Sports movies galore on DStv

By style reporter

DStv’s sports channel SuperSport 1’s festival of the greatest sports movies of all time continues from Tuesday to Thursday this week with Mean Machine, The Edge and Steve McQueen – The Man and his Le Mans.

Archetypal football bad boy Vinnie Jones is the star of Mean Machine on Tuesday, a 2001 comedy-drama directed by Barry Skolnick.

Mean Machine, which also features current action movie favourite Jason Statham, is a fun football romp with its tongue firmly in its cheek and features some ludicrously dirty on-field play from Jones — basically what he was renowned for throughout his professional football career!

Wednesday April 29 is headlined by The Edge, a 2019 documentary film, which shows cricket as you’ve never seen it before.

DStv viewers can round out this month on Thursday with the documentary Steve McQueen – The Man and his Le Mans.

This 2015 film, directed by Gabriel Clarke and John McKenna, focuses on the turbulent production of McQueen’s motor racing classic Le Mans.
