The Rocket Reviews
Le Rocket, takes a different angle (Its kinda hard to place the Montreal Canadiens as an underdog in hockey, plus as a Leafs fan I would have vomited if they had tried). This is the Biopic about Maurice Richard who became an NHL and French Canadian legend by not only playing the game better than anyone had ever played it before him, but by also being an outspoken critic of a league that held specific prejudices against French players.
Kudos to the filmmakers for using French and English interchangeably throughout, instead of English-with-a-French-accent for the French Canadian players and for also finding and using REAL NHL players who surprisingly did a great job acting (Who knew?). This is a great movie that I enjoyed completely and regardless of who you cheer for, when you see Maurice (Roy Dupuis) knock out Killer Dill (Sean Avery, LW for the NY Rangers 2010-2011) you will cheer.
A Classic sports movie
