An inspirational Marine teaches football to private school kids.
4 September 2017 | by kire1975See all my reviews

A colonel in the Marines is forced to retire due to an irregular heart beat. Instead of taking a lucrative job, he becomes a football coach at a struggling Texas prep school and makes it great.

This is a fine film. The lead actor, Kevin Durand, who is one of the finest actors working today. Mostly in supporting roles, which is why most people don't know his name, but if you see his face, he's known from lots of critically acclaimed films. A very tall, physically imposing actor, with a great sense of humor and amazing psychological sophistication as an actor.

This film is a great story too. Very inspiring, if conventional. Based on a true story. It's a sports movie. It is also a sure thing to be a top contender for the best awards in its category. If it won, it would surely deserve it. I wasn't much of a football jock in school, but if I had this guy for a coach, I might have thought differently about a lot of things. Assuming it was a truly true story, and not an idealized sentimental homage to somebody's mentor. But anyway, it was a good story, and I give it my absolute highest recommendation.
