One of 2006's greatest cinematic tragedies.

McConaughey campily channels Jon Stewart channeling George W. Bush for his impersonation of Lengyel.

...would've benefited from the presence of virtually any other actor in the central role...

We Are Marshall is not a bad movie; it is a potentially nice, familiar movie unfortunately marred by the unspeakably awful performance of Matthew McConaughey.

It would be easier to tolerate the movie's mile-wide sentimental streak if [director] McG seemed genuinely interested in exploring the confusing mix of emotions that follows a horrible tragedy.
December 27, 2006
Even with the triumphant ending, it's still a lot of tragedy to get over in life, let alone in one evening.

A strong cast [is] shortchanged by a director who can't trust his audience to feel anything not loaded with exclamation points.
December 27, 2006
Too long and too talky. It takes 40 minutes for star Matthew McConaughey to make his first appearance.
December 26, 2006
When McG gets to the big-game finale, he fumbles big-time, going for a deflating victory at the expense of emotional truth.
December 26, 2006
Reaches for inspiration but finds mediocrity.
December 26, 2006
A touching story turns into an ordinary movie-of-the-week.
December 23, 2006
We Are Marshall is never as emotionally draining as this material requires, but it gives it the old college try and comes close to succeeding.
