Gridiron Gang (2006)
Ok, so, I am about to lose some or all of any credibility I may have.
I actually enjoyed this movie.
The Rock is an ex College football star turned prison councillor(?), part of a system that doesn’t work. So with many trials and tribulations along the way he turns a group of hoodlum gang kids into a football team, making them, and himself, better people along the way.
Bizarrely, inspired by true events (the real footage with the credits is quite interesting) but i’d imagine there’s some serious Hollywoodisation going on. Yes it’s cheesy, yes it’s formulaic but has some quite shocking moments and of course it carries a good message.
Liked it, probably more than I should have. (I had been drinking neat JD).
