just average
28 February 2005 | by malcolm (wildfire160)See all my reviews

Having read all the comments about Hometown Legend one thing that struck me was how diametrically opposed they were,its really bad or how impossibly good it was....... I'm afraid its not either of those though there's a lot to like in it,the acting and football scenes are excellent the music is good but as another reviewer has said there are just too many hokey cliques in the plot and some really stupid plot devices especially those involving the coach,football teams losing streak, school closing, we've seen it all before and done much better if it had been a true story i could have forgiven it all of this but in a drama there should at least be some attempt at an original thought.......a just above average film no worse no better
