If you're a basketball fan, you'll love it. If you're a parent looking for movie inspiration for your offspring, see it as a family outing. For everyone else, Glory Road is an accessible time capsule of American history.

Like most sports films Glory Road works best when it is actually showcasing its sport ... off the court, however, it's alternately flat and didactic. Director Gartner goes to great pains to drill the films message in, early and often.

Glory Road doesn't have any of the individual moments that humanized Hoosiers, The Rookie, and Miracle. It's a feel-good sports movie by the numbers.

Playing out like Remember The Titans for basketball fans, Glory Road is yet another would-be inspirational true story that follows sports-movie conventions.
March 25, 2008
First-time director James Gartner observes all the rituals--the coach busting chops, the team sneaking out to party--but the players are indifferently characterized and the civil rights story has a fake Black History Month feel.

Why must Hollywood lace every African-American drama with elements of comedy, as if black people find everything comical?

It isn't meant to be a movie that makes us think, or that makes us uneasy in any way. It's meant to make us feel good.

Trying to make a sports movie for the entire family is understandable, but it makes a complicated story like Glory Road feel more like Disney than reality.

This is the type of story that's better suited to the documentary format.

An underdog sports movie by the numbers.

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.

History wins in by-the-numbers sports flick ...

...it's ultimately rather difficult not to get caught up in this inspirational true-life tale.

Determinado a ressaltar a importância da história que está contando, o filme mergulha em erros factuais, maniqueísmos e clichês, transformando algo significativo em puro água-com-açúcar.
May 12, 2006
Gartner makes a hash of the game scenes and must resort to voiceover sportscasters to explain what's happening.
May 4, 2006
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.
March 14, 2006
The familiar territory covered here may leave you wishing for something that digs deeper into the soul of a sportsman's passion.

The true story is fascinating, groundbreaking and inspirational. It's a shame the cinematic treatment is predictable, conventional and trite.
