    A decent, if flawed look at life in the football spotlight; a film that makes one wonder if it might not be time to turn down the glare a little bit.

    Ryan Kwanten gives a star making performance in this interesting yet uneven look at the fascination with the football worship in Texas and how it can turn from love to hate by those closest to it.

    Thought this was going to be a "boy" movie about football, but it surprised me. Ryan Kwanten performed really well. And loved that Sheldon from CSI was in it. He so hot!

    A riveting well acted actor's piece. While some of the sub-plots got lost, this is a great Indie movie that shows why popcorn films are for morons.

    This movie was good, not great. The pacing was a little torturous and some of the situations a little farfetched. Ryan Kwanten put on an amazing performance. Otherwise, it mostly fell flat to me.

    A good little story. I love movies that tell very personnal and intimate stories. This film is just that. Seek it out, it's worth it.
