Get Ready to Get Angry
16 August 2016 | by gzamorSee all my reviews

Who knew college athletes were getting cheated like this! This film goes into great detail about how the big money interests take advantage of college athletes and leave them holding the bag. I saw it in the theater and was ready to buy it on Blu-Ray the second I left. I'm pressing the order button right now. It opens with the youthful exuberance of the 19- year-old titans, then ends with long-term pain and no additional medical care. Never mind the fact that some of these athletes never agreed to having their likenesses used in video games they didn't see a penny off of. Shame on you NCAA. I hope that these producers tackle another big topic because they have a gift for this style of storytelling.
