Very enjoyable film, whether your into American sports or not. I found it inspirational and moving. James Caveizel great in the role, as always and the younger cast excellent as well. Highly recommended!

Interesting story..

Interesting story and how he did it and the establishment (other high schools) didn't think things were fair. Come on it's America and it's the same for anyone; you'd want to go too the best school for your field of interest

Not what I expected (When the Game Stands Tall).
Verified purchase
Not what I expected. We bought this DVD as Recommended by Amazon as we bought "Facing the Giants". True both are American High School 'Football' but there is very little Christian message in this one and it's very hard to follow - both the speech and the tactics. This film is very much about the game whereas "Facing the Giants" has a strong relationships side story.
