Ripley's movie review

It's a damn good thing real hockey games aren't filmed that way. Nobody would watch. And am I the only one who thought it was odd that the majority of the real players ended up in the financial business?

Good movie with all the required heartstring pulling and rah rah patriotism. Russell was great, the "players" were ok, and despite the fact that nobody seemed to know how to pronounce "Tretiak", it was worth watching.
