Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: I managed to last half way through this film before walking out, something I vary rarely do. Nor was I the first to leave. The story was going nowhere fast and the extremely violent and over-macho nature of the 'sport' and characters was irritating me. Cameron Diaz failed to convince as The Big Boss. I am surprised at the age restriction, given that the first half has her walking around the male locker room, with full-frontal male nudity on display, and apparently there are corresponding scenes in a female locker room (presumably the cheerleaders) later on.

Paul Felix: The rating I gave is for the photography. This movie has no story and the excellent cast deserve better opportunities at showing their talents. Oliver Stone has gone a long way from Platoon - unfortunately in the wrong direction. Boring would probably describe this movie the best. Don't waste your money!!!

Ben Carpenter: I thought that the choreography of the tackling was brilliant. The movie keeps your eyes glued to the screen, it is so intense. I really think Oliver Stone has outdone himself.

Leon Myburgh: An interesting though loud movie. Don't go expecting a football story. It is a story about the pressures on people involved with American football. I'm not expert on American football but it does seem to over-dramatise the physical harm the game does to the players. The hand-held camera and quick jumps between different cuts can be off-putting to some viewers. Not a bad movie.

Jeremie Dupont (23): Weird movie.. A bit (a lot ??) confusing. Without Pacino and Diaz, this movie would be pointless..

Nick van der Walt (20): I thought Pacino was brilliant as per usual! I just love movies with sport in them.
