Phil’s Top 5… Sports Underdog Films

Phil’s Top 5… Sports Underdog Films

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Sports Underdog Films!

 

Close but no cigar: Kingpin, Tin Cup, Million Dollar Baby, Rocky Balboa, Moneyball

 

5 – Bloodsport
Yeah so Dux maybe a martial arts expert, but chased by the military, entering a no hold barred tournament never won by a Westerner  before, the odds are firmly stacked against him.  Love Bloodsport.

 

4 – Cool Runnings
A true (ish) story, Cool Runnings is one of the most unbelievable stories ever told.  Featuring a great cast (including the late John Candy) it’s a heart warming tale.

 

3 – Major League
Cheesy for sure.  But when Wild Thing kicks in, there’s not one person watching the film that doesn’t feel their heart pounding.  Charlie Sheen’s never been better.

 

2 – Rocky
THE sports underdog film, still rating up there as one of the greatest films of it’s time.  An Oscar winner with a career defining performance at it’s core… few top it.

 

1 – The Karate Kid
For me, even more so that Rocky, The Karate Kid is the quintessential sports underdog film.  Greta montages, cheesy music and Elisabeth Shue.  Say no more.
