Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good We Are Marshall is precisely what one expects from a true sports story: it's uplifting and inspiring. Although the film does not ascend to the pinnacle of its genre (arguably occupied by Hoosiers), it's not too far down the mountain... We Are Marshall stays surprisingly true to the facts, keeping embellishments to the minimum necessary to make the story cinematic.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average The film does palpably capture a sense of the shock and bedlam that followed the crash. But, then it seems to wallow for a while in the grief of an entire college town, unsure of how long to devote to the mourning period. Though We Are Marshall is no doubt built on good intentions, its use of trite "Win one for the Gipper" dialogue, overbearing soaring music and conventional plot devices makes it far too formulaic to truly move us.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
On the evening of Saturday, November 14, 1970, a chartered jet carrying Marshall University's football team, coaches and fans, was on its way home from a hard-fought game in North Carolina. Less than a minute before its scheduled landing at Tri-State Airport, the plane crashed in the Appalachian Mountains, killing everyone aboard: 37 players, eight coaches and university staff, the flight crew, and 25 prominent Huntington citizens who had made the trip as they always did to cheer their "Thundering Herd.”

In the aftermath of this stunning tragedy, university president Donald Dedmon (DAVID STRATHAIRN) prepared to suspend the school's football program for the season—perhaps indefinitely. Assistant coach Red Dawson (MATTHEW FOX), who narrowly missed the ill fated flight, couldn't face going back onto the field.

But in Huntington, Marshall football has always been more than a sport: it's a way of life. And this town would rally to save it.

After some initial setbacks, they found hope and strength in the leadership of outsider Jack Lengyel (MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY), a young coach determined to rebuild Marshall's football program and, in the process, help to heal the community.

Less than a year later, on September 18, 1971, Marshall University's brand new Thundering Herd was poised to stage one of the greatest comebacks in collegiate sports. A raw, youthful and inexperienced squad, patched together under the guidance of Lengyel and Dawson, they would defy overwhelming odds just to march onto the gridiron for the school's first game since the accident.

That season, it didn't matter whether Marshall won or lost. It didn't even matter how they played the game. All that mattered was that they played.
