Murberball is about quadriplegics who play full-contact rugby in Mad Max-style wheelchairs - overcoming unimaginable obstacles to compete in the Paralympic Games in Athens, Greece.

This Oscar-nominated documentary is none like the others. Do not expect weepy, tear jerking (perhaps other forms of jerking…opps) scenes about wheelchair bound men. Instead, feel the testosterone-driven MTV style of the violent action of the USA team vs. the Canada team.

Expect not-so-perfect people, angry men, political inferences and some sex action. Murderball shows you the other side of the quadriplegics, so keep your tissue.

The movie feels slow strangely. Otherwise, it is an interesting movie about human spirit triumphing over the body.

Murderball – Against the stereotypes. Against all odds.
