DRAFT DAY (2014) – My rating: 8.5/10

DraftDayI am not a fan of football.  In fact, I think if should be outlawed along with boxing because of the debilitating injuries incurred by the players.  There’s a lot of documentation on the whole brain vs helmet study.  It is truly a serious problem within the sport.  Having said that, Draft Day made me want to go home and tune into a live football game.  Kevin Costner plays general manager Sonny Weaver for the Cleveland Browns.  Through the first half of the movie, we were clueless just like Sonny Weaver.  His thoughts were controversial on every level of draft choices.  You really didn’t have any  idea of what was going to happen or how the process worked.  However by the end of the movie, I could hardly stay in my seat.  The thrill and excitement of manipulating other organizations plus how deals were made was more than I could stand.  The outcome was totally unpredictable.  I loved it!  Just to see how it all comes full circle was sheer Heaven. I enjoyed Jennifer Gardner as the girlfriend of Sonny Weaver and all the folks who made up the supporting team.  Every sports team has it’s back office that makes all the decisions regarding trades, draft picks, salaries, contracts and offers.  It’s exciting to see an experienced wheeler dealer at work.  I was thoroughly entertained and highly recommend Draft Day whether you are into football or not.
