REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..When the Game Stands Tall fumbles in several ways, failing to make enough of a connection to convey its inspirational message..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..sadly, the movie dramatizes all of this with reductive situations and stock characters..”
by Erik Lundegaard [Seattle Times]
“..Caviezel's version of the coach settles for simply "quiet." Though it has plenty to recommend it, "When the Game Stands Tall" misses the other half of that equation..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
