Audience Reviews for The Russian Five

  • Jul 08, 2019
    A nice documentary about a once prosperous American town on a serious economic downturn that finds solace in the adventures of their local hockey team. The team, the Detroit RedWings, takes a chance in the drafting of 5 Russian players (in a time when Russians were viewed suspiciously) that eventually manages to turn the doldrums of the team around. Interestingly enough, for a movie that roots itself in hockey, that hockey itself is not the particular focus of the piece, but rather how the playing of the game effects the lives of the players themselves and the town they work in. Truly heartwarming, especially in that it does not actually try too hard to do so.
