While chronicling quarterback Jim Kelly's battle with cancer, this documentary examines the American obsession with winning and losing through the spectrum of the early 90's Buffalo Bills teams that went to four straight Super Bowls and lost every time. They've been seen as football's ultimate "losers," who if circumstances were different, may have been remembered as the ultimate winners. Written by ESPN Films

No big surprises!
15 February 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Four Falls of Buffalo" has a problem many other installments of "30 for 30" don't have--just about everyone knows that the Buffalo Bills lost four straight Super Bowls. And, considering the title, there really is no element of surprise. Still, as they tell the story, the narration is such that it sounds a bit like they're trying to keep the audience on the edge of their collective seats! No, no matter what they do, the film ends exactly where the audience expects it...with Buffalo losing yet again.

So am I saying this is a bad film? No. It's well crafted, reasonably interesting despite being anticlimactic and there certainly worse ways to spend about 90 minutes of your life. And, on the positive side, the show doesn't completely whitewash the players...I do remember the season just before the Bills went to the first Super Bowl--and I remember that Jim Kelly was a bit of a jerk at that time (and the show acknowledges that several of the stars were NOT acting like team players).
