A story about people rather than just one a team going for the win. In doing so, O'Connor makes Miracle one of the more thoughtful and enjoyable films revolving around sports.

Even if you don't know a "blue line from a clothes line," "Miracle" is a thoroughly enjoyable film that unspools like a Robert Altman movie where many characters' individual essences are revealed at once.

Miracle capitalizes on its understanding of team dynamics: the bonding of pain and gain alike, the ownership of integrity over ego, the satisfaction of communal accomplishment. [Blu-ray]

Russell is at his understated best in the film, which stands as a living tribute to Coach Herb Brooks.

Writer Eric Guggenheim and director O'Connor master the two key elements: the team and Brooks.

This inspirational, rough and tumble, profanity-free testament to ingenuity also touches on the conflicts between work ethics and domestic responsibility.

Kurt Russell is perfect as hockey coach Herb Brooks in a true story that still manages to be rousing and inspirational despite its inherent predictability.

Esquemático em toda a narrativa, é apenas mais um exemplo inferior do gênero "azarão-com-espírito-de-vencedor".

While I don't like the way it simplifies history, I have to admit that Miracle is a hugely effective crowd-pleaser.

[It takes] a wonderful story and transforms it into by-the-numbers entertainment that doesn't show us anything new about hockey or this historic event.

It's not too hokey, not politically correct, not a mass of chewy, Disney-fried steak, not even a miracle -- it's just good storytelling.

You're glad that Brooks and his team have received the big-screen treatment that their story seems ideal for. But it's sad to see their excellence revisited in such a mediocre movie.
