Bullrider

This competent sporting documentary isn't just aimed at rabid bull riding fans. It's aimed at rabid Christian bull riding fans. The film follows three would-be champions to the 2004 Professional Bull Riders World Championship, showing the dedication and danger that go into the sport, but mostly talking about how darn Jesus-loving these boys are. Although the film doesn't hammer home any particular message, the religious angle ends up undercutting the film's drama just a little bit. The unwavering faith these cowboys display wipes away any hint of doubt or fear--which makes it a little hard to get worked up over what might happen to them. The film won't exactly recruit a lot of new fans to the sport of bull riding, but God-fearing, pickup truck-driving Bush supporters will probably dig it. 90 minutes PG.
