Gridiron Gang (2006) – By Jason S. Lockard

Many people know Duane Johnson simply as “The Rock” from his years in the wrestling business, but something they don’t know! Duane actually can act, when given the proper role! One such film is Gridiron Gang! Now Thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment you can enjoy this film in HD on Blu-ray!

This film is based on a true story and follows former football player and supervisor at Kilpatrick juvenile detention center Sean Porter (Johnson) who sees the lack of discipline, self-esteem and perspective in the teens and proposes to prepare a football team to play in one league. In this football season Porter teaches his players strength, resiliency, and most importantly respect for themselves and others. This journey they find themselves on may just change all of their lives forever!

The film looks and sounds amazing on this blu-ray, but sadly no bonus features are found! This is an inspirational movie, about overcoming obstacles in your path! Duane Johnson is the bright spot in this film! He is a strong lead character! Also watch out for supporting actor Xzibit. Not bad!

While this is a good film it is good to note this is not a Disney’s Remember the Titans. This is a gritty tough and rough film with teens who lived on the street so it is filled with adult language and violence! This is not for the kids!

So if you love stand up and cheer sports movies! If you love the dramas about overcoming obstacles in your life! Check out Gridiron Gang! Head over to and find out how you can get your copy today!
