Outstanding Film
2 December 2019 | by nonnascondiglioSee all my reviews

What can you say that is bad about this film to put it simply nothing. It's a film not just for rugby or sports fans but for anyone who wants to watch a David versus Goliath battle years in the making. The casting of the roles is brilliant at times you dont know where Temuera Morrison ends and Eddie Jones begins. The fact the end of the film is just the end of a chapter of the Japanese Rugby team who's adventure just grew in the 4 years after the film not just to host the world cup in 2019 but cement theee place in rugby fans hearts. It's a film that you will want to watch again and again
