As we all know, life can be extremely difficult and overwhelming at times. The pressures of daily life cause many to loose all hope and give up. If you ever find yourself at that point, run do not walk to your video collection, local library, nearest video rental joint; whatever be the case and GET THIS MOVIE, insert the disc and let the cleansing of your soul begin. The beauty of this movie is that it takes us all to those "gut check" personal moments, circumstances, and emotions that we have all deeply felt at some point in our lives and through Rudy's triumphs, we the viewer triumph with him. Others have mentioned the fact that this is the type of film that can change a persons live...so true is this statement. To simply downplay this film’s relevance as an “inspirational sports movie” would be unjust. It is a bold and honest portrayal of one mans undying perseverance to be who he needs to be no matter what the odds. This is simply one of the greatest inspirational life movies of all time. BRAVO Rudy !!!
