The Synopsis for The 5th Quarter (2011) 720p

In February, 2006, young Luke Abbate accepted a ride home from a fellow student following his high-school team practice. In a severe case of irresponsible and reckless teen-age driving, and over the objections of Luke and the other young passengers, the driver lost control of the car at nearly 90 miles-per-hour, spinning off a narrow road and landing in an embankment some seventy feet below. Luke suffered irreparable brain damage, and died in the hospital two days later - just four days before his sixteenth birthday.

Years ago, there use to be a dramatic Christian TV show called 'Faithfor today', having seen it makes me think that these kinds of newmovies are a bit of a modern version of that genre, dramatic Christianprogramming while at the same time, I have to say, it is not 'overtly'Christian in it's message vs. in comparison say 'Facing the Giants' butonly in that Wake Forest is a Christian University, the "Deacs", DemonDeacons. Also in one scene in the Abbate household, I believe one mightsee a cross on the wall but even that seems a bit unfocused in thebackground and then, there is a short part in the Church but no "BibleThumping" by any means.

One should not be expecting a Hollywood production. You have to thinkoutside the box. The movie has a message and in the end is moving anddoes recount that story well. The football action is fairly well donewhen it shows games. I give it 6 stars as being on the plus side ofaverage. For a "football movie", I'd rate it as about 7 stars actually,interesting when you think of Wake Forest as I do as mainly abasketball power which they are vs. football. It may not be 'Brian'ssong' or 'The Knute Rockne story' but it might be slightly reminiscentof the feel of those movies and I would think of it as being more alongthe lines of 'We are Marshall.' It's definitely worth a try. Yeah andparts of it do make me a bit teary eyed. Also, from a sports angle, theparts with South African trainer Steve Uria are good, it makes me thinkof some of the real exercise parts of the movie 'Hoosiers.' Honestly,if you are into sports, the exercise portions may be something you wantto try for yourself. Wake Forest is more famous for it's basketballteams, even at the football game, I saw some of the student supportersjumping up and down which is something I tend to see all the timewatching basketball games of some Universities like, I've got to sayit, Duke University. So, in the final analysis, I think there is quitea bit to this movie and it is worth watching.

Forgettable would be an overstatement.Reviewed byAbraham GutierrezVote: 1/10

I must say that when renting direct-to-DVD movies, I never do expect anything great (this is not to say that I've never been pleasantly surprised by one in the past). I always make sure to watch these sorts of movies with an open mind and lowered standards.

Sadly, I wish this movie could meet even my lowest of standards.

Firstly, the acting was terrible (at best). All actors seemed to have been hired straight out of some sort of cheaply made orange juice commercial. The overall stiffness and completely off emotional queues were the only things of this movie ever coming close to making me cry. However, the most blatant offender in this film was Aidan Quinn's pathetically over-acted performance.

Secondly, you cannot expect anything even remotely fresh out of this film. Nothing original; no artistic value: Classic "Going-through- turmoil-but-in-the-end-we'll-all-be-alright" Hollywood monotony. There is literally NOTHING special.

Thirdly, they slap the "Based on a True Story" sticker to boot. It's basically a way to make you WANT to sort of like the movie, but really it only made me hate it even more. How dare they defile whoever's story this was based off of with this steaming pile of garbage of a "movie".

Simply put: This was deplorable. A truly, truly horrendous movie.

This is an amateurish movie. This is a waste of a "based on a truestory" movie. -Acting is halfway decent and is not helped by the poordialogue. -The background music/song selection is incessantly annoyingbecause it feels over the top and forced. -Scenes jump all over theplace and lack cohesion. -Even the sports part is about as unexcitingas you can get. I mean how can you screw that up?

Basically it's a bad movie and this is coming from a guy whose a suckerfor this type of inspirational true story/sports genre.

So in closing, is this a half assed review? Yes it is, but you knowwhat, I felt compelled to tell the other side after reading the onlyother review which is clearly biased.
