Glory Road Reviews

Page 1 of 8
Joshua Starnes
ComingSoon.net

Like most sports films Glory Road works best when it is actually showcasing its sport ... off the court, however, it's alternately flat and didactic. Director Gartner goes to great pains to drill the films message in, early and often.

It's a safe and succinct tribute to a powerful true story, a breezy historical drama that aims for the gut more than the heart. And it succeeds in only that dimension, as an inescapably escapist one-course meal. But what history it has to work with.

...reduces a compelling, complex sports story to a fairy tale.

Disney probably issues an instruction manual to directors assigned one of its inspirational sports movies.

'Glory Road' doesn't achieve cinematic glory because it fails to add personality or connect with anything below the surface.

Like a moderately exciting amusement ride; occasionally fun, but after years of riding this same plot, the same old twists and turns get awfully tiring.

Playing out like Remember The Titans for basketball fans, Glory Road is yet another would-be inspirational true story that follows sports-movie conventions.

Glory Road doesn't have any of the individual moments that humanized Hoosiers, The Rookie, and Miracle. It's a feel-good sports movie by the numbers.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

The big game at the end of the film has the momentum and rhythm of a really exciting basketball game. It's just that the 90 minutes that come before that scene aren't so great.

There are far too many "dramatic music" cues - you know, the Aaron Copland-influenced ones that creep in just as the actor is about to say something truly important.

Viewed as a re-creation of a watershed moment, Glory Road is sturdy, efficient, perhaps even worthy. Taken as cinema, however, it falls far short of inspiring.

A disingenuous, disrespectful reduction of a difficult, often-painful plight into a rousing fairy tale.

Why must Hollywood lace every African-American drama with elements of comedy, as if black people find everything comical?

If you have not already seen Remember the Titans or Miracle or The Rookie or Hoosiers or Coach Carter or Rudy or The Bad News Bears or The Mighty Ducks then perhaps you will love Glory Road.

There is simply nothing resembling real life in the film, just basic cable motivations and infantile storytelling that somehow lucked itself into a big screen release pattern and budget.

Gartner makes a hash of the game scenes and must resort to voiceover sportscasters to explain what's happening.

The players and coaches of Texas Western changed the sport of basketball forever; Glory Road accomplishes nothing.

Trying to make a sports movie for the entire family is understandable, but it makes a complicated story like Glory Road feel more like Disney than reality.

The movie tries to push every button and please everyone involved, and its expressway of good intentions is little more than just a patchy re-paving job
