Movie Review by Leslie
September 4th, 2006

Samuel L. Jackson as Ken Carter played an outstanding and amazing man of principles and rules. He goes back to his high school 30 years after being one of the best basketball players to ever play at Richmond High. He has a great sporting good's business but decides he wants to be a coach and try to bring this team of misfits back to the Glory Days....he is hard on the team, making them sign a contract to go to class everyday, to sit in the front row of the class , to wear a tie on game days and to keep a 2.3 GPA...when a few team members fall behind in their classes, Coach Carter locks the gym and forfeits a game till all of his team brings their grades up. He is ridiculed, harassed and hassled for his decision but stands strong...and actually quits. He believes that these boys can work hard and play hard and even possibly go on to college. His team shows what that have learned by doing what he has asked and they will not play until everyone is up to speed with their classwork. They do it and actually make it to the State finals against one of the best basketball teams in the State. The ending was a tribute to a man and his dream and I would tell everyone to see this flick...great story, great acting and it is nice to know that there are still people out there who want what is best for all kids...no matter color, status, or ability...

Nice job. Sounds like a strong film. I haven't seen it yet, but I think you've sold me on it :)
