Movies in Review (DOCUMENTARY): “Undefeated”

Oh how I enjoy documentaries. It’s a way of getting slapped in the face with a taste of a reality outside of your own, which in my opinion, may offer a new perspective on life. This is exactly what this documentary did. It follows the Memphis Manassas Tigers HS football team as they try to have a winning season, after suffering years of losses. Within the first 10 min you will find yourself shaking your head as the coach is running down the 1st 2wks of practice with his team, which included 4 players either being shot or arrested…omg. Now that’s a dose of reality folks…

Bill Courtney is the coach who has volunteered six yrs of his life to try to change this program and the young men who are in it. It is amazing to see how much these young men, who could care less about anybody, let alone themselves, and have the utmost respect for their coach. Some players which we are given a closer look into their own personal lives are Money, O.C. Brown, and Chavis. All are dealing with very similar circumstances, but each one handles them very differently. All I know is that you will find yourself vested in these young athletes. I found myself shedding tears of joy and pain. Their football journey seems short, but it’s no easy fete when its an uphill climb. If you find this documentary playing in your area, do not let it pass you by. If it doesn’t come your way, make it as definite rental…A-

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.

  1. Glad to know that you rate this one so highly. Documentaries often can make you feel good or bad, but one thing is certain, they do bring a greater dose of reality which then often makes you thankful for your own situations, however trying or enjoyable.

    I don’t know when I’ll get to see this but I’ll keep a lookout for it.
