      We Are Marshall starts out with the tragedy of Marshall’s football team in 1970 (for those of you who don’t know, the plan crashed killing all but four of the football team, as well as most of the coaches and football staff, some parents, and fans, a total of 75 people). It is sad, and rather hard for the movie to recover

      from this horrible event, but it works hard to do that.

      It shows the struggle of the team, the school, and the town recovering from this tragedy.

      This is

      a movie I feel falls into the take it or leave it category.

      I wouldn’t say that it is one that you should or shouldn’t see.

      If you are planning on seeing it, don’t do it if you are already feeling down.

      It isn’t a happy go lucky movie, especially in the beginning, though the ending does happen on a lighter note.
