Critic Reviews for The Grizzlies

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

  • Bracingly unsentimental and transcendently moving at the same time.

  • It's a fascinating puzzle: a film that is simultaneously an indictment of the toxic legacy of cultural imperialism and a weepie that employs the familiar tropes of Hollywood, one of the biggest machines of cultural imperialism on the planet.

  • The fearless and inspiring The Grizzlies gives Canadian film the great sports drama that has long eluded it.

  • It's a movie that tells its story with authenticity and heart, and that makes all the difference. It scores.

  • Who doesn't love a rousing underdog sports drama? Better yet, one based on a true story. And how about one in which team practice takes place in between seal hunts?

  • Each player's personal story and breakthrough is explored with sensitivity and empathy and their hard-won triumphs are sweet. But this is no sentimental journey - its tough and real and fired by that thing we all have inside - hope.
