Like Hoosiers, this Jerry Bruckheimer film is a David and Goliath sports saga that holds just as much suspense and interest no matter how many times you watch it.

It's Remember the Titans on the basketball court. Count it right up there with the best of Disney's fine sports flicks.

June 24, 2006's ultimately rather difficult not to get caught up in this inspirational true-life tale.

A darn good story, told with enough conviction and impact to connect with people who don't know the difference between a three-pointer and a field goal.

This would be a pretty run-of-the-mill sports movie except for one thing, its historically-significant subject matter.

Glory Road is another in a long line of feel-good sports movies about people who beat the odds through hard work and perseverance. We've seen it before, and we'll see it again. But that's OK. These films keep coming back for a reason.

Glory Road is a rousing and worthy tribute to one of the most important college basketball teams and one of the most important championship games of all time.

... the real drama of the first all-black starting five to win the NCAA college basketball championship deserves more complexity and character development.

"Glory Road" is structured as smoothly as a well-executed game plan.

It has a vague appeal and a comfortably detached way of storytelling.

It's a terrific story with great performances and players you care about. They shoot, they score, nothing but net in my book.

It was only a game, but for these seven young men, it was their way to gain respect from a predominantly white society.
