Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
North Dallas Forty cynically revealed the underbelly of professional football, examining the fallout when the attitudes and drugs of the early-1970s counter-culture meet the greedy and violent world of the NFL. Nick Nolte is perfect as the complicit but not totally amoral wide receiver with an out-of-order body. Country singer Mac Davis also turned in a fine debut performance as the slick quarterback with too much to lose. With Dallas and his previous film, Who'll Stop the Rain, Nolte gained acclaim for his portrayals of tough but troubled heroes. Director Ted Kotcheff had a moderate string of hits in the 1970s, including The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz.

    LIKE A HELMET TO HELMET HIT

    It's completely unfair to label this a ''sports film'' albeit one of the greatest of all time. This is a powerhouse drama and a riveting indictment of corporate America. One of the nicest acting surprises of 1979 was Mac Davis as Seth Maxwell. He and Nick Nolte play off each other to perfection, like any great QB-WR combo does every Sunday. A haunting soundtrack that should have been released and charted.
