Murderball is the title of the best movie of the summer, the amazing documentary film, about quadriplegic rugby players. In their own version of the full-contact sport, they battle each other in custom-made gladiator-like wheelchairs, pursuing gold medals and proving to themselves and to anyone who sees them in action that there is life after disability.
From the gyms of middle America to the Olympic arena in Athens, Greece,MURDERBALL tells the story of a group of indomitable, world-class athletes unlike any ever shown on screen.
It is a film about family, revenge, honor, and the triumph of love over loss. But most of all, it is a film about standing up, even after your spirit, and your spine, have been crushed.
If you have the opportunity, see this film.
