Insightful but sometimes also sentimental.
A great expose on Murderball, aka Paraplegic Rugby. Does a masterful job of showing the people behind the characters, as well as the teams behind the rivalries. For anyone who thought Football players were the toughest dudes on Earth, give this flick a watch and see if you still come out with that POV.
Very inspirational movie. Very entertaining and great for a sports movie.
Emotional, intense, exciting, and it's a documentary...
his is one high energy,action doc with Zupan just taking over every scene he's in.
Very accurate portrayal of life in a wheelchair.
A massive triumph of the human spirit in the face of enormous physical adversity, Murderball is heartwarming, hilarious, heartbreaking, and ultimately heroic. You will never view a physically handicapped person the same way after watching this film. Everyone should see this movie.
Interesting documentary but I was expecting something a bit more edgy due to the name mainly. I think documentaries are supposed to tell you something you don't already know and this doesn't do that.
The U.S. and Canadian teams of quadriplegics compete in a rugby-like game called murderball in the paraolympics.
The first impression of some of these people is not positive, but nonetheless interesting: they come off as testosterone-fueled assholes, but they're in wheelchairs, so all expectations of this being a feel-good Lifetime after-school special are shot to the moon the first time an paraolympian tells a story about threatening to kick the ass of a random bar patron. But as the film goes on, we get underneath the veneers of these players. There are a few vulnerabilities, but what they want more than your pity is your respect, your fear, and your recognition that their injuries do not threaten their masculinity.
The film tries to fashion a sports story out of its subject, but it doesn't work. There isn't a lot of suspense in the games' outcomes.
Overall, documentaries often open worlds that we never imagined existed, and what is true of those documentaries is doubly true of Murderball.
A tough edgy documentary about the intense world of Wheelchair Rugby & the incredible personalities that make up team USA.
This film focuses in individuals & their stories & how they not only deal with their injury but how they move forward & eventually excel.
One particular gentleman who was world champion many many times now coaches Canada & the rivalry in so intense. A touching honest film that was a pleasure to watch.
