  1. Works better and cuts deeper than the mostly fictionalized "Hoosiers."
  2. It really does communicate an optimistic sense that race is irrelevant and we can all live happily ever after together.
  3. A conventional, button-pushing but emotionally affecting tale.
  4. 50
    Perfectly effective when judged on its own merits, but is that really enough anymore?
  5. A shrewd, pulpy crowd-pleaser.
  6. 40
    Falls short of both the social history lesson it so pointedly strives to impart and the sport it so roughly embraces.
  7. 10
    Boorish and flatulent.

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

    This movie is a sports classic. Its moral and sports parts go well hand in hand and make the movie what it is. It is not a Fellini-like piece This movie is a sports classic. Its moral and sports parts go well hand in hand and make the movie what it is. It is not a Fellini-like piece but it is about as much as you could expect from a high class sports movie. Expand

    This is probably the best sports film I've ever seen. Just a great ensemble cast that grows more and more comfortable with each other as timeThis is probably the best sports film I've ever seen. Just a great ensemble cast that grows more and more comfortable with each other as time goes on. Denzel Washington is not exactly but he seems to tone himself down because there are points in the film where he does not need to be the star of the show. All the members of the cast undergo some significant development in this movie and its a true inspiration. Expand

    This is such a good movie. It has so many characters and memprable scenes and it teaches a valuable lesson of working together no matter whatThis is such a good movie. It has so many characters and memprable scenes and it teaches a valuable lesson of working together no matter what ethnicity you are. Denzel Washington does a good job with his character. It's also cool to look back and focus on a young Ryan Gosling. I will "remember the Titans". Expand
