People on here are giving this rating a 3 or 4 star rating, but because of streaming quality. The movie is excellent! Affleck did a fantastic job and the directing was a perfect match. Definitely not your typical basketball high school hero coach movie, it's better.

OK - was expecting better.
Verified purchase
Was hoping for better. The whole movie just felt rushed - didn't really go deep into anything. Like they wanted to make sure it hit the theaters in time for March Madness. I felt like Affleck phoned it in. This film had so much potential that wasn't realized. And watching on Amazon Prime, the sound was HORRIBLE. My family has watched several movies/shows on Prime with no sound issues. So, for that part, considering the $20 cost, feel just a bit ripped off.

Movie Great - Service Not So Much
Verified purchase
The story and movie was great and I understand this is a new service but the interruptions and replay is unacceptable. For the sake and interest of finishing the movie we put up with it - i would expect the experience to be the same as watching anything else on Amazon Prime however that is not the case.

audio was awful
Verified purchase
The audio was so inconsistent for this movie. We had to jack it up close to max to hear the dialogue, and was nearly chased out of our house when the crowds were cheering or music was playing. Terrible experience that wrecked the movie.
