RE­MEM­BER THE TI­TANS (2000) 7MATE, 6.30PM, PG, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Pol­ished if slightly cliched sports drama that casts Den­zel Washington as Her­man Boone, a ded­i­cated foot­ball coach hired in 1971 to run a team of high school­ers. Racial ten­sions en­sue within the group and the com­mu­nity at Boone’s ap­point­ment. But he sets about trans­form­ing his boys into a win­ning team – mer­ci­lessly train­ing them like they’re a mil­i­tary unit. More sub­tle but no less crowd-pleas­ing than most of pro­ducer Jerry Bruck­heimer’s work, with Washington’s emo­tive per­for­mance the key to its success. ★★★
