Edward Carter – 3 Stars (Good)
Samuel L. Jackson plays Ken Carter's trainer in a good sports story that delivers a remarkable message to today's high school basketball players who see gambling with life as the only goal in life.
Coach Carter, the owner of the successful sports equipment store and outstanding sportsman of the day, returns to the apple mat, located in the poor area of Richmond (CA). He inherited troops whose bad behavior, poor performance, and virtually no prospect for the future if they fail to promote basketball career. The Richmond High School team is designed to be aesthetical to athletes because they do not require greater expectations, discipline and accountability. Coach Carter is the centerpiece of the story based on the true story of the California team.
Defines the law immediately, carter style, discipline, hard work and accountability. Carter and his players sign a written contract, which requires behavioral norms, dress code and good quality to continue to be eligible to play. Carter believes that the scholarship and ethics must go hand in hand with outstanding basketball.
With some standards, players are turning 180 degrees and starting to win from the start of the season with more games unbeaten. Then the community's attention and praise begins to plummet, and the players remain overlooked and ignore class attendance and studies. Carter realizes that many of his players are almost flawed and take immediate action, trapping his team, and stopping the basketball program until players get the mark in their training. You can imagine the reactions of parents and the community in general.
Coach Carter finds himself under great pressure to let the players go. Probably the only basketball coach in America who can quickly stand against an unbeaten team. He refuses to cave and forcing his players to be held accountable for their performance in both court and court.
This is an incredible story about a coach who will not compromise his values by not compromising his integrity. Coach Carter has a stomach and zeal to stand ready. Listen to what Carter's coach will hear: "You really have to consider the message that these boys are sent by removing the exclusion, the same message that we send as a culture to professional athletes, and that they are above the law. 19659002] "If these boys can not respect the simple rules of the basketball treaty, how long do they think before they are in the wrongdoing?
in Richmond High 30 years ago, I had the same thing, some of my teammates were imprisoned, some of them dead even if we quit exclusion, you do not have to interrupt it and quit. "
is strong, you have to believe it better, ignoring violence, sexual content, bad language, teenage party and drug stuff in this movie, just Hollywood's clumsy way of stereotyping high school basketball players. there are too few recognitions that are not only excellent collegial and professional prospects, but also prominent and valuable students.
However, there are players like Coach Carter inherited, and this movie is an important and necessary statement that we Coach Carter is not interested in pre-career games, he has been fully focused on making young men confident, productive, well-adjusted adults
fortunately, the Carter coach was a great success, the highest opening weekend (24 million dollars) produced by the MTV movie any release because of the fact that this film was not a prize for the most prized winners.
See this movie for the excellent message. And yes, bring your children with you, you need more in the message than you are now in the spotlight and behind you.
