It's the type of film you might expect to see at a fund-raising dinner or a convention banquet, not in a commercial theater. That said, it's a very well-made piece of boosterism.

Mazzio feels the beating heart of the striver and, as a result, Ten9Eight: Shoot for the Moon never drags, even as it offers an important message to audiences.

A nice story with no rough edges and little of the proper context. Fine viewing for high school business class but nothing more.

This may be an admirable competition, but that doesn't make this movie less self-serving.

There's no build-up or suspense leading to the final showdown, and the details of the projects fly by without registering.
