    After seeing the Murderball movie this was a must read and did not disappoint. "Paul | 2/23/" The book is a little better than OK, but not the inspiring tale I have been led to believe it would be. I don't understand why every new quad gets a copy of this book in some of the rehab hospitals I have worked with.3/5. Better known as Wheelchair Rugby, Murderball is a game created by quadriplegic athletes that is every bit as aggressive as the name would lead one to expect; played with bone-breaking intensity, a typical game of Wheelchair Rugby involves plenty of trash-talking, a few head-on collisions, and the occasional player being thrown from his modified wheelchair.8/

      Parents need to know that Murderball is a documentary that features hard-hitting quad rugby scenes. Shot from multiple angles (subjective and objective), the games and practices are rough, exciting, and sometimes unsettling.4/5. Murderball is getting rave reviews from film critics like Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times, who predicts an Oscar for it for best documentary. It won both the Sundance Audience Choice Award and the Special Jury Award for editing. But the critics got one thing wrong: Murderball doesn't dispel myths and stereotypes. It takes big fat bites out.
