From the studio that brought you THE ROOKIE and REMEMBER THE TITANS comes the movie everybody loves -- MIRACLE. Filled with exhilarating nonstop hockey action and heart-racing suspense, it's the inspiring true story behind one of the greatest moments in sports history - the 1980 United States ice hockey team's triumphant Olympic victory against the Soviet Union. Kurt Russell gives a brilliant performance as the dynamic and determined coach Herb Brooks, who had an impossible dream -- beat the seemingly unbeatable Soviets at their own game. Starting with a handpicked group of twenty-six undisciplined kids, Brooks coached them to play like they never played before, and turned twenty of them into a team that believed they could achieve the unachievable -- and in the process, united a nation with a new feeling of hope.

"Miracle" does a great job with the historical backdrop surrounding the team, getting the look and feel of the 1979-1980 period just right. It was a time of malaise much like our own, and the team's victory game the country a much-needed shot in the arm.
Even if like most of us you don't know the finer points of hockey and know how the movie will end, it is absorbing throughout. "Miracle" shows how the team was assembled, and recalls how the sacrifices and intense training Brooks put the team through eventually produced a team that was much greater than the sum of its parts, beat the feared Soviet team, and won gold. The movie even incorporates original ABC footage from Lake Placid, including the iconic call of Al Michaels at the end of the defeat of the Russians in the medal round.
Bonus features include Herb Brooks talking to the filmmakers and an ESPN discussion of this moving, inspiring film.
I don't think it's possible not to like this movie. It may not be your favorite, but it has something for everyone. It's not the best movie ever made, but it does make you feel better than any other movie can.
Very happy with my purchase and I would recommend this seller to anyone.
I have read reviews that criticize this movie as 'predictable.' Hello??? It is history that we all know already happened!!! This is Hollywood tripe at its best. This movie as as much about the big win as it is about the hearts, lives and sacrifices the players put into the win... If nothing else, I will be showing this movie to my grand kids as an important part of the history of this Nation.
