It's an unsettling, "Taxi Driver"-like character study that shows the underside to hero worship and the primal world of professional football. Full Review

Washington Post
Siegel's depiction of the film's supporting characters too often borders on caricature. By the movie's strained, overheated climax, it's clear that Siegel, in his directing debut, is less interested in his protagonist as a character capable of transformation than as a human petri dish of futility and pathology.
