the documentary that inspired the movie We are Marshall
2 November 2007 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

i thought this was a good documentary.it was well done all around.i liked the fax that the filmmakers interviewed interesting people that were relevant to the event depicted in the documentary.i've found that that isn't always the case.the documentary is basically about the 1970 Marshall College Football team,almost all of who perished in a plane crash on their way back home.as well as the team,the coaching staff and several community leaders also lost their lives.the documentary also gives some background in to the team before the crash.it shows how the town lived and breathed the team.and of course it details the aftermath of the crash and the effect it had on those who,for whatever reason,were not on board the plane that fateful day as well as family members and friends left behind.these people are interviewed,and you can tell the impact the tragedy had and still does to this day.the documentary is very touching,without being maudlin,and is done in a way that is not horribly depressing.it is sad for sure and tragic,but the filmmakers also focus on the good that came from the tragedy.,which i will leave up to you to watch..also,they talk about the team today.overall,a fascinating documentary which inspired the movie We are Marshall.anyway,i hope people read this comment and check the documentary out. 8/10
