Under the Stadium Lights 2021 Movie Review
Under the Stadium Lights 2021 movie is directed by Todd Randall and starring Milo Gibson and Laurence Fishburne.
Milo Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) and Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) star in this inspirational true story of a small-town high school football team who beat all the odds to win their state championship.
After a crushing defeat ended their prior season, everyone counted the Abilene Eagles out of title contention.
Facing doubts and personal challenges both on and off the field, it will take the guidance of their team chaplain (Gibson) and a surrogate father figure (Fishburne) for them to realize what they can achieve when they stand united as a team.
In this uplifting underdog story, the Abilene Eagles will once again soar in an incredible comeback that will be forever remembered in sports history.
Abilene High School rallies to the Texas Football State Championship in 2009. Milo Gibson’s son, Milo, stars as the team chaplain, but he has to split screen time with the head coach, making us want to see more of him and his family.
Laurence Fishburne also pops up to run a local barbecue joint, but the rest of the cast feels amateurish, delivering stilted dialog for off-the-field drama.
The whole thing feels heavily edited after poor test screenings overexplaining everything with text cards during the opening and closing credits.
Worst of all, the game sequences rely on old highlight tapes. Rather than reenacting the action, creating a distance with the audience, save the nearly eight bucks and watch Friday Night Lights Instead.
These were my own thoughts about this film. And I don’t have that much to say about this film. I really wanted to enjoy watching a real sports drama film. But it didn’t happen.
They could have done it better than this, but I think they were somehow lazy to improve it and make it more engaging.
So I am going to give Under the Stadium Lights 2021 a D.
