Director Gavin O'Connor has given us one of the greatest sports movies of all time and the best hockey movie this side of the comedic hockey masterpiece Slap Shot.

The film is about the moment of victory, and what a beautiful moment it was.

The film has many great moments, but dare I say, it's not melodramatic enough.

Like all great sports movies, 'Miracle' is less a study of a competitive contest than it is a character analysis. And ho-hum, another great performance by Kurt Russell.

Gavin O'Connor takes a potentially jingoistic movie and makes it into a challenging little politcal statement--hey, you get the *puck* out of Afghanistan!

Although it struggles to reproduce the emotion of the moment, it emphatically reminds us that on one fateful Friday night, the impossible was possible.

If Miracle weren't so passionate and finally affecting, it would be easy to dismiss its familiarity and overt jingosim as lazy screenwriting.

If you can tolerate all this phony uplift you'll also get a pretty interesting story about a shrewd Minnesota college coach named Herb Brooks.

That it's so warmly nostalgic and so damn exciting (especially when you consider that, hey, we already know who won that game) is a minor miracle in its own right.

Olympic hockey drama re-creates an unexpected victory and the blood, sweat, toil and tears that made it happen.

[T]humbs up for this uplifting and inspirational movie about one of the great upsets in sports history.

An almost joyless movie...The only miracle is that O'Connor has taken a magnificently unpredictable story and turned it into a predictable one.
February 13, 2004
While the sundry tensions among players and, especially, between players and coach, provide a modicum of drama, none is pursued to the point of detail.
February 12, 2004
...what makes the film a cut above is its spectacular camera work and well paced and meticulous attention to detail.

Asking how it ends is like asking whether the boat sinks in Titanic. What makes Miracle special is its respect for every event that precedes the big game.

I would like to have gotten to know some of the players a little bit better.

A basic, feel-good sports movie, but if you like that sort of thing, it isn't too bad

Despite its been-there, done-that theme, Miracle stirs your emotions anyway...
