An impressive trio with Radio and Titans
Talk about integration, sports, and real life stories, beautiful human interest stories, and we have a trifecta. While Radio and Remember the Titans got their share of theater run, Unshackled is a little DVD gem that I take pleasure in introducing to people. There is a lousy film in theaters called "Friday Night Lights" that can't hold a match to these films. Seemingly on a shoe string budget, Unshackled takes its time and for the first few minutes even tricks viewers into thinking it will be a silly chasing crime flick. The pacing is sneakily on target lulling viewers in with light fare and getting heavy handed and preachy at the end and my group loved every second. The director of the aforementioned theatrical blunder should take note of the character development of this film. Just as in Radio, we close by seeing the real life guy who was portrayed in the movie. Notice the star hero who played a heel in the Titans.
