He is supported by his superiors and his successful experience changes the lives of many young kids. Written by

The Mustangs logo resembles the running horse of the Canadian Football League's Calgary Stampeders; the team that Dwayne Johnson previously played defensive tackle for in 1995. See more »
In the playoff victory, after the long 50 yard completed pass, setting up the final play...before the play starts, there are 11 seconds left. The prior play ended with the receiver getting knocked out of bounds. Then, before the ball is snapped before the last play...the clock is running. That shouldn't have happened...the clock shouldn't run until the ball is snapped. See more »

This was a good movie. It is based on a true story about a man named Sean Porter a real live coach for juveniles played by the "THE ROCK." He wants to coach some 16 and 17 year old juvenile delinquents in a detention facility in hopes of making them change their violent and criminal ways. He wants to teach them team work and to take their minds off gangs and to also learn respect. Since a lot of juveniles return back to their gangs or prison again or end up dead. This movie does send a good message to the youth who are incarcerated. That they can become better people if they are given a second chance. The acting done by "THE ROCK" and "XZBIT" were realistic and inspiring. (8/10).
