      Phil Gallo Variety Hoosier coach Knight's media profile has been so high for so long, his portrait is complete; Season on the Brink fails to build on that media-created persona. Mar 3, 2019 Full Review Howard Rosenberg Los Angeles Times A Season on the Brink is a movie on the brink, as it ploddingly follows Knight and his Hoosiers during the 1985-86 season. Jan 24, 2018 Full Review John A. Nesbit ToxicUniverse.com Feinstein's source book provides sufficient detail to humanize the controversial coach and explain his philosophy, but ESPN goes for the cheap shot instead and doesn't even reach the rim. Rated: 2/5 Nov 13, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Overly dramatic representation of an already overly dramatic man. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Overly dramatic representation of an already overly dramatic man. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Dennehy plays Bobby Knight.. I think he does a great job portraying him. Watch the R rated version. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a bad film, it was good. I only watched it to see James Lafferty from One Tree Hill, but the film itself ended up being worth watching too, and not just for James. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member I remember when this came on ESPN. It was the beginning of their string of terrible "original movies" series. There wasn't a whole lot to it except for a lot of cursing and yelling. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Dennehy's portrayal is spot-on!
