"Undefeated" (110 min.) brings the story of the North Memphis Manassas High School football team's 2009 season. The football team's history is one of losing, losing, losing, until a few years before that a volunteer coach named Bill Courtney steps up and coaches and wills these young men, all of them underprivileged from this inner-city part of Memphis, to greater things. "Coach Bill", as he is referred to by his players, tries to instill discipline, character, and the "team first" concept to them, and what a struggle it is.

The title of this documentary is quite curious, as the team does NOT go undefeated, nor do these young men go undefeated through life. The movie focuses primarily on three of the team's players, including a young man who returns to school as a junior after having served a 15 month jail sentence as a juvenile (it is never made clear what he did to deserve that sentence). Another of those kids the movie focuses on gets injured early into the season and we see him struggle, having lost a sense of belonging (as he is no longer part of the team) but trying to get back into shape in time for the play-offs. There are many incredible moments in this movie that I won't spoil here, but suffice it to say that I welled up on more than one occasion. Special mention to "Coach Bill", who does an incredible job, at the sacrifice of his own family (he has a wife and 4 young kids). Be sure to watch the end credits, as the film makers reveal what became of the pirncipals in this movie after that 2009 season.

"Undefeated" won this year's Oscar for "Best Documentary" and it's easy to see why.

Format: DVD
I fell in love with football while I was in High School and have been a fan ever since. I actually learned about the game just to impress a boy but my love of the sport stayed long after he was gone! I always love a good sports movie and a true one is even better so I was really looking forward to watching Undefeated.

I actually had no idea what to expect because I never read the back of movies before watching because I don't like to have any pre-conceived notions. I didn't know anything other than this was a football movie based on the cover. I didn't know it was a documentary so I was a little disappointed when it started and I realized it. I don't usually like documentaries but I have never been so happy to admit I was wrong.

This documentary was so touching and inspirational. I think for a documentary to be successful it has to be put together perfectly and there has to be a balance between interviews, shots of the football games and the players home lives. This documentary was expertly put together and inspiring music completed the recipe for success. I can see why this won an Oscar!

Coach Bill Courtney took a football team at a school with no money and no hope for a future and made them into winners.

Undefeated isn't just referring to winning football games. It's about not letting life defeat you and working hard to accomplish your dreams no matter what your circumstance. These boys had no hope for a future after school and lived in absolute poverty; most with only one parent at home and some with none. These are the types of kids that people write off and add to a statistic which then becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. Courtney was not going to fall into that category without a fight.

By the end of this DVD I was in tears.

I have never been so thoroughly and completely in a movie's vice grip. There's a scene at the end that is so gripping, so profound, that it's almost unbearable to watch. Incredibly stirring. Wow.
