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. As much dismayed by the poor attitudes of his players as well as their dismal play performance, Carter sets about to change both. He immediately imposes a strict regime typified in written contracts that include stipulations for respectful behavior, a dress code and good grades as requisites to being allowed to participate. The initial resistance from the boys is soon dispelled as the team under Carter’s tutelage becomes a undefeated competitor in the games. However, when the overconfident team’s behavior begins to stray and Carter learns that too many players are doing poorly in class, he takes immediate action. To the outrage of the team, the school and the community, Carter cancels all team activities and locks the court until the team shows acceptable academic improvement. In the ensuing debate, Carter fights to keep his methods, determined to show the boys that they need to rely on more than sports for their futures and eventually finds he has affected them more profoundly than he ever expected.

Film Review

there are many 'based on true events,underdog stories' made into movies.but this one is different.yes,it is inspirational,but it isn't preachy and schmaltzy like so many have been.maybe the studios are finally seeing the light.after all,this is the second recent movie of the genre(that i have seen) to get it right,the other being "Glory Road".as for "Coach Carter",it's a pretty subdued affair.it focuses on a High School basketball coach(Samuel.L.Jackson)who has a vision for the students at his school.not only will they become winners on the basketball court,but they will also be inners off.this means as human beings,they will lose he loser,mediocrity mentality which has been ingrained intro them,by the school system and even their parents.of course,he meets fierce opposition.does he succeed in this vision?well,lets just say things don't go quite the way you might expect them to.this movie is very character and story driven,so don't expect a …

Great movie. The strong position that coach Carter maintains and the stand he was for the team was beautiful. One example is the scene where Timo Cruz was exhausted after having done so many "suicides" and push-ups and he didn't make all of them before that Fri (the due date), and he was quitting when others in the team stepped up for him and did push-ups and suicides. That came out of Carter standing for what he had asked Cruz to do and not stepping off his word because Cruz had done so many.It also demonstrates the power of creating the listening for someone (The old coach introducing coach Carter to the team mentioning his credentials and achievements).A few quotes:"You will have my respect, until you abuse it"."… Now I cannot teach you the game of basketball until your conditioning allows me to do so."

This movie was waaaaaayyyyy too long. It was entertaining but I got to the point where I was wondering "when is this movie going to be over?" I think it could have been cut to 1 hour and 45 minutes without losing any of its appeal. The lockout could have been shorter and when some creative filming it could have still had impact on the audience. And I was unimpressed with the storyline involving Kenyon and his girlfriend. It wasn't integrated into the heart of the movie very well and it always felt like we were cutting over to a soap opera. I was also disappointed with Samuel L. Jackson's acting. I've seen him do better. It felt like he was just going through the motions.
