Critic Reviews for Remember the Titans

All Critics (135) | Top Critics (35)

Maybe it's all true. But one is always a little discomfited when life, or a movie, imitates weary melodramatic patterns this slavishly.

The leads, Denzel Washington and particularly Will Patton, are so good they occasionally make you forget the material is shameless.

The emphasis on the players' developing mutual trust, is absorbing to watch and cleanly directed.

Inspiring football drama brings history to life.

Common Sense Media

The crack-of-dawn jog to Gettysburg is the only hokey Hail Mary in an otherwise smart, stirring sports film. Consider "Titans" a PG-rated, kindhearted drill for the brutal sadism that would win Denzel Washington an Oscar for "Training Day."

The absence of innovation can easily be forgiven.

Audience Reviews for Remember the Titans

½

Sports dramas tend to follow a specific set of guidelines to tell its story. Ever films in the genre seem to embody the feel good aspect that has been a staple of the genre since the early sports movies, and I'm fine with that. With Remember the Titans, we have a good drama that is based on real events, and does something a bit different than your normal genre film, but it does add the typical elements that are we come to expect with these films. What is great about the film is the fact that it adds a lot to the story by showing the racial tension, and in doing that, the plot becomes more intricate, engaging and thought provoking. The performances are very good, and there several that stand out, especially that of its lead actors Denzel Washington and Will Patton. The film tackles an important subject that goes beyond the sports dramatic genre, and it does it pretty well. However, I did feel that at times there could have been a few improvements as well. Remember the Titans is a good film, but one that should really have stood considering the subject the film displays. If this wasn't released by Disney, then maybe a much better movie would have been made. This is good for what it is, but you end up wanting more from its story. For a sports film that uses the issue of race in its story, this film really should have been memorable. But what we have here is good entertainment, but to viewers wanting a bit more, you'll be a bit disappointed because like all other genre films, it is a tad predictable, and it left a lot of unexplored ideas that just never came to fruition. Nonetheless, Remember the Titans is a good story, one that showed teamwork in the face of prejudice, and in the end it's all that matters.

Denzel Washington leads the team on a charge until the final whistle in Remember the Titans, a grand and inspirational football film. This Walt Disney classic is a primitive display of adversity and courage. The amount of chemistry from the then-segregated gridiron warriors was remarkable and helped propel this film as a truly great and heartfelt sports movie for every generation to experience. 5/5

Extremely formulaic sports drama, but with a great leading performance from Denzel Washington, this film becomes something more special.
