If Mr. Friedkin didn't have to work so strenuously framing two-shots of Mr. Nolte with this seven-foot athlete, it might be hard to remember that Mr. O'Neal has a day job.

Worth seeing for Nolte's force-of-nature performance and the novelty of Shaq "emoting."

A rare example of an entry into this genre that attempts to be honest and unique.

The film is quite entertaining in its own right and Nolte does give it a tremendous boost.

What Friedkin brings to the story is a tone that feels completely accurate; the movie is a morality play, told in the realistic, sometimes cynical terms of modern high-pressure college sports.
