It’s been a while since I have had the chance to get a movie worth watching. I FINALLY got my hands on another wholesome family movie worth watching thanks to FlyBy Promotion. We were given [easyazon_link asin=”B00SK3NL2I” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]23 Blast[/easyazon_link] to watch in exchange for an honest review, but I assure you that it had absolutely no impact on our opinion on it. 23 Blast is a movie about a teenage boy who deeply loves playing football, but ends up with an infection that takes away his sight. For the average person, playing football blind would no longer be an option.
That wasn’t the case for Travis Freeman (played by Mark Hapka.) His coach still believed in his ability to play football, but just in a different position on the team. Travis was skeptical just like those around him were too. There were many in the town who thought the coach had lost his mind for having Travis get back on the team. This movie takes you through the journey as Travis learns how to function now that he’s blind. It also shows how the people around him had to gain a totally different perspective too.

My 23 Blast Movie Review
Prior to my car accident in 2006, I never fully grasped how those who were more physically challenged lived their lives and could still do many of the things we do. I always felt like they were helpless and, to be honest, a huge hindrance. I have learned through my physical handicaps that I now have that is the farthest thing from the case.
We ALL still have value and worth. We all can still bring something to the team. It just may mean that the team aspects have to change some to be more accommodating. After all, the real definition of the word “team” according to Define.com is “a cooperative unit”. The only way to achieve that is to learn to work together with others regardless of the challenges you face.
Overall, I feel that [easyazon_link asin=”B00SK3NL2I” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]23 Blast[/easyazon_link] is a good wholesome family movie that your family is sure to enjoy. If you have a love of football then you’re going to appreciate this movie even more. This movie would make a great Valentines gift for him too.
