Gridiron Gang Premier

Thanks to kitkat_nap who was able to get me into a premier of "Gridiron Gang" starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

He was there to say a few words since the showing was sponsored by After School All-Stars, for which he is the national spokesperson.

I grabbed some pictures, sorry they are so grainy though. It was in a movie theatre with the lights down really low, so this was the best I could do without resorting to flash.

About the Movie
I have to say, that I really enjoyed the movie.

It's obviously one of those movies the is designed to inspire and show that one man can make a difference.

I felt that the movie was different in that, it wasn't just your typical movie in which the "hero" saves these kids and that's it.

There's actually quite a lot of heart and shows the adversity that these kids have to go through. Yah yah, it still sounds like your typical movie, but still I liked it.

Granted it was a little cheesy, but it was good cheese.

And this is someone who doesn't like football or football movies. So that's saying something. :)

A really nice touch was during the ending credits in which clips of the documentary that the movie was based on was shown. They showed the real kids that the movie portrays.

I dunno how the movie will do for the rest of the public, but I hope it does well and I honestly think it's worth seeing when it comes out September, 15th. :)
