Movie Summary

Director:
Gavin O'Connor (II)
Released:
2004
Rating:
PG
Miracle is the movie everybody loves -- Miracle. Filled with exhilarating nonstop hockey action and heart-racing suspense, it's the inspiring true story behind one of the greatest moments in sports history; the 1980 United States ice hockey team's triumphant Olympic victory against the Soviet Union. Kurt Russell gives a brilliant performance as the dynamic and determined coach Herb Brooks, who had an impossible dream -- beat the seemingly unbeatable Soviets at their own game. Starting with a handpicked group of 26 undisciplined kids, Brooks coached them to play like they never played before, and turned 20 of them into a team that believed they could achieve the unachievable -- and in the process, united a nation with a new feeling of hope.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Powered by an excellent Kurt Russell performance, Miracle treats old-fashioned, emotional material with an intelligence that respects both the story and the audience.

  • 80

    Variety Joe Leydon

    Key to drama's success is the artful underplaying by Kurt Russell in the lead role of Herb Brooks.

  • 60

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Does a yeoman's job of recycling the day-old dough that passes for its story.
