4/10: Hmmm... Yeah... Ummm.... So the...

Hmmm... Yeah... Ummm.... So the acting by the young high schoolers was pretty atrocious. Hopefully it isn't a reflection of their talent, and is more a reflection of the fact that none of them have actually ever been competitive athletes and/or come from challenging backgrounds themselves. I don't fault them that. But it does bring the overall believability of this true-to-life film down. The only character I would say was believable (and was well cast) was the head coach. And they just over did it with his motivational speeches. Solid messages, but few good coaches would ramble on that long. I got the distinct impression that every other 'fan' that was given significant coverage in this film, family members and such, were actors that are indeed among the 80% of the population who have never had any interest in sports as fans or otherwise. And that includes Fishburne. Not sure why he took this part...

It's ok, but could be better Ok, so let me start off by saying that I live in Abilene Tx where this was shot. I went to the same High School and I remember this football season. I enjoyed watching the movie for that exact reason. They made our city look like an inner city, which it isn't. It's a pretty nice city, but kids can get mixed up in drugs and gangs like any other city. This city doesn't chew you up and spit you back out. It was interesting to see what these kids went through though and the hardships they overcame. That win was amazing for those boys and this entire city. I'm not sure if anyone outside our city would enjoy this movie, its not as great as Remember The Titans, but it might be a good rental for a boring night.

Soooo glad we watched this gem. I had no idea what this movie was - my husband picked it out, so I had no preconceived expectations or notions at all.Let's just say I'm not a huge football fan although I know enough and I can follow the plays. By the end of the movie, I was sitting on the edge of my seat, practically hitting my husband with excitement, as if we were in the stands.What a pleasure to see teenagers with such beautiful values and morals (and faces and bodies. Oops - did I say that out loud?). And we really appreciated not being bombarded with offensive language.Gee, they really do still make good movies.

Truly inspiring! I can't speak for everyone but I actually really enjoyed this movie! There were a lot of great actors, and several scenes really provoked emotion. All in all, I loved it. I think they did a really great job!
