Movie Info

George McKenna (Denzel Washington) confronts a career-defining moment when he accepts a job as principal of a tough, inner city Los Angeles high school. Facing an apathetic student body and indifferent teachers and parents, McKenna, with help from dedicated educator Bobbie Maxwell (Lynn Whitfield), transforms the school from a gang-ridden war zone into a stepping-stone for higher education, and in the process gains the hard-won respect of the community and school administrators.

Critic Reviews for The George McKenna Story

All Critics (2) | Rotten (2)

  • Em seu ltimo papel numa produo feita para a televiso, Washington demonstra carisma e intensidade, mas a montagem amadora, a trilha insuportvel e o roteiro repleto de clichs anulam seus esforos.

    July 15, 2006 | Rating: 2/5
  • Stand and Deliver still stands (no pun intended) as the only worthwhile entry into this genre, sad to say.
