    "I remember my grandpa being a fan of this movie because he used to go to the Milan High School basketball team. He was a junior so Bobby Plump and the others already graduated by the time grandpa enrolled. We watched Hoosiers together and he said there were lots of inconsistencies compared to real life. Still in my opinion, I like how the movie showed how attached the school was to their basketball team. Such sense of community really reflected in the coach's character."

    "I must say that in this movie, much of historical accuracy was sacrificed for tension but this movie was still an enjoyable watch. The tension about racism was so intense back then that the team could not agree among themselves. The actors really did their jobs portraying the tension."

    "This movie is about boxing career of Micky Ward but this is more than that. I felt connected to him by how his family was portrayed in this movie... his family who did nothing but to hold him back even tho he's working to make them happy! I feel sorry for his family but I hated his family due to this. Christian Bale really did out-acted every single cast in this movie!!!"
