Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Head Games" gains credibility and power from compassion for athletes and respect for their accomplishments. But it also tries to open the eyes of sports lovers to dangers that have too often been minimized and too seldom fully understood.
Fresh: One of the more fascinating aspects of a thoroughly entertaining movie is how incomprehensible James' proposed changes are in a country where many would list their necessities as food, shelter and Monday Night Football.
Fresh: A complex, determined look at one of the most pernicious problems facing organized sports on all levels ...
Fresh: [A] powerful documentary about the devastating effects of head injuries in sports.
Every athlete and parent needs to see this
This film begs the question, what are we willing to give up for the sports we love? Every athlete and parent needs to see this to learn the seriousness of head injuries in all sports. A great film.
This was very very well done…. working with athletes on a daily basis myself, it has giving me new information as well as new perspective. I think every athlete should watch this with their parents and their coaches.
