a well done sports movie (and it's not a slapstick!)

First of all, I'm not the most knowledgeable hockey fan. I'm also a little too young to really remember much about the Olympic games portrayed in this movie (plus I was in Texas at the time). I do have several avid hockey fans for friends. Does that give me the clean slate advantage for this film? Maybe so, but I think even die hard hockey fans can find something to like in this one.

First of all, real hockey players made up most or all of the actors on the team. Second, particular attention was paid to mimicing details of the games and even plays. Throw in filmmaking's usual emotion evoking tools and a solid performance by Kurt Russell and you come out with a well done movie.
