      El Paso, Texas, at around year 1966. That time, a basketball coach named Don Haskins recently asked to train basketball team Texas Western Miners. In train and prepare the players in college basketball this team, Haskins strategies that make it very tough time, namely combining the players with black skin white. 7 persons registered players black and 5 white players selected to be the core of the team. In practice, Haskins always apply the discipline high regardless of skin color. Yeah, when the situation where racialism still so thick in the area of Southern United States, appear to make the basketball players of color make travesty for most of the population of Texas is white. However, Haskins abstinence surrenders. Finally NCAA competitions begin. The opponent one by one successfully defeated by the Miners, but this basketball club to

      make jealous of other white, terror ultimately obtained by the players Miners, as well as in the case of Haskins and his family. Its spirit of the players when the Miners lost many obstacles they face, but always give Haskins protégé in the spirit of his surrender to abstinence. The top team when they should be faced with a team from the University of Kentucky who are trained by a professional coach, Adolph Rupp. This is the time for the team Miners prove that actually true champion, and can Haskins with his team seize the national basketball champion United States …

      Producer Jerry Bruckheimer seems to want to repeat the success by Remember the Titans (2000), with the return to make a sports film drama based on sport’s history occurred in the United States. Now, Bruckheimer story highlights ...


      • the struggle of Texas basketball team Miners sweep the national championship in the NCAA years around 60. Assigned to a role as the legendary coach, Don Haskins is Josh Lucas (Poseidon). Despite Lucas on the show maximum performance, but yet a little more style of acting as his trainer in the style reminds me on Denzel Washington in Remember the Titans. The match hero, Bobby Joe Hill performed by Derek Luke (Biker Boyz), while the imperious coach, Adoph Rupp performed by Jon Voight (National Treasure). Own director James Gartner to be trusted.

        Indeed, this movie is not a formula similar to Titans, elements of stories about racialism in a while year 60 is enough to dominate the story this movie. However, somehow there are still some aspects that are less maximum of this movie, for instance about the

        Haskins family told only a few, is different with the Titans for instance, where the story of the family coach Boone to get a sizable portion means, but the weaknesses that exist in this movie eliminate with performance will be on a good from Josh Lucas and Jon Voight, who despite only appearing in some scene, but the performance is good enough Set.

        This short film word may be interesting for you fans of the movie-quality dramas sports, but if you like Remember The Titans is a fan or something Bruckheimer to have this movie you must watch. Yeah, behind the scenes rivalry basketball, which is quite interesting in this movie, the story content of this movie is also quite good despite not so special, besides, we also can know the history of sports from other countries the United States.
