Road To Victory: Film Review by 3rd Dog Script



Everyone must face it, but at what point in time is the question?


Some find it in the darkest corners of their mind or the most unlikely places.

What are the circumstances that lead to real love?

Road To Victory is a love story about a Pre-med football player, Elliot, (Mike Reilly) destined for bigger and better things as a professional. However, he suffers a head injury during a match that leaves him impotent and searching for his manhood. Anna, (Julia Anderson) a stripper who enjoys the pleasures of life meets Elliott at college in a pre-med class, and the tumultuous relationship begins.

This independent film goes beyond the Hollywood version of a relationship and delves into the many layers of life that confront a man and a woman seeking real love. Perfect for couples to glimpse at the depths of commitment, the challenges of ego, and the obstacles faced in the everyday world. Through their tumultuous love affair, they discover love through the beginnings of lust. Lust is wanting, and love is giving.

The cinematography, score, and acting are superb in this professional presentation. Writer, director, and actor, Mike Reilly, delivers a provocative film with vivid realism.

Intelligent, thoughtful, and a well-written movie with compelling performances by everyone involved. Timely… a chic flick and a guys movie!   This film rates a 10 out of 10 for a genuinely independent film.

A 3rd Dog Script favorite, Road To Victory is a brilliantly crafted story that touches hearts and minds!

A Moment In Time

Let this moment in time mark the beginning of your dawn
And as your dawn is filled with the many hues of life
Let the hope of sunrise lead you on
For the brilliance of your day is yet to come.

Although a long bitter night without sleep do you hold
So tenderly in memory, those memories are just colors
That contrast the beauty inside of thee.
Yes, the grace, upon our first meeting I have seen.
The innocence that no man creates but comes forth naturally.

With innocence, my friend, your path is freedom, your
Desires are boundless, and your dreams of no end.
So fear not the unknown and darkness
As it is your destiny to win.

I give you only my words as that is my way,
A bird of thought, a bird of prey.
To create and bring to life all that is in flight,
Yes, a dreamer of the night.
I hope to give to you the wings-of-life
For I too have seen the misty morning of dawn.
Truly a time of celebration but in your heart
You are missing the song in a cloud of haze
That we so eloquently call deliberation.

A moment in time to forever treasure
In the prose of rhyme.
My wish is to capture the essence of
Your feelings on this special day
With a tribute in my special way.
