Rotten: Shares the secret sin of many a pigskin pic: Despite all the macho posturing, the corny story is just as sappy as anything on Lifetime.

Fresh: The father-son relationship that bolts this rugby film together provides the textured backdrop for a sports film that engages

Rotten: Created under the vague guise of "inspirational cinema," Strong is a sloppy, soggy pile of clichs, unable to sort itself out, grow a pair of cinematic cojones, and actually try to subvert some of its rancid formula.

My neices are in love with these young boys, so they made me watch it with them. I have to say it was a pretty decent movie, a little touching. The main character plays rugby for his high school and gets into some trouble. He is sent to juvi where he starts playing rugby for another school and turns his life around for the better, but trouble seems to follow him.

This wasn't Rugby. I have never seen so much man hugging and man crying for a sport that declares itself as the supreme of all modern day testosterone. Aside from the Director trying to show off its actors as cry baby rugby players, the veteran actor's acting was on cue. Yet, I most definitely can't speak for these other people who are what? actors? They did a good job at crying a lot though. Maybe one day they'll become forever strong.
