Remember the Titans? Of course you do. And here's another great sports movie from Disney.
January 16, 2006
Disney runs history through the same Hollywood melodramatic redo that made Miracle, the Olympic hockey saga, such a crowd pleaser in 2004 and The Rookie a winning baseball film in 2002.

What is difficult to ascertain about Glory Road is where fact ends and fiction begins.

Glory Road becomes that rare sports movie that realizes that buzzer-beating shots aren't the only dramatic moments in a game.

... Deals with the issue of race about as realistically as can be expected from a Disney movie.

Glory Road, the true-ish story of the first all-black NCAA championship basketball team, throws down a 360 slam dunk in the face of racism.
January 13, 2006
An appealing Disney sports movie that underplays its potential, Glory Road is at least a more satisfying basketball saga than last year's Coach Carter.
January 13, 2006
Even knowing the outcome, sports' fans will cheer the lightning-fast, dynamically edited on-court action that's only slowed by a few lumbering, heavy handed scenes.
January 13, 2006
The basketball drama Glory Road is about as smoothly predictable as a well-aimed ball arching from a hand toward a net, but is, still, inspiring.
January 13, 2006
Somehow, Bruckheimer keeps the sentimentality to a minimum and keeps his story moving at a very nice pace: four fast quarters and a halftime.
January 13, 2006
A nice, diverting little picture that takes no risks -- a good movie that could have been a great one.
January 13, 2006
When a movie this corny still inspires, 'feel good' feels just right. Stay through the credits, when the 'real' coach and players talk, and you'll see the real Glory in this tale.

Heart and verve in surfeit makes the film rise above its flaws often enough to win you over.

As Coach Haskins would say, it wins because it sticks to the fundamentals.

Glory Road is a pure Hollywood fantasy. As movie fiction, however, I guess it is entertaining enough.
January 13, 2006
In the end, a sports movie is only as good as the adrenalin rush it provides in the climactic match, and there, finally, Glory Road hits on all cylinders with nonstop action and a powerful emotional impact.
January 13, 2006
Glory Road's greatest strength is that it's just a great story, acted well.
January 13, 2006
To the credit of everyone involved with Disney's Glory Road, all things familiar still become exhilarating and inspirational.
