Consensus: An inspirational crowd-pleaser with a healthy dose of social commentary, Remember the Titans may be predictable, but it's also well-crafted and features terrific performances.

Maybe it's all true. But one is always a little discomfited when life, or a movie, imitates weary melodramatic patterns this slavishly.

The result is the sort of deeply massaged truth that isn't stranger than fiction -- it's worse than fiction.

The emphasis on the players' developing mutual trust, is absorbing to watch and cleanly directed.

Washington and the others score in this predictable but rousing film where the big victory is over attitudes.

Michael Dequina

The absence of innovation can easily be forgiven.

Extremely formulaic sports drama, but with a great leading performance from Denzel Washington, this film becomes something more special.

This movie was just okay. It had a nice plot but in the end it was just another football movie. Acting was pretty good, and the moral was pretty sweet. Its… More
