Slapdash not a slapshot
3 April 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Mattie is a high school student with prospects in the NHL. However his town in Nova Scotia is racially divided and tensions are high. Mattie's brother is already in the wrong side of the law, Mattie himself is in a tentative relationship with a mixed race girl. However she has a white boyfriend who hangs around with friends who are racists. On of them calls his coloured teacher, an ape.

Director X is better known for his music videos, however the writing in this movie is like a student essay at times. Weak, cumbersome and predictable. It is lacking in nuance, subtlety and even intellect.

Mattie's dreams are in danger of being shattered because of bad lack and being in the wrong place at the wrong time on too many occasions. In fact every white folk he meets, the random police officers he encounters have basically got it in it for him. Even the sports coach at college calls him derogatory names.

The film is even handed as to who is good and bad, there are few saints and more sinners in this film but the message is too simplistic and blunt.
