There's little room for tears in the testosterone-riddled territory of quadriplegic rugby. "Murderball" spat on that power of the human spirit stuff and rolled along to a kick-ass showcase of not what spinal injury excluded, but what it enabled.
The quadriplegic rugby sport referred to as "Murderball" is lovingly examined in a well-crafted documentary that goes a long way toward showing the mental and physical fortitude of these wheelchair bound athletes who insist on living life to the fullest.
Filmmakers Henry Alex Rubin and Dana Adam Shapiro wisely chose a high-energy aesthetic to portray quadriplegic rugby (a.k.a. "Murderball") through the story of Mark Zupan and his American teammates battling for Paralympic gold.
Murderball doesn't want you to feel sorry for anyone. It wants the viewer to see them for who they are, not what they aren't. They're athletes with the same drive and passion for their sport as other athletes.
