A very good movie that accurately portrays the life and times of the late seventies and early 80s.

The acting is first rate (especially by Kurt Russell and Patricia Clarkson), the "acting" hockey players are believable, and the cinematography is ahead of its time.

I like to watch this movie for inspiration and I think kids of all ages can appreciate this film.

One of my all-time favorites. Compelling storyline, engaging characters. I love how they spliced in footage from the actual 1980 game during the final game scenes.

Even though this film is very much in keeping with the usual Disney Entertainment philosophies, it is still an inspirational film and worth a look. It could even be used as a motivational tool. For anyone too young to have seen the 1980 Olympics or to have known about world events at that time, the film also serves as a bit of a history lesson. Would work well for a family movie night with kids 9 and over.
