GREATER (Limited Theatrical Release USA 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Greater relies on the acting of Neal McDonough, Christopher Severio, and Leslie Easterbrook. The movie has some transitioning challenges between present and past scenes so that an audience may be confused. It takes several seconds to resolve the confusion and definitely downgrades the effectiveness of the story.

Storyline

It’s a biographical drama about walk-on player, Brandon Burlsworth.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It is what it is. This film will run the gauntlet between like/don’t like. Either way it is watchable, especially for sports fans.
