The Greatest Game Ever Played
If you enjoy the underdog winning sports films (there has been a ton of them out lately) you will not want to miss The Greatest Game Ever Played. This is the true story about a Twenty year old amateur golfer played by Shia LeBeouf who defeated the raining British champion played by Stephen Billane in the 1913 U.S. Open. With the help of his wisecracking 10 year old caddy he helps overcome social barriers. Almost everything works in this film. The story is engaging, the cast is perfect and there is an authentic feel that transports the viewer to the early 1900’s. There are some minor flaws like a love interest that doesn’t fit and characters that wonder in and out of the movie without an introduction. That cam makes a confusing story and it’s even worse when you’re blind. This is a heart felt film that’s great for the whole family and I’m giving it a B rating.
This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
