A sport film is an animated film genre which makes use of sport as the main theme of the movie. It is typically a fictional production where a sport, particular sport, player, or fan of sport are heavily involved, and that depend greatly on sport for their central plot resolution or inspiration. As the name suggests, most of the time these movies take place in sports and games. The best examples of such movies include the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Batman, Superman, The Matrix series, The Lord of the Rings, and Jurassic Park. Usually the story revolves around a sport but occasionally it switches to other fields as well.
A major part of a movie’s plot involves its characters’ struggle with fairness, balance, and right and wrong. This is especially important to note in a sports film as it is critical that the characters be both fair, as in a fair play movie, and just as powerful, as in a villainous one. Most of the time, in a fair play movie, there is some kind of controversy or other activity that highlights the characters’ ability to act in a just manner. However, in most sports fictions, the characters rarely have any such conflicts to deal with, and so most of the time the focus is not on the characters being fair, but rather on them being powerful and using their power to get ahead. Sometimes this power is used in a negative way, but that is usually the exception rather than the rule.
There are many different genres of sports movies. In general, the most popular are comedies about sports people and how they deal with various conflicts within the game itself, including the sport itself. There are also action-adventures about athletes fighting each other and the audience cheering them on, though this does not necessarily have to be related to a sports event. The best examples of this genre are the Rambo movies, where he is seen as an agent of some sort, and the recent Fast And Furious series with Vin Diesel as a bumbling motorcycle chaser. A sport-based film like this can be quite successful if it manages to strike a balance between comedy and drama while still maintaining some sympathy for the characters.
