All Critics (34) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (30) | Rotten (4)

  • It's solid and interesting work in the main, but Head Games can't help but feel like a come-down after The Interrupters.

    September 28, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Director Steve James centers this documentary on Nowinski, but there are affecting profiles of various NFL and NHL veterans who are living with the damage -- or may have died from it.

    September 27, 2012 | Full Review…
  • The documentary by Steve James paints a devastating picture of the long-term consequences of head injuries among pro NFL players.

    September 27, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • One of the more fascinating aspects of a thoroughly entertaining movie is how incomprehensible James' proposed changes are in a country where many would list their necessities as food, shelter and Monday Night Football.

  • Finally, there's a sports movie for people who are caught between admiration and fear of athleticism.

    September 21, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Head Games" gains credibility and power from compassion for athletes and respect for their accomplishments. But it also tries to open the eyes of sports lovers to dangers that have too often been minimized and too seldom fully understood.
