Review – The reason I watched this movie is because I am in a five-hour car ride to Kansas, so I decided to watch this, I did not know a lot going into the film, but all I knew is that it was going to be dirty because of Sean William Scott. And I was really surprised that I liked this movie. The acting was good for who was in it. The story wasn’t all that bad, it was very predictable, but you still wanted to see how it happened. Sean William Scott was a badass in this movie. The one thing that I did not like in this movie, was that there had to be a relationship problem in this movie. If you took out the relationship part in the movie, the movie would be the exact same. But the overall action in the movie made up for it. The fighting sequences were really cool, and the slow-motion camera effects was really effective for the scenes. The “bad guy” in this movie was really badass, and I put the quotes around bad guy, because people thought he was a bad guy, but he was actually a good guy who had a bad reputation. Honestly, if you are a fan of a gritty, funny, sports movie, this one is for you and I highly recommend to go watch this one. I give this a 4-5 stars.
