Gridiron Gang ★★ 2006 (PG-13)

Based on the true story of correctional officer Sean Porter (The Rock), who recruits a bunch of gangbangers stuck in a juvie camp for his football team. Naturally, the teens find hope through the help of the game and their tough coach. Heavily motivational sports cliche; the documentary footage shown at the end, of the real team and the real coach, may be the best part of the movie. 125m/C DVD, Bluray Disc . US Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Xzibit, Leon Rippy, Kevin Dunn, Willie Weathers; D: Phil Joanou; W: Jeff Maguire; C: Jeff Cutler; M: Trevor Rabin.
