The Rock plays a counsellor at a detention centre who forms his charges into an American football team. They go on to considerable success, learning self-respect and self-confidence along the way.
What begins as a series of pleasant revelations and a deft example of genre defiance is nearly crippled by cliche in its second half, but The Rock's surprising dramatic magnetism will hold you until the final whistle.
