Interesting and rather sad.
31 January 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I am not particularly a sports fan, yet I always find ESPN's "30 for 30" series to be fascinating and well made. "The Fab Five" is no exception, as it's very interesting...but also like some of these film, a bit sad.

The film is about a group of five freshmen with Michigan University that managed to do the unthinkable when all five ended up starting for the team that same year. Normally, a college team in this era might have one freshman starter--but never before five! This story is about the history of this group of men who rose to ALMOST the top and then tumbled down quite unexpectedly. I would say more about all this but considering you might not be familiar with the story, I'll just leave it at this.

Like other "30 for 30" shows, this one is expertly crafted and is very professional. My only complaint, and it is not a big one, is why was Ice Cube interviewed for the film? He wasn't one of the 'fab five' nor was he closely associated with them (at least you gather this when you watch the film). Interesting from start to finish and very sad in quite a few ways.
