'Glory Road'
(Josh Lucas, Derek Luke, Austin Nichols, Jon Voight, et al / PG-13 / 92 mins / Touchstone)

Overview: This basketball drama is based on the true story of college coach Don Haskins (Lucas), who led his Texas Western team, which featured five African-American starters, to victory over an all-white Kentucky squad in the 1966 NCAA championship, making them the first such team to clinch the title.

Verdict: Sure, 'Glory Road' consists of the usual sports movie cliches, but first-time director James Gartner executes them with terrific assurance in this breathtaking, edge-of-the-seat film. Also know that this slick enterprise is buoyed by a Motown-flavored '60s soundtrack and has an ultra-appealing ensemble cast toboot! Even knowing the outcome, sports fans will cheer the lightning-fast, dynamically edited on-court action. That, in truth, is only slowed by a few lumbering, heavy handed scenes. Inspirational and thrilling, appealing and entertaining, 'Glory Road' is them all.
