Don?t let the title stop you from seeing this emotionally charged, daring and all together satisfying documentary about the lives and individuals of the US Paraolympics quadriplegic rugby team. This is as entertaining as a documentary can get. This propulsive, high-energy and superbly crafted film successfully juggles intense emotions, macho drive and classic sports movie bravado. The story unfolds as a rivalry between the US and Canadian teams as they prepare for and compete at the 2004 Paraolympics in Athens at the site of the Olympics. Few movies this year or any year will move you as deeply.
An inspirational crowd-pleaser. - The New York Times
