Murderball is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Featuring fierce rivalry, stopwatch suspense, and larger-than-life personalities, MURDERBALL, Winner of the Documentary Audience Award and a Special Jury Prize for Editing at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, is a film about tough, highly competitive rugby players. Quadriplegic rugby players. Whether by car wreck, fist fight, gun shot, or rogue bacteria, these men were forced to live life sitting down. In their own version of the full-contact sport, they smash the hell out of each other in custom-made gladiator-like wheelchairs. And no, they don't wear helmets.

From the gyms of middle America to the Olympic arena in Athens, Greece, MURDERBALL tells the story of a group of world-class athletes unlike any ever shown on screen. In addition to smashing chairs, it will smash every stereotype you ever had about the disabled. It is a film about family, revenge, honor, sex (yes, they can) and the triumph of love over loss. But most of all, it is a film about standing up, even after your spirit - and your spine - has been crushed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll never see a sport like this A terrific documentary about the quadriplegic rugby team. Even though these men were in wheelchairs, that didn't stop them from having competitive spirit and determination to go for the gold! Canada and the United States had fierce rivalry. It was an excellent film, surprisingly with alot of humour and makes you want to feel that every minute of your life should count.
