Excerpt: Even if your not into golf like me this is a very good film about the rise of young Francis Ouimet who won the U.S. open in 1913 and became an unlikely sports hero. The film is a great character study of one man's dream and determination against difficult odds. Bill Paxton YES!
Excerpt: Hadn't really seen this movie all the way through, just caught snipplets here and there when it was shown on ABC. This is a very nice transfer, acutally its better than "Eight Below" and "The Prestige", which were both complimented on their fine transfers but this is just a step up from them.
Excerpt: Thank you Blu-Ray.com for reviewing this film. Because, for some odd reason, I had never heard of it. Well, I just rented it from Netflix and everything you said is true. What a wonderful wonderful movie. And the picture quality is just stunning.
Excerpt: I don't know if it is just me but this movie seems to get no respect. Nobody is discussing it and I saw no push for it's blu-ray release. I'm glad to see this review on here finally and someone else that agrees with me. This is a true underdog movie with a great cast.
Excerpt: I have been waiting almost a year for this movie to come out on blu-ray as the regular dvd had such great video, and it was worth it. The movie is a great movie to see, whether with family or by yourself. Very well told and fun throughout.
Summary: The Greatest Game Ever Played is a film that had great potential, but doesn't use it. It's a bad thing when overlong movies are slow, that's the case here. The Direction by Bill Paxton is Unique, the Screenplay is Average and the Acting is good. but the film is Very predictable.
