Aroview: Tackling the subject of American football with trademark fervour, a mix of film stocks and some frantic editing, Oliver Stone delivers a front-row-like taste of the brutal action in detailing the struggle of the once-mighty 'Miami Sharks'. Plagued by a losing streak and off-field politics, Dennis Quaid, Aaron Eckhart, and LL Cool J take the pressure centre field, while shouting from the sidelines are hard-bitten coach Al Pacino, ball-breaking club owner Cameron Diaz and afflicted team doctor James Woods. This director's cut contains six minutes of additional footage not in the theatrical version.

4 stars (Very Good) A frenetic portrayal of life on and off the American Football field, this Oliver Stone picture is fast-paced with snappy dialogue, interesting visual style, good performances from a varied cast, and insight to all the backstage dirty laundry of the sport.~Tom H
