a movie worth viewing
10 September 2006 | by dannysooSee all my reviews

Codebreakers was a stimulating review of the ethics of my time. I was going through high school in those years and appreciate getting full details of the football scandal and what led up to it. The peer pressure to conform had to be intense and the movie portrayed the situation well.

I liked the follow-up on the athlete's response, outlining how many regained their dignity and were able to re-enter the military and sports arenas in subsequent years.

I often wondered how the legendary Vince Lombardi got his start, and now I know more of his background.

All in all, it was fine entertainment.
