Product Overview

Football is a game that knocks you down then expects you to get back up. Life hit the West Virginia town of Huntington and its Marshall University even harder. When it did Jack Lengyel came by to help pull them onto their feet by taking the job no one wanted: rebuilding the Marshall football program only months after a plane crash wiped out Marshall s beloved Thundering Herd. Matthew McConaughey portrays Lengyel the energetic compassionate coach of inexperienced players whose chances of victory are slim and none. They ll go with the slim. And as they do their true-life story of heart healing and football will thrill and inspire you. It s game day. Time to play till the whistle blows!Running Time: 131 min. Format: BLU-RAY DISC. Genre: DRAMA. Rating: PG. Age: 085391117605. UPC: 085391117605. Manufacturer No: 111760

Review Even the most cynical viewers will have a hard time hiding the lump in their throat while watching the enormously moving football drama We Are Marshall. If it feels like Hollywood's gone to the mat one too many times with inspirational sports stories, this latest entry is distinct and well-made enough to separate it from the pack. And if the movie unabashedly wears its heart on its jersey sleeve, it's so sincere and honest that it rightfully earns its tears...What makes the story less formulaic than it may sound is the drive and creativity the characters use to achieve their thorny goals. Also, the film is charged with so much vivid emotion and urgency it's impossible not to get swept up in it all. Most importantly, it won't take a sports fan to appreciate the movie's vast merits, which is not always the case with this sub-genre...We Are Marshall (named after the team's stirring chant) is a memorable, deeply felt tribute that scores serious points despite its few fumbles.

Review We Are Marshall is precisely what one expects from a true sports story: it's uplifting and inspiring. Although the film does not ascend to the pinnacle of its genre (arguably occupied by Hoosiers), it's not too far down the mountain and the added ingredient of a town's grief allows director McG to explore some issues not normally tackled in this sort of motion picture...As feel-good stories go, this is more successful than some of its higher profile multiplex competition...It's easy to become cynical about true-life sports stories. There are too many of them. Most appear to be clones of one another and, after a while, it's almost impossible to tell them apart even though they may not all represent the same sport. I don't know if We Are Marshall is sufficiently different to stand apart after the passage of time, but it is well-made and tells a story with a degree of emotional resonance. For those who appreciate the genre, this is worth seeing.
