Storyline

17 Seconds' is a unique project that doesn't just document the Stanley Cup win, but tells the story from an inside vantage point, something not usually captured in sports films. The access and rapport the Banner Collective team has with the Blackhawks players and organization ultimately gives fans an intimate look into the thrill of a historic victory and the subsequent celebration. Written by Chicago Blackhawks

Worst Sports Documentary EVER !!!!!!!!!!!! - & I'm not exaggerating
31 January 2014 | by telecashcardSee all my reviews

Look - If you are a Black Hawks fan (oops) I mean SERIOUS HOMER, then maybe, just maybe, you will like this brainless, uninteresting schlock masquerading as a documentary.

Incredibly, there is NOTHING in this documentary - Seriously, there is NOTHING here - no information on the season - the highs the lows the adversity to overcome (if there was any).

You see aprox 1 minute of actual Hockey and of course those 17 seconds.

Then you see 50 minutes of grown men yelling, screaming for joy and trying to describe how good they feel cause they just won the cup.

Really......is that it Yep, that's it.....that's all this piece of garbage has......looks like they had a few morons with mobile phones documenting the "aftermath" and slapped them all together for 1 regrettable hour.

I am a Sports fan and a documentary fan - so when there is a Sports Documentary.......any Sports documentary on ANY subject / sport, it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE for me NOT ENJOY.....but I HATED this.

What I am so disappointed about, is that there was absolutely NOTHING to learn or to follow here - other than watching grown men yelling and cheering and holding a cup aloft (alot).

To illustrate my point, I just finished watching Under the Boardwalk: The MONOPOLY Story - which is an average doco - but loaded with plenty of nuggets of info and feel good points of interest to keep the viewer engaged...... unlike 17 seconds

So feeling good and supposedly saving the BEST for LAST .......(now you should whisper this next sentence)...and then I watched 17 seconds immediately after that. :(

BUT 17 seconds leaves me feeling exactly how the Bruins felt - Bewildered.

Just look at the Cover - man in Red jersey with Cup aloft - I still find it impossible to believe that this is EXACTLY what you get for the ENTIRE 53mins.....so I can't accuse them for false advertising (lol)

Sorry Black Hawks - Monopoly just seriously kicked your butt today - and it wasn't even close or dramatic like your Stanley Cup campaign (that this documentary completely IGNORES)

However, If you are a Black Hawks homer, crack open a beer and pour it over your head and yell and scream into your TV. I'm sure you will have a good time with 17 seconds.

As for the rest of us and for your sanity - stay away from this, you have been warned
