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. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Sep 20, 2012

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. – John Anderson, Variety, Sep 21, 2012

Fresh: A complex, determined look at one of the most pernicious problems facing organized sports on all levels ... – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2012

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.

Fantastically Done!

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.
