Movie Reviews

Charlotte Observer - 9/10 by Lawrence Toppman Filmmakers have presented an unvarnished drama about Marshall University and the people who love it, and the results are inspirational.
TV Guide Magazine - 8/10 by Maitland McDonagh "Charlie's Angels" director Joseph McGinty Nichol (aka McG) shows surprising restraint with this emotionally freighted material, weighting the movie heavily towards relationships.
Boston Globe - 8/10 by Wesley Morris The actor's (McConaughey) lovable exuberance is exactly what this heartsick movie needs.
Portland Oregonian - 8/10 by M. E. Russell Often as not, the movie works. Here and there, it works kind of beautifully.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Jessica Reaves Surprisingly restrained and undeniably entertaining.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James Berardinelli We Are Marshall is precisely what one expects from a true sports story: it's uplifting and inspiring.
Baltimore Sun - 8/10 by Chris Kaltenbach The result is a movie that inspires without pontificating and plays on the heartstrings without pounding on them incessantly.
Miami Herald - 8/10 by Connie Ogle Equally thrilling and wrenching, the film is an absolute must for anyone who loves sports and an eloquent explanation for those who don't understand what the fuss is about.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Kevin Crust The film is injected with a refreshing energy whenever McConaughey is on-screen, balancing some of the inherent sadness of the story.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 7/10 by William Arnold To the movie's credit, the cast is better than average.
Washington Post - 7/10 by Stephen Hunter "Lost" star Matthew Fox pitches in with a strong performance as a coach who, by the laws of whimsy, didn't take the final flight home and had to struggle with survivor's guilt.
Christian Science Monitor - 6/10 by Peter Rainer It's a powerful subject, but director McG and screenwriter Jamie Linden haul out every cliché in the playbook.
