes awaiting him. With the love and support of his family and closest friends he learned to push himself to extraordinary heights. Relying on his other senses and his instincts, he did the unthinkable! Displaying unconditional determination he proved nothing could dampen the spirit of a champion! Written by
It might not be a complete blast but it's still well worth watching
These kind of sports movies are a hit or miss with me (no pun intended) the scripts all tend to be more or less the same, so it all comes down to if the director and cast is able to take it beyond the clichés and make you care for the characters.
And 23 BLAST does a pretty good job at that, it does come with a bit of a twist though in as the main football-hero is struck with blindness so I guess that helps to spark a greater interest because it's not exactly a common topic.
The cast are all fine, it has a bit of a TV-movie feel to it but overall yeah a good movie that doesn't get too depressing, in fact it made me laugh a couple times so yeah, it's no REMEMBER THE TITANS or BLIND SIDE but it's well worth seeing.
