Storyline

In February, 2006, young Luke Abbate accepted a ride home from a fellow student following his high-school team practice. In a severe case of irresponsible and reckless teen-age driving, and over the objections of Luke and the other young passengers, the driver lost control of the car at nearly 90 miles-per-hour, spinning off a narrow road and landing in an embankment some seventy feet below. Luke suffered irreparable brain damage, and died in the hospital two days later - just four days before his sixteenth birthday. Written by anonymous

Tries to hit all the stereotypes and fails miserably
20 August 2011 | by fraudiaSee all my reviews

This is an amateurish movie. This is a waste of a "based on a true story" movie. -Acting is halfway decent and is not helped by the poor dialogue. -The background music/song selection is incessantly annoying because it feels over the top and forced. -Scenes jump all over the place and lack cohesion. -Even the sports part is about as unexciting as you can get. I mean how can you screw that up?

Basically it's a bad movie and this is coming from a guy whose a sucker for this type of inspirational true story/sports genre.

So in closing, is this a half assed review? Yes it is, but you know what, I felt compelled to tell the other side after reading the only other review which is clearly biased.
