A story about people rather than just one a team going for the win. In doing so, O'Connor makes Miracle one of the more thoughtful and enjoyable films revolving around sports.

Even if you don't know a "blue line from a clothes line," "Miracle" is a thoroughly enjoyable film that unspools like a Robert Altman movie where many characters' individual essences are revealed at once.

Miracle capitalizes on its understanding of team dynamics: the bonding of pain and gain alike, the ownership of integrity over ego, the satisfaction of communal accomplishment. [Blu-ray]

This inspirational, rough and tumble, profanity-free testament to ingenuity also touches on the conflicts between work ethics and domestic responsibility.

Kurt Russell is perfect as hockey coach Herb Brooks in a true story that still manages to be rousing and inspirational despite its inherent predictability.

While I don't like the way it simplifies history, I have to admit that Miracle is a hugely effective crowd-pleaser.

It's not too hokey, not politically correct, not a mass of chewy, Disney-fried steak, not even a miracle -- it's just good storytelling.

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 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!
