Two Line Reviews - #275

Movie: The Great Debaters (2007)

Plot: A black American professor who fights for the cause of his race, is also determined in preparing a top-notch debate team from his all-blacks Wiley College. They steamroll past the other black colleges & get invited for a debate at the Harvard School. Meanwhile, the prof gets legally entangled for his rebellious ways; The debate team, devoid of its coach prof, challenges the best & triumphs!

  • Denzel Washington's role in the film - be it his direction or his terrific scree-presence - is a huge plus for this morally noble movie.
  • The debate team members fit in their roles to perfection & deliver dialogues with aplomb. Forest Whitaker & other minor role players too sparkle in their limited time on-screen.
  • The camera work is of superior quality & there are some fine praiseworthy experimental angles adopted.
A true story on the Black Upliftment - Inspiring stuff!
