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 a TV movie of 90 minutes.
2) Ashanti pregnancy sub-plot is useless and slows down the pace of the movie.

 

Quote –
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.
