Rating: 3.9/5 (11 votes cast)

Murderball is a film documenting the fierce competition between United States and Canada in the 2004 Paralympics that was hosted by Greece.

Filmmaker Henry Alex Rubin and journalist Dana Adam Shapiro offer an up-close look at the 2004 Wheelchair Rugby tournament, as they traced the moves of these teams.

Murderball, better known as Wheelchair Rugby, and an official event in the Paralympics, is a very aggressive game created by quadriplegics who were not limited or restriced by their shortcoming.

It is played with fervent intensity and involves very rough collisions and the occasional bodily fights as the regular Rugby goes.

It shows how Joe Soares, when dropped from the top-seated American team, angrily retaliated by signing on as coach for the Canadian team, and led them to victory amidst upsets and thrills!

The film gives a sneak peek into the personal lives of the athletes who are passionate, motivated, and determined to win — as one of them says, “I’m not here for a hug, I’m here for a medal.”
