Movie Info

Robert Duvall dons tartan and a thick brogue to star as Gordon McLeod, the manager of a failing Scottish football club. The second-division club -- dubbed Kilnockie after the fishing town it calls home -- has a new owner, an American named Pete Cameron (Michael Keaton), who pressures McLeod to spruce up the faltering club and, against McLeod's wishes, hires first-division star Jackie McQuillan (real-life footy luminary Ally McCoist). McQuillan's past days of glory came with a price, as his

Pretty good little movie.

Not as distinctive or even as humorous as its needs to be to stand out, but it has clearly been made with affection and care.

The movie exists for its soccer action and its fine acting.

Offers a guilt-free trip into feel-good territory.

more like a standard Hollywood product than celebration of Beautiful Game

In other words, it's just another sports drama/character study. Yet this one makes up for in heart what it lacks in outright newness. Plus, like I already mentioned...it's Robert Duvall! C'mon!

Duvall is strong as always.

A sports movie with action that's exciting on the field and a story you care about off it.

Despite some charm and heart, this quirky soccer import is forgettable

Scotland looks wonderful, the fans are often funny fanatics, the showdown sure beats a bad day of golf.

Carrying off a spot-on Scottish burr, Duvall (also a producer) peels layers from this character that may well not have existed on paper.

Denis O'Neill's script avoids the prime sports cliche, a last-second goal to win the championship, but it neglects few others.

As its utterly generic title well suggests, leaves absolutely no cliche unexploited.

Alarms for Duvall's throbbing sincerity and his elderly propensity for patting people while he talks.

A solidly entertaining little film.

There are a couple of things that elevate "Glory" above most of its ilk, most notably the mere presence of Duvall.
