140 Character Movie Review – #140RVW
Typically great behind the scenes footage from NFL Films, focused on the coaching staff as opposed to a by the numbers recap of the season.
Spoiler-free Movie Review of Do Your Job: Bill Belichick & the 2014 Patriots:
This review is likely to be very popular in New England and hated most everywhere else, so I’m not really going to stretch too much here.
Do Your Job: Bill Belichick & the 2014 Patriots is a bit different than other NFL Films productions in that it’s a behind the scenes film about the coaching staff that led to New England’s fourth championship. (They did produce a more traditional season recap film in America’s Game: The Super Bowl that aired earlier this week.)
NFL Films is a wonderful organization with unfettered access to everyone in the No Fun League, but it’s still surprising to see such a reclusive organization as the Pats open up so candidly. Must have required a ton of cajoling of the hooded one.
Ably narrated by Lowell native Michael Chiklis, this examination of the coaching staff is an interesting look into the team, though it will just piss off those who already hate the Patriots.
Do Your Job: Bill Belichick & the 2014 Patriots is a unique and interesting look inside the team and provides insight into some of their more unorthodox choices. Not exactly fun in the way a season recap is, it will be certain to work equally well for those who love and hate the team.
