The Mix Radio Movie Critique on Disney Movie “Safety”

On Friday December 11, 2020 another amazing sports film was released from Disney.  The movie “Safety” was inspired by a true story and filmed on the campus of Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. 

This epic movie was about a former Clemson football player from 2006 Ray McElrathbey, who grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. The lifestyle for McElrathbey was not the best, having to take care of his 11-year-old little brother, Fahmarr McElrathbey, while his mom, Tonya McElrathbey, was in rehab recovering from her drug addiction. 

Ray McElrathbey had a choice to make and it was not much of a choice at all. The choice between playing College Football or the safety of Fahmarr being in foster care. One hundred percent of the time it was Fahmarr or nothing. 

Throughout this cutting-edge movie, it shows the determination and dedication most African Americans face in their day to day lives. African Americans tends to think leaning on someone and asking for help goes against self-respect and pride.  Sometimes that is not the case.

To produce this movie, research was down to a tee. Safety showcased how Ray’s circumstances to NCAA would not make a difference, compared to other student-athletes. Later on, to show the viewer how strong a student-athlete and his team can change the mind of the NCAA board. 

The movie Safety definitely shows an amazing light on Clemson University and their meaning behind the word “family”. 

This Disney movie will have your emotions jumping. If you have not seen this movie the recommendation is that you should!
