The Thunder Bay Bombers, the rival team featured in the film, is a fictional depiction of the Philadelphia Flyers NHL team, whose nickname was "The Broad Street Bullies". The 1976 Stanley cup final was the inspiration for the movie. See more »
In the beginning of the film, when they show Rob Lowe playing as a teen, he is shooting left handed. But Dean is then shown right handed when shooting throughout the rest of the film. See more »
I found myself bored by this movie. Firstly, I did not like Rob Lowe or Cynthia Gibb in this movie. I found their characters predictable and cliché and their romance even more so. I did like Patrick Swayze, I though he gave a good performance. But I have to say in a movie like this it isn't good to judge performances as the material isn't very hard to act.
My main problem was as I said, it doesn't capture your attention and i'm mostly talking about the hockey games. I felt like their wasn't even an effort to make the action interesting. I should have been cheering the characters on at that last hockey game but I bored. I guess my opinion is a bit biased after watching the Maurice Richard movie whose hockey sequences were rivaled by no one else in their excitement and joy.
I certainly would not recommend this movie to hockey fans. Maybe the lingering Rob Lowe fans would enjoy it but i found this to be a boring and unmoving film even for a teen movie.
