#23. Remember The Titans - Review

Remember the Titans Poster

I am a sucker for sappy sports films. I actually cried during Hardball. Yes, that Hardball, with Keanu Reeves coaching the inner-city youth baseball team. I am not going to spend much time on this film, mostly because I have too much work to do before my Korea trip. I will say this film is worth watching, if you like sports films or Disney “feel-good” films. If your anything like me you WILL cry at least once while watching this movie, which is ok… no one is going to judge you.

Remember the Titans tells a very sweet story of the first integrated American high school football team. It is Disney, so at times the film can come on pretty strong with its themes, but I wouldn’t call it preachy, or even distracting. Denzel Washington, as always, is awesome, although I wouldn’t say this is new territory for him. The strong black man going up against the system is Washington’s bread and butter, but Titans is one of his best performances.Denzel Washington in Remember the Titans

I should also mention you do not have to like football to enjoy this flick, but it will probably help. The majority of the film takes place on the field, and the action scenes are well thought out and exciting. I am sure most football fans will enjoy this flick, since it treats the characters and the sport with more respect then something like Varsity Blues and keeps the teenage angst to a minimum, unlike Friday Night Lights.


Expect a few more of these shorter posts. I am going to try and catch up on the movies I have seen before I leave next Wednesday.
