When the Game Stands Tall: A good attempt spoiled by pathetic film making style

Certain movies will have a very promising plot and premise, but it will be shattered by some bad film making procedure. 'When the Game Stands Tall' is one such movie which has a good plot that can be developed in to a classic, but Thomas Carter spoiled everything, and he made one of the worst movies which hit the screens in 2014. The rating of 18% in Rotten Tomatoes clearly symbolizes the mediocrity of this sports drama film, and audience have already said a big blatant NO against this half baked product. Now, let us discuss the movie in detail.

'When the Game Stands Tall' is a typical sports drama which is capable to raise your adrenaline rush if made wisely. The film portrays the story of  legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur. He took the De La Salle High School Spartans to new level of success and glory. The school was facing defeats from all corners, and in this juncture Bob takes charge, and he takes the team to a 151 game winning streak which is still an unbreakable record in any American sport.

The director spoiled a golden opportunity to make a movie with perfection. The actors tried their best to carry the movie in their shoulders, but they failed miserably. Jim Caviezel is the only saving grace of the film, and the movie gains a watchable status just because of his fine performance as the lead character. “Go and watch 'When the Game Stands Tall' if you have unending free time in your schedule'.
