Did You Know?


This is the same team that beat the Permian Panthers in the movie Friday Night Lights. See more »


While the film recognizes a "tie" with rival Duncanville, the tie-breaking rules at the time were determined by first downs. Both teams had the same number of first downs so the second tie-breaker was the number of times the teams penetrated the other team's 20-yard-line. Duncanville had more "penetrations" and were recognized as the winner of the game. See more »

Like everyone's been saying... good message, bad film
3 August 2018 | by lucaswestbladeSee all my reviews

I totally understand the want to rate the film highly because the message the film is send. The filming was fine and it seems the actors do a good job. The problem is that the story is not told well. It feels really disconnected and jumpy. Others have compared it to Remember the Titans and Friday Night Lights I disagree. In those movies I felt a connection to each character and watched them grow or connect with the viewer throughout the film. I really missed that here. I know I'm supposed to want Carter High to make it through the challenges it faces throughout the film, but I didn't feel an emotional connection to want the see Carter overcome.
