THE ROCKET will have you cheering!
A hero's story and a love story combined into one. After seeing it the first time, I just can not skip over it when I scroll the remote control to find it playing on the movie station. I seen it more than 8 times and still become enthralled of many scenes including the love of children that he had, his standing up against bullies, his will of winning all within a self depreciative man who many of us have come to view as an hero. No wonder that in 1996, some 46 years after he retired from hockey, Maurice merited the affection of all during the last game in the Montreal Forum. Thank you Maurice.
I was impressed by the picture and the acting.
If you are canadian and a hockey fan you cannot help but love this movie and what the Rocket stood up against.
