Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An appealing Disney sports movie that underplays its potential, Glory Road is at least a more satisfying basketball saga than last year's Coach Carter.
Rotten: The team's accomplishments are here diluted into fodder for another of the producer's feel-good man-weepies.
Rotten: Glory Road abandons the clinical and compelling storytelling of the great recent Disney hockey movie Miracle, and aims instead for the contrived sentimentality of the slightly less great Remember the Titans.
Fresh: Glory Road is a pure Hollywood fantasy. As movie fiction, however, I guess it is entertaining enough.
Glory Road is a really good under-dog team movie. And while it does have its fun sences, it also shows what black basketball players had to go through to get where they are today. If you like the movie Remember the Titans, then is another movie you'll definately want to check out. I say check this one out for sure!
delightful and heart warming!
This is a terrific movie that I'm sure has touched the hearts of millions. I know for a fact that I am not a huge fan of basketball, but even then, I saw this movie at LEAST 3 times in theaters. It is a story of teamwork, friendship, prejudice, and racism. This is one of the happiest and best movies I have ever seen in my life. Buy it NOW!!!! <3
I was at Texas Western that year, and the season actually was even greater than portrayed in the movie. I wish they had shown El Paso the evening of the NCAA Championship win. The town went absolutely wild! Movie was exceptionally well done, and acting was excellent also. I highly recommend it.
