Two other hockey films are also being screened at North America's largest and most influential film festival: The Last Gladiators, from Academy Award winning director Alex Gibney and Breakaway, featuring Russell Peters.
Honestly, not impressed with the trailer. It looked pretty corny and low budget.
And not that I care, but I think a movie about hockey players who are "...here not to play hockey, you're here to fight" will probably make all the pissy pants stand up and shout, "AND YOU WONDER WHY EVERYONE THINKS HOCKEY IS A NEANDERTHAL SPORT!!!!!"
Looks to be perpetuating the stereotype that hockey is about nothing but fighting. Perfect timing, too, with all the unfortunate recent tragedies that are being attributed to players being "fighters" (not saying they are necessarily related, just that people are trying to connect them).
Filmed in Winnipeg, they were filming the Crowd from the Chicago Vs Tampa Bay exhibition game that was in Winnipeg in September 2010 before the start of last season, 1:03 in the video you can see most of the fans wearing red jerseys lol. Also, shot scenes at Selkirk Arena. The movie itself looks like it could be decent, I kind of gave up on hockey movies once I hit puberty but this one might capture my attention.
