My Many Sons (2015/Well Go USA DVD)

Picture: C Sound: B Extras: C Film: B+

Based on a true story, basketball coach Don Meyer is one of basketball's greatest college coaches. Through his coaching, he has lead countless teams to win and become champions, but when Coach Meyers is almost killed in life threatening accident, it will be the coach who needs his team to help him return to the game in Ralph E. Portillo's My Many Sons (2015).

Coach Meyers is known for his harsh and tough love coaching, and is known as the drill sergeant of coaches. More than half his recruits end up quitting, but Coach Meyers doesn't care. Talent brought them there, but only hard work and teamwork will make them a winning team. For those who survive his training/boot camp they will move on and become basketball legends. However more important than winning is Coach Meyers' desire to teach these young men, to teach them to become respectable men. But when tragedy hits their coach, it will be the team's turn to be there for their coach.

This was your typical sports movie, however instead of focusing the players, it focuses on the coach. It is about the spirit of never giving up, especially in sports when an athlete loses their ability to play the sport they love. And in the end, it is about the team coming together when things are at there worse. Better than usual for such a release, Judge Reinhold leads the cast.

The anamorphically enhanced image is too soft for its own good, but the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is more like it, clear and well-recorded, even in the form of this old codec. Extras include a Lipscomb University Video and trailers.
