Red Army is slick, witty, fast-moving. Offers a sharp and moving inquiry into the enormous burdens borne by Russia’s national hockey team.” - Hollywood Reporter (http://goo.gl/SQnakW) “I really enjoyed it...it was really exciting [and] emotional. It’s about the KLM line and the Big 5, but it mostly centered around growing up in the KGB and the old Soviet system and everything that went with that.” -Wayne Gretzky on SportsNet Radio (http://goo.gl/D3NmR2)
