The studio that brought you Remember The Titans now delivers another winner with this exciting and inspirational true story of the team that changed college basketball -- and the nation -- forever! Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama) stars as future Hall of Fame coach Don Haskins of tiny Texas Western University, who bucks convention by simply starting the best players he can find: history's first all-African American lineup. In a turbulent time of social and political change, their unlikely success sends shock waves through the sport that follow the underdog Miners all the way to an epic showdown with all-white, #1 ranked Kentucky for the National Championship!

    Very poorly made film, so disjointed and skipped to random scenes all the time. No fluency and incredibly cliche! Script was distinctly uninspiring!
  • Fairly poor example of the genre

    Its a shame as it had the makings of good story. The acting is a bit lame and the script clunky and cliched. It lacks any real spark or drama. Watch We are Marshall, Invincible or The Miracle of Bern (my personal favorite) first.
  • Good Film

    This film is truly inspirational, the mere idea of such a feat being performed in an area and time of so much segregation and racial hatred. I have rented the film and then gone on to buy as it quickly became a timeless classic from the first viewing. As a fan of sports films, renting films such as; Invincible, Remember the Titans and We are Marshall, although i can truly say these films are some of the strongest contenders when refering to sports films. Glory Road goes above and beyond a film about sport. Brilliant for all ages, A MUST SEE MUST BUY FILM * * * * *
