Critical Analysis of Remember the Titans

Critical Analysis of "Remember the Titans"

I think that this is an excellent movie. Not only is it an excellent movie in the obvious plot, but also in the underlying message which slowly manifests throughout the movie. Racism is that message. That underlying message is what I am going to discuss.
