The Way Back (2020)


STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) An alcoholic & grief-stricken high-school basketball legend seeking redemption by returning back to his school to coach the basketball team. Ben Affleck perfectly fitted the bill.

 

CONS –
1) There is one such high school coach-centered sports drama every few years. This ain’t Lean on Me (1989) or Remember the Titans (2000).
2) Tediously formulaic.

 
QUOTE –
I want every one of you to reach in your shorts right now and tell me if you find a pair. ‘Cause right now, you’re playing like a bunch of fucking pussies.
