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.

The result is the sort of deeply massaged truth that isn't stranger than fiction -- it's worse than fiction.

When the hard battle for integration is served up as a feel-good package, we've all been bamboozled.

Aside from its message-waving, pic dedicates itself to entertaining the audience via its military-style whip-'em-into-shape training antics, the sort of thing that always goes down very easily.

The story is based on real incidents, but the uplifting tone is laid on so thick that it's difficult to believe a minute of it.

Titans may prove that Bruckheimer has a social conscience, but it can't hide his penchant for pandering.

Remember the Titans is similarly solid; its satisfactions are time-tested, a little worn but nonetheless durable.

It's slick Hollywood product, all right, but it also may be the most moving and entertaining movie so far this year.

I admired the way the screenplay, by Gregory Allen Howard, doesn't make Boone noble and Yoast a racist, but shows them both as ambitious and skilled professionals.

Toss it in the bin along with The Replacements, but give it bonus points, at least, for having a social conscience.

[Bruckheimer's] latest production is, in some ways, a departure. Not only is it based on a true story, it is also actually about something.

The good news is that whenever the tear-and-a-smile stuff threatens to go overboard, the film pulls back and gives us another scene on the football field, and all the football scenes are strong.

All heart, big muscles and not a whole lot of gray matter upstairs. Still, once in a while, it shows itself to be just smart enough to make a key play.
