Two Line Reviews - #420

Movie: Fire in Babylon (2010)

Plot: A documentary that traces the formative and dominant years of the famous deadly West Indian team of the 70-80s: One of the most dominant sports teams ever to have existed! It isn't just cricket; It shows how they won against odds and defeated their masters in their own invention and proved that skin-colour means not a thing!

What Works?
  • True Story; Pace Bowlers; Deadly pace bowlers; Sir Viv Richards; Inspiring tale - Need I say more?!
  • The story of Channel 9's Kerry Packer and his World Series cricket making the windies heroes Rebels and how it made them even stronger is such a nice revelation!
  • To see the heroes of the past speak about how they gave the medicine of Lillie and Thompson back to Australia and how they felt they were only doing their job was great - Their honesty (Roberts especially) bowls you over!
  • Viv Richards' attitude and Lloyd's tenacity : There's just one word for them. RESPECT.
Fiery Rage against Suppression! With a stitched-red rubber and a bat!
