Hoosiers Reviews

Emanuel Levy

An enjoyable, if conventional and manipulative small-town sports melodrama, boasting strong turns from Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper, who received his only acting nomination for his part.

The kind of corny and manipulative pic that makes me glad I'm not a basketball fan.

Hackman is wonderful as an inarticulate man tense with the struggle to curb a flaring, mysterious anger.

The setting in early 1950s Indiana adds nice texture to the story, but the endless games with the usual ups and downs outstay their welcome.

Bobby Knight would not be amused, though Tark the Shark might've had a good laugh at the naive masquerade.

It should come as little surprise that this solid, sentimental movie about basketball is set in Indiana, where babies are given roundballs before they get rattles.

Pic belongs to Hackman, but Dennis Hopper gets another opportunity to put in a showy turn as a local misfit.

Hoosiers works the underdog formula so expertly that it's no surprise the film still has the ability to uplift audiences.
