It’s Olympic time and if you are in a sporty mood, go for this sports drama based on true events took place in 1971. It is the story of a black coach who had to handle a racially diverse team without losing a game else he would be fired. Coach boon (Denzel Washington) had the challenge of keeping the team motivated and going when half of the team was not ready to follow. You’ll get the idea here…
Blue Stanton: Coach we need a water break, we been out here all day!
Coach Boone: What did you say?
Blue Stanton: We need a water break sir.
Coach Boone: A water break? Water is for cowards. Water makes you weak. Water is for washing blood off that uniform and you don’t get no blood on my uniform, boy you must be outside yo mind! We are going to up-downs, until Blue is no longer tired, and thirsty.
Watch how he managed to survive, you’ll get a lesson or two.
The movie entertains throughout as well as inspires you to stick to your work ethics against all odds.
Those who have not seen Denzel much, just observe how often he repeates the questions before answering them.
