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's Remember the Titans is, like Rudy before 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 the school's football team, the Titans, and bigoted tempers flare when a black head coach (Washington) is appointed and his victorious predecessor (Will Patton) reluctantly stays on as his assistant. It's affirmative action at its most potentially volatile, complicated by the mandate that the coach will be fired if he loses a single game in the Titans' 13-game season. The players represent a hotbed of racial tension, but as the team struggles toward unity and gridiron glory, Remember the Titans builds on several subplots and character dynamics to become an inspirational drama of Rocky-like proportions.
Yakin--whose debut, Fresh, was one of the best independent films of the 1990s--understands the value of connecting small scenes to form a rich climactic payoff. Likewise, Washington provides a solid dramatic foundation (his coach is obsessively harsh, but for all the right reasons) while giving his younger co-stars ample time in the spotlight. The result is a film that achieves what it celebrates: an enriching sense of unity that's unquestionably genuine. (Ages 9 and older) --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

However, once it started, I was captivated by it.
The movie is made even better based on the fact it is based on a true story. The jist of it is this... Herman Boone, played by Denzel Wahsinton perfectly, takes over as new head coach at a high school that has been desegregated. Naturally, the town has mixed reactions.
We watch as Boone, uses tactics that neither the players, the parents, the townsfolk or even his assistant coaches like to force the players to not only become a team but also respect each other as people. We watch as friendships form, and as a team forms.
Eventually we watch as the winning football team, and essentially Boone brings the town together.
This movie brings something to the table for everyone. I laughed, I cried, I even cheered during the games. A must see!
This is a great movie for sport lovers, 60's-70's music lovers, or ANYBODY!!
Denzel Washington does a great job playing as the football coach; especially in a time when the tensions between blacks and whites were so great (the football team is both black and white; which is great). There is much pressure on Herman Boone (Denzel), because if he looses one game he will be fired. This pushes him to push his team and to succeed and to all be friends for life... but I don't want to give the ending away. Like the description of the movie, this movie really brings Affirmative Action into the picture. The film is not serious, though; like I said before, there is great music, and many funny parts. I would recommend this movie to anyone-- any age, race or gender.
I would also recommend the soundtrack, which includes:
1. Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
2. Spirit In The Sky - Norman Greenbaum
3. Peace Train - Cat Stevens
4. Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye - Steam
5. Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress) - The Hollies
6. I Want To Take You Higher - Ike and Tina Turner
7. Up Around the Bend - Creedence Clearwater Revival
8. Spill the Wine - Eric Burdon & WAR
9. A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall - Leon Russell
10. Act Naturally - Buck Owens
11. Express Yourself - Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band
12. Titans Spirit (Score)
I loved this movie, and I hope you have a chance to see this wonderful and meaningful movie!
I just loved REMEMBER THE TITANS, and it's an excellent film. The football scenes are even awesome, too. On the Disney Channel before this film came out in theaters, I saw a special on this film and learned that the members of both teams actually learned how to play football - they practiced together before the shooting of the film like a real team! So everything you see in this film is real. The acting by the entire cast (especially Denzel Washington and all of the teammates), is surperb. You can't find a better sports-related film than REMEMBER THE TITANS!
