Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Packages a real-life story of athletic triumph and social progress into an accessible, rousing melodrama that is no less potent for being almost entirely predictable. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Oct 13, 2008

Fresh: Despite appealing performances and kinetic football scenes, the storytelling is mostly conventional, except for two outstanding set pieces. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Nov 10, 2008

Rotten: The film does the job, in its conventional way. But it's geared to throw the prime screen time in the direction of the guy playing the guy coaching the guy who's supposed to be running the movie. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Oct 20, 2008

Rotten: Sadly, however, this is all too familiar, which is something nobody could say about the real Ernie Davis. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Amazing Movie

A movie that represents a great hero in college football history

Brilliant Movie for everyone, especially Syracuse Oranges!

This movie is excellent, it tells a heart-wrenching story of one of footballs legends in a way that will captivate and astound you. I am not a great fan of football, but I'm a student at SU and so decided to watch this movie and do not regret it - it's one of my all time FAVORITE movies. Outstanding acting, excellent directing and a passion for detail and excellence make this movie a MUST see.
