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.
February 13, 2004
[T]humbs up for this uplifting and inspirational movie about one of the great upsets in sports history.
February 10, 2004
Russell is terrific as coach Herb Brooks.
February 7, 2004
Big on slogans, but low on personality.
February 6, 2004
The movie effectively simulates the game's whirl, and should grab all but the most finicky hockey fans. But for moviegoers who think if you've seen one sports flick, you've seen 'em all -- well, you've definitely seen this one.
February 6, 2004
The movie brings the audience back to 1980 with bone-crunching verisimilitude.
February 6, 2004
Hockey fans should enjoy the movie, as will fans of the underdog.
February 6, 2004
[A] strenuously uplifting reactionary crowd pleaser.
February 6, 2004
A better-than- average sports movie.
February 6, 2004
The movie's extended re-creation of the game is still thrilling and nerve-racking.
February 6, 2004
Miracle gives audiences something to cheer for.
February 6, 2004
The best sports movie since Tin Cup.
February 6, 2004
A suspenseful, emotional experience even for those who don't study the sports pages.
February 6, 2004
A by- the-numbers re-telling of what Sports Illustrated dubbed the single greatest sports moment of the 20th century.
February 6, 2004
I don't know that I've ever felt more involved in fictional competition than I was throughout this movie, and I can't tell a hockey puck from cow pie.
February 6, 2004
Long on cliche and short on originality.
February 6, 2004
A worthy ride, especially if you're into sports.
February 6, 2004
The climax, a 20-minute dramatization of the crucial contest, lacks both suspense and poetry -- essentially, we're left to watch a clumsy recreation of a game whose outcome we already know.
February 6, 2004
A fitting tribute to Brooks.
February 6, 2004
Don't look for surprises here, but know that the story of the 1980 triumph again earns respect and should quicken the pulse of a new generation of filmgoers who are ready for some inspiration on ice.
