Two Line Reviews - #404

Movie: Glory Road (2006)

Plot: In Texas, a college basketball coach makes heads turn and lips 'psst' when he chooses a team with a majority of Black-Americans. He changes the lack of belief within and outside the team as he steers them on to the pinnacle at the national championships!

What Works?
  • Maybe another film on sports, maybe another one on the blacks - But not preachy, it's racy! That makes this James Gartner film a good watch.
  • The way the team builds up, the way it is motivated and the manner in which the white players understand the occasion and make way in the final evoke respect!
  • Josh Lucas's essayal of the heroic coach Don Haskins is commendable.
Not unusual but deserves the respect!
