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 being pushed by the coach to get to know each other and see past the colour of each others skin the Titans are born and on entering the season they become an unstoppable team.

The Review: Simply the story telling, the inspirational acting and the fact that this is based on a true story makes this film a masterpiece and something truly memorable. As a person who takes an interest in the race relations of the mid 60s and 70s America, this is an educational film that shows me these decades weren't all full of racial hatred. Denzel, once again takes on a convincing role as Coach Boone. Washington embraces roles from this era and he showed us once again why he is considered one of the greatest African American actors of all time. Ryan Hurst who plays Gerry Bertier, and who in my opinion is a very underrated actor gave an exceptional performance when displaying the young white kid full of hate who then learned the error of his ways to become best friends with Julius Campbell his Black athletic equal.

A very good movie which I would highly recommend to the masses.

Denzel Washington helps everyone Remeber the Titans...
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 …

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 ...
