STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –

 

 

1) Not your typical “escape to victory” sports movie
2) The movie is single-handedly driven by Samuel L. Jackson.

 

 

Cons –

 

 

1) 136 minutes is little too long for a sports movie with little substance.It should be TV movie of 90 minutes.
2) Ashanti pregnancy sub-plot is useless and slows down the pace of the movie.

Principal Garrison : For some of these kids, this basketball season will be highlight of their lives.
Coach Carter: Well, I think that’s the problem. Don’t you.
