  • Starring:
  • Summary: In 1971 high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria, Virginia. But when the local school board was forced to integrate an all black school with an all white school, the very foundation of football's great tradition was put to the test. (Walt Disney Pictures)

  1. Works better and cuts deeper than the mostly fictionalized "Hoosiers."
  2. Earns its emotional moments, and it takes the audience along.
  3. 75
    Has the outer form of a brave statement about the races in America, but the soul of a sports movie in which everything is settled by the obligatory last play in the last seconds of the championship game.
  4. If Remember the Titans is corny, it's unabashedly, even generously so.
  5. 50
    Perfectly effective when judged on its own merits, but is that really enough anymore?
  6. 40
    Distressingly shallow.
  7. So smug and so proud of itself, and you can tell that everybody involved conceives of it as a civics lesson instead of a story, that they squeeze all the life out of it.

    I think you should ignore the critics on this one. This is definitely one of my favorite movies! I can watch this movie over and over again. The story is absolutely great! Personally I like football a lot, which makes this movie even more appealing to me. And the fact that it's all based on actual events from 1971, makes this movie to what it is; a masterpiece! A must-see!! Expand

    Remember the Titans is an inspirational sports film about a football team in Virginia. The plot in this movie is great and everyone was absolutely great at acting. From Denzel Washington to the barely seen football players on the team. In my opinion, this is a good inspirational movie for everyone that I recommend you see. Expand

    The embodiment of excellent modern sports dramas, "Remember The Titans" is inspiring, compelling, and intelligent.

    A Disney story with a Disney ending. The movie tweaks a few details of the true story to make it pleasing for everyone watching. And that is exactly what it was, enjoyable to watch with great quotable speeches. But it was just too predictable and too "soft" for my taste but good insight to what it was like in those days. My final score is 71.8 out of 100. Expand
