This hard-hitting college basketball drama marks a notable return to form for William Friedkin.

[An] effective, if overlong basketball drama.

If Mr. Friedkin didn't have to work so strenuously framing two-shots of Mr. Nolte with this seven-foot athlete, it might be hard to remember that Mr. O'Neal has a day job.

Worth seeing for Nolte's force-of-nature performance and the novelty of Shaq "emoting."

A rare example of an entry into this genre that attempts to be honest and unique.

What Friedkin brings to the story is a tone that feels completely accurate; the movie is a morality play, told in the realistic, sometimes cynical terms of modern high-pressure college sports.

The film is quite entertaining in its own right and Nolte does give it a tremendous boost.

Watching various hoop stars and legends trying to act is cringeworthy, O'Neal particularly bad, but Friedkin's movie, written by sports film specialist Shelton has a lot of passion.
March 25, 2008
A good concept fails to become a good movie in this predictable tale of corruption in college basketball.

March 25, 2008
A deafness-inducing but otherwise ho-hum would-be expose of shady recruiting practices by college basketball programs.
March 25, 2008
Not even an unsentimental basketball fan like director William Friedkin can wash away all the corn syrup.
