    4 1/2 stars. Very exciting movie, with a good message. Definitely showed team spirit. It valued team over the individual. A movie about overcoming obstacles. My wife loved it. The main reason for most negative reviews (from what I can gather) was that the movie freely incorporated faith into it. This isn't one of those poorly-acted, faith-based movies. Yes, it has faith interwoven into it, but the acting is very good. Bottom line: if you are anti-religion, you won't like this movie. Anybody who is a Christian or neutral, will truly like this movie.

    I am a huge sports fan and I love sports movies, so I was quite excited to see this film that is based on a true story. I am disappointed to say that I did not like this film and I do not think it is worth seeing it on the big screen. I found the film to be dull and ridden with genre cliches, which made me roll my eyes way too often. The film is well-intentioned but really heavy-handed, the creators of the film tried to make a film about sports that also has deeper meaning, but they did not succeed.

    Inspired by a true story, this film tells the remarkable journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport. When the streak is broken, and tragedy strikes the team, Coach Lad must teach his players - and the entire town - that it's not about how you fall, but how you get back up. I am not sports movies fan and I was not excited to see this film, but my boyfriend wanted to see it so I caved. The film is full of genre cliches and it is very heavy-handed. I could tell that the creators of the film had good intentions, but the film kind of sucks. Overall, I do not recommend seeing it on the big screen or at home for that matter.
