[Film] Coach Carter

Based on a true story, Coach Carter is more about the social problems facing the poor black students in the states than the sport of basketball. While the movie is mediocre in all artistic aspects, it's message is important and inspirational. Yes, the movie is emotionally manipulative with its embarrassingly corny dialogue and clichéd storylines, but its message about the failure of the American ... read more

In 1999, Ken Carter, a successful sporting goods store owner, accepts the job of basketball coach for his old high school in a poor area of Richmond, CA, where he was a champion athlete.

"20/8/17 Underdog's tale of a failing school and their basketball team that hires Samuel L. Jackson's Coach Carter, who is determined to teach the team about discipline, respect and to have a better life after school. It falls into all the cliches of a sports film but is helped by an energetic performance from Jackson, who refuses to phone in his performance and gives depth to his creation."
