This is what a sports documentary is all about. Not the standard, traditional sports film about some down and out team or the singular focus on one great sports figure. Murderball was a surprising documentary when I first saw it years back that had a compelling human interest side, but never really looked down on the subjects. Even though the wheelchair rugby players are confined to their disabilities for life, it’s not a story about how their disability has taken their life away from them, but rather how it has given them the motivation and drive to do something more.
