Sports movies no matter how well made  and how diverse the cast is you always know what is going to happen before it happens and that's okay because  how they got there and how they made it all the way to the end  and became united as a team is the best part of watching these movies. And "Remember the Titans"  reminds us  of that.



"Remember the Titans" is powerful, brilliant, witty, heart breaking and almost a tear jerker it's an amazing true story  of  how one man   brought together a divided team  and unified a school and a whole town  at the same time. It's got some great strength behind it mostly due to the powerful appeal and performances of Denzel Washington and Will Patton that drive this film all the way to success and help propel  this into sports film greatness.


Denzel Washington  gives a powerhouse  performance as the tough and opinionated head coach  of the Titan Tigers Washington is one of two major keys  to keeping this clique sports film from being a total drag. And it is he who brings up the quality of the film to new heights. Will Patton  is the second major player in this  film while Washington brings some of the power Patton brings the rest and then some. Patton  almost over shadows  Washington in this film and is  a standout among the young cast (as him and Washington are the only seasoned actors) He gives a emotional and tough love touch to his  take no bull character, much like Washington. The young cast  is great and are really  well chosen  and diverse  in there personalities and racial  out looks. They all bring something different to the table  and it is   welcomed.


"Remember the Titans" will have you  cheering, crying  and laughing  all in the same  period of time it's a great film with some major heart and sou infused into it's gritty and intense football orientated story. It will enthrall you and enchant you  and when the film is over  you will  Remember the Titans.
Denzel Washington helps everyone Remeber the Titans...

I actually thought this movie was flawed but the way it exuded that 'feel good' kinda feeling was exceptional. This is among my favorite sports movies. Nice one.

Thank you very much. And I felt the same but it is like every sports film flawed but worthy, at least the good ones anyways.

The Story: In 1971 the T.C. Williams High School is desegregated and Herman Boone Played by Denzel Washington is hired as the Head Coach of the football team in place of the previous coach Bill Yoast played by Bill Patton. This replacing causes an outrage as the white kids refuse to play for a black coach. In order to get the white and black students to play together Boone hires Yoast as his defensive coach and takes the kids to camp to give them a tough lesson in brotherhood. After hard work and …

This movie should be remembered for its accurate portrayal of race relations. Denzel Washington is shown as a no nonsense coach who does not care about ther ace game that seems to shadow this movie. He has a job to do and just wants to do it without any fan fare. Different points of view are represented throughout this movie as there are some people in favor of integration and some who are not. It goes to show you that some people can change and others are a lot less willing. In the end, Denzel …

About this movie

Wiki

While on the surface, high school football may seem like an innocent game played by the young, for the young, it is, in fact, much, much more. For millions, including many fans who are well removed from their high school years but who love to sit in those creaky bleachers every Friday night/Saturday morning, it is something akin to a religion. Director Boaz Yakin's REMEMBER THE TITANS captures the heart of high school football while tackling the sins of its fathers, chronicling the true story of the undefeated 1971 T.C. Williams team of Alexandria, Virginia, which was the first integrated high school team in the state.

Denzel Washington brings his ever-powerful presence to the role of coach Herman Boone, who is brought in to oversee the transition to integration. Though Boone is eventually successful as a coach, the townspeople dissaprove of him because he replaces the popular, entrenched former coach, Bill Yoast (Will Patton). At first, coach Yoast resents being supplanted, while coach Boone...

With only one major star (Denzel Washington), an appealing cast of fresh unknowns, and a winning emphasis of substance over self-indulgent style, Boaz Yakin'sRemember the Titansis, likeRudybefore it, a football movie that will be fondly remembered by anyone who sees it.Set in Alexandria, Virginia, in 1971, the fact-based story begins with the integration of black and white students at T. C. Williams High School. This effort to improve race relations is most keenly felt on ...
