Critic Review - Combustible Celluloid

The movie's principles are seriously out of whack, even as it angles toward a Big Life Lesson about learning to live with falling short of greatness.

Like I said to Mr. Macklin, this film is does well in that it's not about "falling short of greatness." In most football movies, greatness is achieved and the difficulties of the game are not truly displayed; which leads kids to believe if I play football, excellent things will happen and I will not get hurt. However, this film does a great job in showing how hard football is--especially at the competitive level--from opening day camp to the finals against Carter. The accurate portrayal of football's obstacles in said movie is what makes it great.

Mr.Morris is absolutely correct; Mr.Macklin and yourself know nothing of true football. This movie is a masterpiece to any true football player/coach.
