I've been reading a lot of David and Goliath stories in the paper this week. If I were a reporter it'd be my angle too. It has a nice ring about it - except the ring of truth. In that match-up one side had a sword, the other a stone. In this version we both use the same weapon. This

This is the worst film of all time. Its so crap its actually funny. Robert Duvall's accent is ridiculous. The acting is horrific. Anyone seeing this rubbish who didn't know better would have an extremely tainted view of life in Scotland. We don't all live in a Broons cartoon for god sakes. I actually support Raith Rovers (many of whose players and John 'Gie the lads a slap, Allegedly' McVeigh, feature) and thats the only highlight for me, i never thought Steve Tosh would have his own IMDb page. The mind boggles!!!!!
This is a horrible horrible piece of cinema, if its playing at a theater near you, burn the place down, if its in a video shop, burn it down, if its in your house, burn it down (just in case). All memory of this must be destroyed.
Duvall, McCoist, McVeigh, Agathe, Smith, Tosh your boys took one hell of a beating, one hell of a beating.
