You'll be embarrassed, sad, happy then exhausted.
February 27, 2007
Has its inspiring moments - especially given the true story - and some tense, dramatic scenes amid the speedy montages of confusing gang action.

Engaging but clichd inspirational drama set during the time of the 1992 race riots in Los Angeles. On some level, just about any movie featuring never-say-die teachers is effective.
January 10, 2007
Square, sincere, and proud of it.

A touching performance from Hilary Swank ensures that Freedom Writers is not just another tripe genre movie.

The movie benefits from an interesting subject and good acting, I just wish it were more focused and deep.

Unless you're a teacher longing to identify with your lifestyle on screen, this movie is still just another of many in an already oversaturated genre.
July 16, 2008
Familiar plot has a strong, inspirational message.
January 4, 2008
A richly rewarding film experience that rises to the top of its genre.
August 13, 2007
While it is, like its genre brethren, inspiring and uplifting, Freedom Writers glosses over so much material that it makes the process look too easy.
August 4, 2007
Ironically, the film features almost zero teaching. Despite much pedagogical posturing, it doesn't teach us much, either.

The HD-DVD version of Freedom Writers includes just one high definition item among its extras: the movie trailer.
July 16, 2007
Worthwhile because of its honesty, because it tells a true story that's worth telling, and because Hilary Swank and company have done it so well.
July 14, 2007
Is this film formulaic? Yes. Does it accomplish what it set out to do? Yes. ... It's certainly not a perfect movie but it does offer many pleasures.

Paramount's DVD presentation provides further incentive to give this movie a look.
July 10, 2007
Swank's earthiness is key here, and she consistently rises above the story's cliches.
