More than worth a look.,
This review is from: Coach Carter [DVD] (DVD)
I love it when I watch a film that that wasn't big enough to receive any pre-release hype nor did I go to see it at the cinema- and then it proves to be one of the better films of the year. I'm sure we've all watched films like this and this was definitely one of those for me. It is a bit of tired story though team doing badly gets new coach who then saves the day and I think that if anyone else was cast instead of Samuel L Jackson then this film would be lost to mediocrity. For me it succeeded being cheesy without actually being cheesy or corny if you know what I mean and there is an interesting twist to the coaches methods. Anyhow I won't spoil the story for you but it is very good, and if you're a basketball and/or Jackson fan it's worth adding to your collection but rent it first as I don't think I could sit through it too often!
