Critic Reviews of "Glory Road"Chicago ReaderMarch 25, 2008
First-time director James Gartner observes all the rituals--the coach busting chops, the team sneaking out to party--but the players are indifferently characterized and the civil rights story has a fake Black History Month feel.AV ClubNovember 27, 2006
An underdog sports movie by the numbers.Ebert & RoeperJanuary 26, 2006
Glory Road is a rousing and worthy tribute to one of the most important college basketball teams and one of the most important championship games of all time.Village VoiceJanuary 17, 2006
The team's accomplishments are here diluted into fodder for another of the producer's feel-good man-weepies.USA TodayJanuary 13, 2006
An appealing Disney sports movie that underplays its potential, Glory Road is at least a more satisfying basketball saga than last year's Coach Carter.Toronto StarJanuary 13, 2006
Lacking the gritty reality of the 1994 documentary Hoop Dreams, this Jerry Bruckheimer film, directed by newcomer James Gartner, converts a year in the life of a basketball team into a very conventional triumph of the underdogs.ComingSoon.netMarch 22, 2011
Like most sports films Glory Road works best when it is actually showcasing its sport ... off the court, however, it's alternately flat and didactic. Director Gartner goes to great pains to drill the films message in, early and often.Bright Lights Film JournalFebruary 02, 2009
Glory Road doesn't have any of the individual moments that humanized Hoosiers, The Rookie, and Miracle. It's a feel-good sports movie by the numbers.Screen InternationalJuly 23, 2008
Playing out like Remember The Titans for basketball fans, Glory Road is yet another would-be inspirational true story that follows sports-movie conventions.DallasBlack.comMay 02, 2007
Why must Hollywood lace every African-American drama with elements of comedy, as if black people find everything comical?CinematicalApril 08, 2007
It isn't meant to be a movie that makes us think, or that makes us uneasy in any way. It's meant to make us feel good.UGOMarch 24, 2007
Trying to make a sports movie for the entire family is understandable, but it makes a complicated story like Glory Road feel more like Disney than reality.
