It's Hurricane Season, 29 April 2010
Author: NickyJ0471 from Warrensburg, MO

I thought this would be a cheap movie given that it Lil Wayne and Bow Wow in the movie but boy was I surprised. Hurricane Season is a great story of triumph in the face of tremendous adversity. It puts you in New Orleans before and after Hurricane Katrina. It showed how people's lives were turned upside down. The life and history of a town swept away in just a few moments. In one of the darker times of our nation's history it illustrates what makes the human spirit so powerful. And how a group of misfits can become brothers and form a collective bond that can accomplish anything. As someone who has watched every sports movie known to man, I dare say this movie is a better basketball movie then Coach Carter. And is easily right up there in inspiration with Rudy. I love how the movie showed such a powerful resiliency from such young men. Move over Remember The Titans, Hurricane Season is ready to take you by storm.
