Gridiron Gang, The Rock. A counselor at a juvenile detention facility turns a group of young criminals into a football team to teach them self-respect and responsibility. (PG-13) (3:00) FX: Sun noon, Mon 10:00 Gridiron Gang is a 2006 movie starring American Dwayne Johnson, Xzibit, L. Scott Caldwell, and Kevin Dunn. It was filmed in California at Camp Kilpatrick, a Los Angeles County Probation Department facility. It is loosely based on the true story of the Kilpatrick Mustangs during the 1990 season, the first even when they were playing football eleven man.
Camp Kilpatrick is a facility located in Malibu, California for juvenile delinquents with multiple offenses, such as gang violence. Columbia Pictures released him on September 15, 2006.
Sean Porter (Dwayne Johnson) works at the Detention Center in Los Angeles Kilpatrick. Frustrated at not being able to help children overcome their problems in life, such as street gangs and drug deals, he decided to create a football team so that children can feel like they are part of something. Porter believes that football will teach teenage inmates what it takes to be responsible, mature, and winners. It keeps some children in the room he feels will benefit from this program and requires that they practice with him the next day. He told his new team, the Mustangs Kilpatrick, “You are all losers, but if you stay with the program, you can all be winners at the end.” Two teenagers do not agree because they are rival gangs. Willie Weathers (Jade Yorker) is from the years 88 and Kelvin Owens (David Thomas) is from the years 95. The first game is against the best team in the league, Barrington. The game starts quite positive for the Mustangs, as they recover a fumble on the first disc, but things quickly turn. They were demolished by Barrington, losing 38 points. After starting 0-2, the Mustangs start winning games that learn to work together. Kelvin and Willie finally shake hands with each other when they win a game after a touchdown by Kelvin made a big block of Willie. Towards the end of the season, the Mustangs are headed for the playoffs. They are more and more fans and publicity along the path. The film won and 14,414,640 in domestic box office during its first weekend. On June 12, 2007, it reported $ 41,480,851 worldwide.
