Editorial Reviews

Tom Berenger gives a riveting performance as legendary football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant in The Junction Boys, from ESPN Original Entertainment - the true-life story about his infamous first preseason training camp in Junction, Texas. On a blistering late-summer day, one hundred potential Texas A&M Aggies find themselves in the middle of nowhere facing a drought-punished village where the temperature hovers a 120 degrees. It's a harsher than anything they've ever known except for maybe one thing - their new head coach. The Junction Boys is a triumphant story of dedication and how one man's will to win turns boys into players and players into champions.

I first watched this movie while working as a Behavioral Health worker with borderline criminial Adolecents age 12-17. A fellow co-worker brought the film in as a suprise "treat movie" for the kids.

In all my years (there have been many) I have never seen a reaction to a film from this population in all my life. The story of the team and Mr. Bryant and how it wa portrayed in this film made the kids begin to think of their own lives , and how they could do better for people.

It was a strange reaction to this film, but it truly moved them and myself.

As far as the film itself goes Berringer is great as is the support cast and the studio did an excellent job. I have heard the book is even better.

There is nothing about this movie that sugar coats what happened at junction in 1954. Even coach bryant knew that he went too far and was too rigid with his rules and standards. So rigid that even players who were sick and injured from the ordeal were not allowed to stay on the team if they couldn't practice. After A&M lost their first game in a blow out bryant said "that one was on me" because the players were too beat up. That 1-9 season was bryant's only losing season ever! Understand the historical significance? The greatest college coach ever had a 1-9 team because of junction!

We need to have a historical perspective here. First of all texas a&m was not a small school. It is a big time major football school with a long history of winning. Back in the 1950s and even into the 60s it was not uncommon for coaches to work their players half to death in searing heat with no water. They believed then that it toughened them up. Read about bud wilkinson at oklahoma and you see the same thing. Also at that time you had a lot of walk ons. Students who played high school football but didn't get a scholarship trying out for the team. These walk ons were treated very cruel as a means of thinning them out quickly. That happened here but it happened everywhere.

This is a movie about survival under incredibly tough circumstances. The fact that those circumstances were forced upon them doesn't change that. Bryant loved those 35 men because he knew he pushed them too hard; because he knew he went too far. That is why he wore that ring to his grave And most of those 35 men loved him. The movie depicts a legendary 70 year old coach nervous like a school girl ready to meet these men 25 years later. He doesn't know how many would be there or how they would respond to him.

The extra features on this disk are well worth the price but the movie itself is full of holes. Too much is left out. Paul Bryant comes out looking like a bad guy here which I'm sure doesn't sit well with many college football fans. The extra features however are excellent. The ESPN presentations of Sports Century and The Real Junction Boys alone make this a worthy addition for any football fan. If you are interested in this story buy the book. It's much more informative and portrays Bryant in a much better and understandable light. Was he mean? Yes! Was he ornery? Always! But you will understand why he became this way at this point in his career.

This movie really shows the tough practices at Junction with Bear Bryant. It was a very good movie and the story was great. The book is alot more descriptive, and the movie and book both share a story that will be remembered for a long time.

I enjoyed the Junction Boys DVD as I have lived during this time period. My son, who plays HS football now, did not like it. He felt like the camp in Junction was cruel and unusual punishment. From a historical point of view I remember things like this happening during that time in our history. I know coaches did things differently then; I am glad we have grown as humans since then. I also was pleased at how the movie ended. I have read the biography of Paul "Bear" Bryant and feel that the movie did a good job of depicting him as a man and coach of a time past. I was entertained and so it is a good movie in my estimation.

This movie is really worth watching. It has the movie,Sportcentury of Bear Bryant and interviews of the real people who were there. The movie is somewhat embellished abnd brings back memories of football camp. They believed you don't give players water also. Just remember it is camp and camp never is supposed to be fun. Camp is grulling. Truly the Bear is the best. Six national titles and only one losing season. The only ring he wore was the Junction Boys ring. He truly had such great respect for these guys. A sports film worth owning. Don't forget to buy Monday Night Mayhem.

The Junction Boys is a great movie about Bear Bryant and the first team that he coached at Texas A&M. It's a great motivational film as well as a great story about coaching football under a demanding task master.
The story is true. You don't have to particularly care for football to enjoy this film. But if you do like football, any football, this is a must see movie. A true classic.
