5.0 out of 5 stars A classic that didn't get a fair shake May 26, 2012
By un
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Not only did this movie come from a true story, but it was a great story.
And on top of this it was very well told with an all star cast including Forest Whitaker, Isaiah Washington, and others you'll recognize.

The movie shows just enough of Katrina footage to remind us of the travesty of the storm and our handling of the aftermath - but it does not over do it. Then it moves on at a perfect pace to the story of rebuilding. It comes with inspiring words balanced with a real glimpse of the dirty and slow process it was in New Orleans.

It's crazy that this never hit the big screen because it was so good, because it was a true story, and because it had an Academy Award Winner and stars like Lil Wayne.

It really should sit on everyone's shelf along side your true story sports classics like The Blind Side, Hoosiers, More than a Game, Glory Road, Miracle, Cinderella Man, Brian's Song, and Remember the Titans.

3.0 out of 5 stars If it didn't have Forest Whitaker... August 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
.. it wouldn't have gotten 3 stars. Even he had a hard time bringing a forced dialogue to believability. The fact that the story was true kept my attention because I know that area. But that area was devastated by Hurricane Katrina, and there were indeed people who carried on and pulled things together in the face of unbelievable conditions. Any triumph arising from those conditions was important and deserved a better telling than it got in this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad circumstance but Great Insight to others view January 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie should have been seen on the big screen. The story we all know was sad due to the loss of so many lives during Hurricane Katrina. But the story of these students/basketball players and their coaches was inspiring. My sons and I have watched it at least 5 times since it aired on television and another 3 times since we purchased the DVD from Amazon.com

I like true life sport movies--this one left me feeling ambivalent. Has a feel good ending so that is the main thing when one is wanting to be entertained.

Whitacker was great, but the story wasn't very well developed. Okay for a summer movie, but could have been SO much better.
