...e no deeper than prison to a young man with such complicated thoughts and the ability to clearly state it to others.
All though most underdog movies have a dynamic who makes a dramatic change and even have a certain message behind the movie however, the message in Coach Carter isn’t the typical message of such movies, which are the cliches of “never to underestimate your opponent” or “hard work pays off.” This messages was telling its audience to always do your best or “shine” to raise the bar for others and to not be afraid or intimidated by others or of the challenges that come to giving your best, rather than degrading or belittling yourself in an attempt to help others. This original, versatile message, I believe, can be applied to almost everyone in whatever they do or what to accomplish in their life, which is what makes this movie such great underdog movie.
