This is how good a Kurt Warner movie is

Munich – Kurt Warner’s life story is like a Hollywood movie. The legendary quarterback was passed in the 1994 NFL Draft, and was without a team for years. Warner played soccer in the arena, cleaned shelves in the supermarket and tried his luck with the Amsterdam Admirals in NFL Europe. It wasn’t until four years later when he threw his first passes in the NFL as the third quarterback for the then St. Louis Rams.

But then everything happened very quickly. Just a year later, the 50-year-old won the Super Bowl and became the best player. Warner has been in the NFL Hall of Fame since 2017. Like I said, the story sounds like a fairy tale. Making a movie of it was straightforward. “American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story” was released in the United States on December 25.

When and how the film will be shown in Germany is still open.

American Underdog: Zachary Levy plays Kurt Warner

Warner played Zachary Levi, known among other things from Marvel’s Thor films. Twelve-year-old Bo Hart epitomizes the quarterback in his younger years. Levy told People, “I did everything I could to get it right. With the gist of who Kurt was and who he still is, I tried to do justice to him in the football scenes. I definitely got to the point where I could throw in a few cents.”

However, the exciting complications also helped make the football scenes as impressive as possible. After all, the 41-year-old Levy shouldn’t be exposed to the linebackers chasing the quarterback in the movie. However, the focus of the biography is not the football business, but Warner’s inspiring life story.

Dennis Quaid took another role in a football movie

Warner’s wife Brenda played actress Anna Paquin, while Dennis Quaid played coach Dick Vermeil. It is known that Quaid has experience in football films, in the 1999 film Every Sunday he played quarterback Cap Rooney.

Ultimately, “American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story” became a typical sports drama, the narrative of which follows the well-known recipe. Despite the setbacks, the underdog never loses his faith, and triumphs against all odds in order to finally become a shining hero.

Iman Warner is the subject of the movie

What worked so perfectly with “Rocky” also works with Kurt Warner’s autobiography. Movie reviews are mostly good. Warner himself also loves the film and uses his Instagram account to advertise the sports drama directed by brothers Andrew and John Irwin..

In addition to football, one of the elements in the film is Warner’s Christian faith, which, along with family life, are of paramount importance in the two-time NFL. It’s these two constants that keep Warner believing in himself when he works in the supermarket for $5.50 an hour, when the Green Bay Packers don’t give him a chance, and when he finally loops through Arena Football and NFL Europe recommends to the NFL.

Like I said, it’s a story like a fairy tale. Except that it really happened this way. One can only hope to see “American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story” in Germany soon, too.
