Gavin O'Connor directs the sports drama Miracle, based on the true story of the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid. Kurt Russell stars as hockey coach Herb Brooks, who assembles a U.S. team of underdogs. No one thinks they can make it, as they are up against the previously undefeated Soviet hockey team. Despite the odds, Brooks leads the U.S. team to victory. As the 1980 Winter Olympics happen to coincide with the Cold War, the event is interpreted as patriotic. Also starring Eddie Cahill and Patricia Clarkson, Miracle was distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
This is a good movie about over coming amazing obstacles in life. To come from a team of nobodies and individualists, to a team that worked as one and became a family to beat the undefeated team of Russia in the Olympics. A great real life story. A decent watch with some decent acting. Still, it was a movie worth watching, and I recommend watching it when you get the chance.
