“Birmingham, Alabama in the 1970u0026#39;s is an infamous city with a lot of racial tension, violence and even targeted bombings. In the middle of all this turbulence, a struggling high school team finds the saviors it is looking for.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBeing an sports film enthusiast, I had high hopes for Woodlawn, especially after spotting Jon Voight (and to some extent Sean Astin) in the cast listing. Unfortunately, the focus in this movie is not on character development, story or action choreography, it lacks quality in all these areas. What it does focus on is religion. This results in a rather poor outcome .u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is not uncommon in this particular genre to see references to a divine presence as a source of inspiration or comfort for athletes that try their best in harsh circumstances. In this particular case though, the presence of the Almighty is far too overwhelming.”
