(Review originally written at 27 March 2004)

"Any Given Sunday" is one of those movies were the story plays no part at all. To me it is all about it's style and intensity.

There is no way you can fall asleep during this movie. The pace is incredible high thanks to the many cuts and lots of camera movement. It makes the football scene's intense and gives you the feeling that you are right in the middle of it and it actually makes the games exciting even if you don't understand its rules. An unique experience. There are some incredible intense scene's that never loose their power.

That cast give some excellent performances, especially Al Pacino of course who makes this movie even more intense but also James Woods and Lawrence Taylor give away some nice performances.

Just forget everything else and ignore the story so you can enjoy the unique style this movie has what makes it an unique movie experience to watch.
