Great film. It works as a history despite following the typical formula of a Hollywood sports story. Forest Whitaker steals many scenes with his commanding presence. The labour movement sub-plot could have been explored more thoroughly; in some ways that aspect of the plot was more interesting than the ambitions of the young debaters.

Partial redemption lies in the idea that the story is mainly about hope, not hate. (And not really about sexual misdeeds, either.) It's about true empowerment, which requires the passionate engagement of one's mind and will. It rejects postmodernist wish-wash for a clear understanding of truth. It indirectly rejects much of today's hip-hop culture and suggests that the only bling worth anything is a college diploma, a polished mind and a shiny debate trophy. (pluggedin.com)

I understand more than most, why these stories are important, but despite some great actors, it's still pretty cliche heavy. And there's not much of a directorial perspective.

Solidly-produced drama, but follows a very predictable path in the notes it strikes. As a glimpse into America's racism of the 1930s it's compelling. The minor details make for a better historical picture than the main plot. Production-wise it's excellent and every actor is stellar in their performance. It's just a bit too predictable. Also, the actual debating sucks. I've seen better debates in Youtube comments.
