Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that 23 Blast is based on the inspiring true story of Travis Freeman, a Kentucky high school football player who went blind -- but, owing to the support of his coach and teammates, was able to play despite his disability. Religion is portrayed as one of Travis's sustaining strengths, in addition to a loving family and loyal friends. Expect the kind of on-field violence normally seen in a football game: Players willfully try to run each other down in practice, and some are sacked by opposing teams hard enough to get hurt. A player has a bloodied hand in one game. But other than that -- and the fact that one of Travis' friends is portrayed as having a drinking problem -- there's not much iffy stuff here, and plenty of positive messages about the payoffs of hard work, teamwork and individual strength.
