    The script finds nothing new to say and fails to balance the full wight of the tragedy with the Football elements. With a cast this fantastic it should have been better.

    Good movie. A wee surprised the final speech wasn't better.

    I'm from The Ohio Valley, so this film holds a special place in my heart. It brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it.

    An overall decent movie. A little cliche and possibly tries TOO hard to be inspirational but it's one of those typical feel good sports movies, and it's worth a watch.

    Its decent is some regards. But it didn't move me or inspire me in any way. Its over 2 hours long and it could of been trimmed down a lot.

    Awesome movie! This is a very moving story about the true story of the Marshall University football team following a plane crash tragedy which killed most of their football team as well as several prominent members of their community. Outstanding performances by McConaughey and especially Matthew Fox. Five stars!

    When I first saw this I remember feeling like the ending wasn't satisfying and even that Matthew McConaughey's performance was annoying. I don't feel that way anymore. The character he portrays here is definitely a bit socially awkward, but good-hearted and very clever in the use of parable to get his points across. This in turn shows the amazing things that can fall in your lap if you just literally ask for them. Speaking to people is almost becoming a lost art, but if you want something, there are often many ways to steer a conversation in order to get the thing that you want. There is a lot of survivor guilt in this film, and it of course addresses the issues with letting someone go after the loss of a life. None of this is easy subject matter, but it feels like it's handled well. The music selection for the soundtrack is spot on and there isn't any ham or cheese acting to taint the film. Maybe not my favorite, but a good sports film in spite of that.

    It’s an inspirational and satisfying movie. It’s better than 43%. User score is much more accurate than the critic score.
