23 BLAST is an entertaining and inspiring film for the whole family!
25 October 2014 | by (Franklin TN) – See all my reviews

23 BLAST is an entertaining and inspiring film for the whole family! I typically find inspired-by- a-true-story films to be more engaging…and 23 BLAST definitely delivers on this front. Travis Freeman's story of overcoming extreme adversity would seem impossible if it weren't true. I loved the inspiring themes of perseverance, friendship, family and faith. They apply well beyond the gridiron that serves as the backdrop for 23 BLAST. The production value is high and the acting is believable and engaging in this film. Mark Hapka delivers an amazingly believable performance as Travis Freeman. Stephen Lang is compelling and inspiring as Coach Freeman. Mark Hapka and Bram Hoover (playing Travis's friend Jerry) have great chemistry together as best friends and deliver well on both the humor and emotional elements. Alexa Vega plays friend Ashley very well, adding a nice emotional and romantic touch that balances out the film. After seeing the film, I've enjoyed learning more about the real Travis Freeman, which adds even more to my experience of the film.
