Inspiring football drama brings history to life.

The crack-of-dawn jog to Gettysburg is the only hokey Hail Mary in an otherwise smart, stirring sports film. Consider "Titans" a PG-rated, kindhearted drill for the brutal sadism that would win Denzel Washington an Oscar for "Training Day."

The film is quite lightweight for the subject matter, but Washington and company make it watchable.

Although there's enough emotional manipulation here to fill a river with tears, it's hard not to be swept up...

Maybe it's all true. But one is always a little discomfited when life, or a movie, imitates weary melodramatic patterns this slavishly.

Yakin's hackwork is so slickly manipulative and preachy it has the tone of a politician's TV commercial...

The leads, Denzel Washington and particularly Will Patton, are so good they occasionally make you forget the material is shameless.

Unless you find the idea of such an earnest, well-meaning mixture of rah-rah sports action, social commentary and maudlin tearjerker off-putting from the start, you'll find that this example is professionally crafted and perhaps even momentarily stirring.

The emphasis on the players' developing mutual trust, is absorbing to watch and cleanly directed.

The film tries its best not to point fingers and avoids the strawmen racists that are so easily shown in other movies.

The best performance here, though, is by Will Patton who infuses his Coach Yoast with the humanity that's strangely missing from Washington's Coach Boone.

Remember The Titans won't win any Oscars and it won't explain the rules of American football but the glow will last the whole way home.

A moving story with nice work from young actors Wood Harris and Ryan Hurst, among others, as the young men forced to see beyond skin color.

Is perfecting the art of middle-of-the-road really what should be applauded in movie making today?
