  • 5 stars "Excellent movie. Bravo to Dr. Bennet Amalu for his amazing work. All parents should read up on his findings before considering in sending their children in a sport such as football. Will Smith did an amazing job as did the rest of the cast. I was certainly enlightened but upset to know that nobody is taking this seriously!!!"
