We watch this movie many times a year. My kids LOVE it! The message is great. The mature themes that give it a PG-13 rating are dealt with well in this movie. The consequences of poor decisions are addressed - so unlike the typical movies today. But if you do have a problem with your younger children watching PG-13, get the ClearPlay DVD player. Love that technology!

This movie was awesome! I highly recommend it to anyone. With sadness, humor and The Haka it was a great pick!

Wonderful movie. True story of a rugby player who goes through some rough times. This movie has a wonderful ending between father and son. I especially love the Haka or war chant. Always gives me the chills. This is a movie that I think everyone will enjoy.

This is a movie that is is really good. It isn't a fluffy piece thrown together like so many others. Loved it--especially knowing that it's based on a true story.
Great family film.

This was a wonderful movie that was able to reach even nonmembers!! I was very happy that it showed some "real life" situations involving teens. I was concerned that it would be "too Mormony" for my nonmember friends but they all loved it so much! My husband is a trainer and he trains teenage athletes. The ones that have seen this say this movie is in their top favorite sports movies of all time. What a great storyline and motivator for kids to make right choices!!

Our family loves this movie! We have also been able to share it with many non-member friends including the football coach who then showed it to the football team. A great movie with a great message!

Our family loves this movie. What's great is that even people who aren't of our faith still enjoy it. The message behind it is a wonderful lesson and is great for teens. We love this movie!

This movie really opens my world of sports. I never thought rugby was so cool! This movie deserves two thumbs up. It's about a boy who is really going down the wrong path. He turns his life around in a detention center. He is given the opportunity to play rugby to get out of the detention center for times. After he gets out of the center, he is determined to stay FOREVER STRONG. This movie is great and I recommend it to you.

movies do not come along enough today which inspire, teach the lessons which each of us need to learn to succeed in this mortal life.
the lessons taught in the end are what each should teach our children, ourselves and others.
watch the extra's at the end of the DVD.
good to use in YM/YW

Oh my word. I absolutely loved this movie. It was just wonderful! So good, with a great message. It hits hard for teens and young adults my age, and I am so impressed with how this young man handles the situation he finds himself in. Love it!
