Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: In the end, the only real impact is limited to a few scenes ... – Anita Gates, New York Times, Aug 21, 2014

Rotten: A true tale of high school football achievement becomes a strained, by-the-numbers grab bag of uplift in the Christian sports drama "When the Game Stands Tall." – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Aug 22, 2014

Rotten: It's as if the filmmakers somehow think they've got the relaxed narrative confines of "Friday Night Lights" the TV series to play with, rather than "Friday Night Lights" the movie. The game plan is flawed. – Tom Russo, Boston Globe, Aug 21, 2014

Rotten: Undeserving of a victory dance – Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News, Aug 21, 2014
