This story has been told many times in different situations. Like Broken Arrow before it, and others, a group of disenfranchised young people with challenging backgrounds take on an elite minority sport to build their confidence and give discipline.
The lead character disconnected from their family with other opportunites to escape. The experienced old time come mentor. The group of characterful unrelated young people who band together to support each other.
The story is cliched, the script standard, the acting is good across the board, the filmography is Saturday matinee.
However, why do we have to have special effects and gun fights when we can have something wholesome and feel good. RUGBY!
There are the usual lessons in this movie but they are told around a sport which prides itself on community, respect and inclusivity.
I enjoyed it for what it is and not for what I wanted it to be.
