      As formulaic as sports movies get, this underdog story still triumphs on the strength of its inspiring story.

      Charles C All time sports movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/30/23 Full Review Maria D This is a story of the past worth knowing! Such a great movie, very inspirational. Not a basketball fan, but definitely rooting for this team. Beautiful side of humanity. Well done Disney. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/17/23 Full Review Irwin C Entretenida, mas relacionada al deporte que al racismo lo que la hace emocionante al ser hechos reales. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Great acting and good story. Really keeps you into it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/12/22 Full Review Audience Member The underdog team must come together to win and learn some life lessons along the way. This time the underdog team is the 1966 Texas Western College basketball team which was the first to put together an all-black starting lineup in NCAA history. This film explores race relations during the late 1960's and does so unfiltered. Some of the scenes are very effective in pulling you into the culture of the time. I'm not sure if it was the writing, editing or direction, but there seemed to be several plot points that were built up that never came to a head or were ignored later in the film. I also think that the score didn't build up the suspense very well. The pop music used in the film seemed appropriate, but disappeared in the second half of the film creating a disconnect. I found the most interesting part of the film was during the credits when they showed interviews of the actual people that were portrayed in the film. If you enjoy this style of film, then give this movie a try, but it isn't for everyone. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member this tells a good dramatic story of history which I like, it has a bit of decent laughs to get through and like In Miracle shows a coach with good motivation.

      Tim Grierson Screen International Playing out like Remember The Titans for basketball fans, Glory Road is yet another would-be inspirational true story that follows sports-movie conventions. Jul 23, 2008 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader First-time director James Gartner observes all the rituals--the coach busting chops, the team sneaking out to party--but the players are indifferently characterized and the civil rights story has a fake Black History Month feel. Mar 25, 2008 Full Review Brian Tallerico UGO Trying to make a sports movie for the entire family is understandable, but it makes a complicated story like Glory Road feel more like Disney than reality. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review Rachel Wagner Rachel's Reviews (YouTube) Underrated sports movie from Disney with an inspirational true story Nov 14, 2021 Full Review Alberto Abuín Espinof A very lazy movie. [Full Review in Spanish] Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Marcianne Miller Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) If you're a basketball fan, you'll love it. If you're a parent looking for movie inspiration for your offspring, see it as a family outing. For everyone else, Glory Road is an accessible time capsule of American history. Rated: 4/5 Aug 26, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
