The Longest Yard (1974)

Description
The movie is based on a real-life association football game in 1942 between German soldiers and Ukrainian prisoners of war during World War II, known as the Death Match. An ex-football star doing time is forced by the warden to organize a team of inmates to play against (and get pummeled by) his own line-up of guards.

Part prison film, part football film, this violent but outstanding comedy-drama by gifted action director Robert Aldrich explores the brutality inherent in both the American penal system and football.

Very exciting, very witty, and elevated above its action-movie status by Aldrich's deliberate references to Nixon in Albert's characterisation of the warden.

Though The Yard is a terrible picture, I'll admit to having unwillingly enjoyed some of the football practice and parts of the final game -- even though it's much too long.

An outstanding action drama, combining the brutish excitement of football competition with the brutalities of contemporary prison life.

Aldrich...created Paul Crewe just as much as Reynolds did.

The film drags until it reaches the climactic football game, and the contest itself doesn't justify the two-hour run.

The football sequences are excellent, which makes sense given that half of the actors were college or pro ballers themselves.

The original has just the right mix of toughness and humor. Burt Reynolds was born to play incarcerated quarterback Paul Crewe.

What saves it, aside from good performances by Burt Reynolds and a thundering herd of supporting grotesques, is, of all things, a tough, tiny nut of valid social criticism.

Pardon me if I wasn't blown away by all its simplistic machinations and lighthearted appeal to one's baser instincts.
