Storyline

The inspiring story of the team that transcended its sport and united a nation with a new feeling of hope. Based on the true story of one of the greatest moments in sports history, the tale captures a time and place where differences could be settled by games and a cold war could be put on ice. In 1980, the United States Ice Hockey team's coach, Herb Brooks, took a ragtag squad of college kids up against the legendary juggernaut from the Soviet Union at the Olympic Games. Despite the long odds, Team USA carried the pride of a nation yearning from a distraction from world events. With the world watching the team rose to the occasion, prompting broadcaster Al Michaels' now famous question, to the millions viewing at home: Do you believe in miracles? Yes! Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia

During filming at a residence of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, rowdy residents disturbed filming, by hanging U.S.S.R. flags in the residence windows, reporting the shoot to the fire marshal, yelling distracting taunts at the actors, and even stealing Kurt Russell's chair.

Goofs

When Herb is watching the video of the Soviet team training the players are all wearing CCM helmets. In the 1970s and 1980s that's highly unlikely. Almost all players wore JOFA helmets. See more »

Quotes

Craig Patrick: Hey, Doc, let me ask you a question.
Doc: Well, of course.
Craig Patrick: You've worked with Herb for a long time, right?
Doc: I've known Herb for quite some time.
Craig Patrick: So let me ask you, does he always treat his players like this?
Doc: No... no, this I have never seen. No - but Craig, Herb has a reason for everything he does.
Craig Patrick: Well, he's gonna end up with 20 players who hate his guts.
Doc: Well, maybe if they hate him they won't have time to hate each other.

Good movie
30 March 2004 | by michael-hatchSee all my reviews

I was wary at first of Disney production of this film. I didn't want the cheesy Mighty Ducks type of sports movie, especially when dealing with the awesome task completed by these players. I thought the film makers did a nice job and the movie itself was quite entertaining. I think it exposes a whole generation to the 1980 U.S. hockey team and what they accomplished. Even though I am not a fan of Kurt Russell, I thought he was very good as Herb Brooks. He had the mannerisms and the voice down very well. Russell is a huge hockey fan himself so I know it was honor for him to play Brooks. For die hard hockey fans, this movie will entertain and it does not poison the game action or what it is really like to play hockey.
