Half the time Hill invites the audience to get off on the mayhem, the other half of the time he decries it.

Fingindo criticar a glorificação da violência e sua utilização como espetáculo, o filme comete os mesmos erros que supostamente condena.

Slap Shot may have done a lot of fast skating and some solid body checking, but in the last period it makes a final costly slip -- and misses its goal.

Newman is literally a diamond in the rough, and it requires a certain forebearance to separate his quality from the surrounding raunch.

An unsually abrasive sporting drama from director Hill.

Slap Shot remains the greatest sports flick of the 1970s.

Often raucously funny and subversive, Slap Shot is one of the few sports movies that is openly contemptuous of its sport, or at least the modern state of it.

It's amazing how great Paul Newman is. Let's admit it : the script for "Slapshot" wouldn't have read any better than your by-the-numbers sports underdog movie. guts and glory farce "Slapshot" plays like a true classic.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Slap Shot" is a sports movie that revels in details of milieu, plot and character. Smokestacks billow white plumes from a perpetually overcast industrial skyline. Everything is old and weather beaten. Every victory is tainted.

There are still some nice touches of absurdist satirical wit hanging out along the sidelines, given extra bite by Dede Allen's superbly pacy editing.

Outrageously fun hockey comedy. I wish the Hanson brothers from this film would come around to body check those other Hanson brothers and their MMM-BOP crapola
