Coach Carter

The film is based on a true story that occurred in 1999 in Richmond, California. The coach of the school basketball team Ken Carter took a mid-season unprecedented decision by banning players, not experienced a single defeat, to go to the site due to low performance in school. In the end, the team missed two games in the League, and the young basketball players were denied access to the gym until, until they began to study well. The act has caused both the Carter and approval, and sharp criticism from parents, players and school leadership. Among the team members was the son of a coach, admitted later in a prestigious school.

My heart was broken. And almost began to cry. Brilliant picture. A brilliant Director. Brilliant actors. A brilliant coach. And brilliant team. This is a Richmond. These guys crossed themselves. This trainer did it all.

What is the future adolescents raised by street? Have teenagers who like to smoke weed and get drunk in the trash? What they school future? Nothing. Imagine. They one of basketball. They one in school. Only the gang. Only cool.

But their life comes Carter. Coach Carter. He came learn to play basketball students, he came to teach boys. For them, he was "the nigger of the village". For they were the Champions of the future. And he made them Champions. He made them people. And let it was given to him great difficulty. Very great difficulty. He would you risk your family, life, reputation. But it is not yielded. And won. Of pupils he did the students of the boys did men. He made them people gave the future. And that they grateful.

The acting is amazing. Not only adults, but the guys played great. "Believe" — say Stanislavsky. And I believe.

And let all of this is a bit idealized. Let. This brilliant. And that thanks to them. The Director, the actors, the whole team who worked on this movie. And they have spent only $ 30 million, but they made a masterpiece. We don't need special effects. We need a quality movie. Whom the the film and is.

And a place of honor in my film library.

I love movies about basketball after the first season of the youth series "one tree Hill" ("survival"). The writer of this series was also mark Schwan. I'm not an athlete, and never fully I can understand that will power that drives people who devoted their lives daily working on his flesh and his spirit. Sometimes to cope with temptations for the body harder than to overcome the desires of the soul. "Coach Carter" — the film is about those who won't the club have conquered your fears, complexes, prejudices, unhealthy ambitions and lazy — eternal stumbling blocks on the path to success.

"Coach Carter" placed the audience at 134 place in the "Top-250" in KP on the 7th position in the list of "Sports". And it has only 44 reviews... what words that describe the movie is not enough. And I apologize in advance for the confusion and emotionality.

When the screen goes out, and it ran the credits after watching a good movie, the viewer asks himself questions. "Coach Carter" makes me ask myself, "what do I fear?.. And could I work in team? Ill be I heart the fate of the guy who are familiar with only a few weeks?". Yes, this film led me to some introspection, and really just not pass your consciousness and the dark corners of the soul, brightening rays of good humor, humanity and, you know, something like that... it might be called love people.

The most important thing — this story is based on real events, and indeed there was a coach Carter (in the film Samuel L. Jackson), who saved the lives of so many disadvantaged adolescents. And phrase of the headmistress Harrison (Denise Dowse), like this season was "the only bright spot in their life" refuted — this season opened their way to light future. After all, coach Carter "I came to teach boys", and they "become men". Their "victory in the hall" became "the key to victories life", and this is truly so. A beautiful Timo Crusoe (Rick Gonzalez) on the fears characterizes as not only a basketball team of the film "Coach Carter", and all the youth of the world.

By the way, if you expect "Coach Carter" from the category of vacationer movie — you're wrong. I also initially not expecting anything too serious and history Timo Crusoe I was really sober and brought feelings.

A separate topic would the story of Kenyon's stone (Bob brown) and Kyra (Ashanti). But it's my world view, but not the film. For I was a nasty one time of Kaira had an abortion, and when she announced this Kenyon, it only regretted that wasn't it at this time there... And how child? About not question, it's sad.

Himself Jackson, performing the role of coach Carter, coped... no, so to not speak. When he desperate the frustration of pain throws reports performance of the players it hero table, my heart stops, and it's not think about the actor — if you dipped directly in the past the real Carter.

In General, everything is built very harmonious and thanks for audio track...

Thank you, sir!

The film, which I applaud standing.

After viewing these pictures on the face of the paradox. Really want to praise you for anything in particular, but begin to list and... have praise for all at once.

But one thing can not be noted. Perhaps it is the only film based on real events, which could be removed from their titles, the circumstances, and nothing not to lose.

The story is simple, narrated by simply the the language which is understood by absolutely everyone, regardless of status of age. But any person ever tried to create or retell the story, knows what this is easy. If a different pattern to remove the greatness of its the Director, the mega-junk of the actors, and the"hidden" moral message, nothing will remain. In the Crankcase all this is not beginning.

Well, of course the main character. On the entire film from it is impossible to look away. Want to see how he will behave in a difficult situation, I want to know how would it handled your difficult situation.

Bravo! Look all without options!
