5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Ending to Ducks Trilogy, 7 April 2007
This review is from: D3 - The Mighty Ducks [DVD] (DVD)
I loved hockey, the movies got me into it and I loved the whole Ducks movies, but this is my favourite installement.

D3 is good but perhaps not that believable. Charlie Conway is the star of the team, despite being called "Spazoway" in the first movie because of his lack of ability. Even with the ringers who helped Team USA win the Junior Goodwill Games in D2, they are outmatched by the Varsity team. The only consistance is that Adam Banks is still thought of as excellent and moved up to Varsity straight away. The film has many comparisons to the first film, lots of references to Banks as "Cake-eater" despite not mentioning that in D2 hardly at all, and that Goldberg struggles to skate despite looking proficient at skaing throughout the first two movies.

The movie is written as the final chapter, and the main themes are that effort brings about success and winning is not the most important thing. Also, you get a sense of growing older and things changing, this is covered alot in this movie as by the end the team are not known as the Ducks. The actors who have played the kids in the first 2 movies are given much bigger parts, probably because the allure of people coming to see the movies are to watch how they have grown up. Melancholy in places, this is more of a grown-up film than the first two.

There was rumours of D4, but this trilogy is probably best left alone as a classic sporting family set of movies.
