  • “When The Game Stands Tall” Falls Short

    “When The Game Stands Tall” Falls Short

    The Box Office August 24, 2014 10:21 pm no comments

    Though it’s not a film that deserves the 18% rating on www.rottentomatoes.com, it’s definitely a forgettable film with very forgettable performances that fall in to the “been there done that” area of sports films.

    Right off the bat before I saw the movie, I was already worried about the change from an R rating to a PG-13 rating. My guess as to why they decided on this action is to lure the people under the age of seventeen in to the movie theater. Which automatically raises eyebrows, seeing as the majority of viewers of the first two films were ALREADY teenagers/early twenties.

    Its pace is flawless, the movie never takes itself too seriously and the characters are just so damn likable. It’s a possibility with the originality in the characters and story that we could be seeing a sci-fi franchise in the making that we haven’t seen since Star Wars. Take the kids, take the girlfriend, take your friends, I don’t care. See Guardians of the Galaxy and have a freakin’ blast. And don’t forget, “We are Groot.”

    Though entertaining at times, Lucy is that film that comes out five to ten times a year that will give you all of the mindless special effects and technology it can possibly give you but without any hint of a decent storyline or even a shred of character development.
