Sports movies are about more than just games. They're about what those games stand for: playing, losing, growing up, and losing as you grow up. Filmmakers have used fields and courts, rinks and rings, stadiums and billiards rooms to investigate the human condition.
Tears and cheers, wins and losses, hard lessons and sweet victories — sports movies cover a wide range of emotions and maybe as emotionally draining on viewers as they are physically taxing on the actors.
Let's have a look at some of the UNDERRATED SPORTS MOVIES of all time!🥎🥍🏅
