Quad Gods (2024) Tribeca 2024


A look at some of then men who compete in computer games despite being quadriplegic and traveling around in motorized wheel chairs.

If you can take this film for what it is, a look at the three men trying to mae a life for themselves, and not get hung up on the video games, which keeps getting lost, this is a very good film.

You are going to fall in love with Richard, Blake and Prentice, three guys who are doing the thing they love and trying to live independent lives. It's a wonderful statement that just because you're injured you don't have to stop living.

What I loved was that we come to see how giving injured people games to play they can improve their condition. The repetitive motions and the games help rewire their brains and bodies.  Watching the men play you see them getting better.

The one problem with the film is it is put together to make you think the game tournament is going to play a larger role in the film than it is. It's there but it is never the focus.

Definitely worth a look.
