All eyes are on the ball, while the future screams from the sidelines.

Can take its place proudly alongside the best in the genre.

'Undefeated' is no 'Hoop Dreams', but it's sturdily built and worthwhile.

"Undefeated" doesn't have a deep penetration of poverty and race in its playbook, but it does have enough heart to make substantial forward progress.

It's a surprisingly moving, emotional film, even for those who (like me) know little of football; by its end, you just might be blinking away a few tears.

[A] winning documentary.

[A] stirring, emotional portrait of a high school football team in the impoverished neighborhood of North Memphis, Tenn.

It's a bit too long and a bit too vague at times, but this is a film about dedication, progress and the bond of human effort. It just also happens to include football.

"Undefeated'' needs less of what we know we've seen (the football stuff) and more of the players' and coaches' lives, which even if we feel we've seen, we haven't.

What makes this a terrific film is how much we care about the players.

Courtney really does believe all that stuff about adversity and character, and the film is moving for its modest tale of boys learning to act like men.

This film is distinctly minor league. But it does provide the thumbs-up emotional lift of a bumper-sticker message on game day.

It's a credit to directors Daniel Lindsay and T.J. Daniels that the personal stories of the kids and coaches resonate more than the wins and losses.

Undefeated is undeniably inspirational stuff.

For the most part admirably chooses honest documentation over emotional manipulation.

"Undefeated" is an emotional and effective film, and I'm happy for it.

I wanted it blow my mind, to flatten me. Demanding, I know.

I wish the directors had emphasized more of the players' personal lives apart from the football field. But, in the end, this is a documentary about Courtney and the transformative powers of caring. He works wonders on his players and they reciprocate.

There are interesting edges and unexpected sides to "Undefeated" beginning with that title - because, not long after we've settled in, we watch the team lose its very first game.

If the film had something to say about football as football instead of football as life, I'd be interested. It doesn't.
