"Miracle" might've benefited by telling the story from a hockey player's POV, and let Coach Brooks be more of an enigma. Let him be aloof, sometimes a bastard, hated by his players, and then reveal his sensitive side. When the coach has to cut a player, his remorse is too demonstrative. "Miracle('s)" preoccupation with making the audience like Herb Brooks dillutes what made him interesting. Expand

Instead of using Al Michael's original voice from the archives, they dubbed his voice and the intensity just wasn't there. The players did not portray an authentic level of excitement either---- bad directing. Kurt Russell's accent is not Minnesotan, but a very heavy Chicago dialect which bothered me for some reason. If you want to re-live the magic, watch the HBO special. Expand
