The story of the Miracle on Ice team in the 1980 Olympics It was The USSR vs The .USA during the Cold War
Let's get something straight here....This is one of the finest Kurt Russell performances I have ever seen. No one in this movie is on his level and it's not even close. He fuels this movie with his stern, no nonsense attitude that gets the young team to buy in. I was more than impressed to see his acting in this film.
The movie has the regular cliche that sports movies has but Russells performance outshines it's flaws.
The film also has terrific action sequences and shots. The games look real and I bought in on the sports scenes.
Overall very solid film.
A great performance by Kurt Russell, portraying a man who did things his way and not the way the "board" wanted to do things.
