I was pretty excited about this film based on a trailer I saw. As you can see from the 1.5 stars, I was not much impressed. The film focuses on 4 men telling stories of their youthful struggles for self-respect and -actualization through their various tribulations (see description above). These are interesting biopics in and of themselves, but based on the preview I saw and the title, I expected something more...."universal," which I admit is kinda relative/ambiguous (ie. it could be argued that these 4 stories portray a larger motion of "protagonism"), but, for me, the final product is way too specific, especially since I am of the opinion that any character can be a protagonist; therefore this just seemed really (really really) narrow.
