Synopsis


Gridiron Gang
The true story of the football team that proved sometimes second chances can make a difference comes to the screen in director Phil Joanou's tale of self-respect and social responsibility on the gridiron. Sean Porter (The Rock) is a detention camp probation officer who oversees the inmates at Camp Kilpatrick in Los Angeles and isn't willing to simply write off the violent offenders who have been placed in his care. Though their prospects for the future are decidedly bleak, Porter is convinced that if he can just get through to his adolescent inmates they may finally be able to turn their lives around and make amends for the mistakes of their past. When Porter's proposal of forming a high-school-level football team at Camp Kilpatrick meets with skepticism and resistance in the highest ranks, the determined coach puts his career on the line to prove that even convicted criminals can acquire the tools needed to build a brighter future when given the proper motivation and the means of doing so. Inspired by filmmaker Jac Flanders' 1993 documentary of the same name, Gridiron Gang features a screenplay penned by In the Line of Fire scribe Jeff Maguire, and features a supporting cast that includes Leon Rippy, Kevin Dunn, and Detroit-born rapper-turned-actor Xzibit. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Great movie. One of the best of 2006

    would recommend this movie for anyone who wishes to watch a film that shows true emotion, that shows real characters overcoming obstacles in their life's. This is without a doubt, The Rock's best performances in a movie. So if you enjoy a hard-hitting, emotional underdog story, then pick up The Gridiron Gang, because it won't disappoint. Absolutely awesome movie in my opinion. Its worth your money.

    If You Smell What The Rock Is Cooking

    I smell it and its great. The Rock gives a stunning portrayal of junveilal officer that wants to change the system. If The Rock does more movies with this type of emotional feel, he might become the first ever wrestler turn actor to be looked at for an Oscar Nomination

    Inspired by true events, a tough probation officer takes a bunch of juvenile delinquents and turns them into a football team. It's an underdog overcomes adversity story, but with so much more to it!
