WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
They’re fierce, mad, and ready to beat the crap out of each other. They’re quadriplegic rugby players. MURDERBALL is a documentary that peek into this relatively unknown world of hardcore impaired sports. Just because these guys are disabled, doesn’t mean they’ll let up.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
This movie really came out of left field. It features 86 minutes of adrenaline, hope, loss, comedy, sex, tears, and the kitchen sink. MURDERBALL really is an emotional journey of men who lost their ability to walk, but have relegated themselves to the Olympic arenas of Athens. These guys are mean and tougher than Russell Crowe and they have gladiator style chairs to boot! Those looking for an inspirational kick in the ass need to heed MURDERBALL!
THE EXTRAS
Player Commentary Featuring Mark Zupan, Scott Hogsett, and Andy Cohn: These guys are incredibly likeable and generally shoot the sh*t during the commentary. It’s kind of cool because the documentary is about them and you get to hear directly from these guys.

Filmmaker Commentary Featuring Jeff Mandel, Dana Adam Shapiro, and Henry-Alex Rubin: This group mulls around different topics from the movie’s theme and message. Some good things are here such as hearing the viewpoint of the makers of the documentary on what these guys do behind the scenes.

CNN Larry King Live Interview: Good ‘ol Larry has on Zupan, Hogsett, and Cohn to shoot more sh*t and promote the movie. Funny thing is, there’s no air conditioning!

Jackass Presents: Murderball Featuring Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O and Mark Zupan: By far the funniest and most entertaining feature on the DVD. I don’t really need to tell you what to expect, other than I laughed my ass off!

Murderball: Behind the Game: Lasting only about 20 minutes, this is a more “intimate” look at the sport from the key players. There is a little re-cap but not as much as most EPKs.

Joe Soares Update Interview: Joe answers some questions that you may have after viewing MURDERBALL. This is a great addition to the DVD.

NY City Premiere: This is a quick glimpse at the premiere where the guys rag on each other.

THINK MTV Disability Awareness: Come on guys! This is total cheese. The movie did a great job and now MTV has to ruin it all.

Deleted Scenes: These are all very much forgettable.

Finally there are a collection of trailers for THINKFilms.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
One of the best documentaries of the year also receives a healthy dose of DVD extras. Get off your ass and check out MURDERBALL
