Movie synopsis
Tom Berenger stars in this ESPN movie as Paul "Bear" Bryant, the legendary Texas A&M football coach. Hired in 1954 to turn around the university's struggling football team, Bryant subjected the 100 hopefuls who showed up for training camp to a grueling regimen in the Texas heat. An intense physical test that not many believe they'll survive, players are soon dropping left and right. However, through this test Bryant determines which players have the drive to win, and by the end of summer he has put together a close knit team of 35 football players who believe they can conquer anything.

The "Junction Boys" are a hit with me!

This movie tells the true story of the now-legendary Texas A&M football training camp of coach Paul "Bear" Bryant, held in the heat of the Texas hill country at Junction, Texas, in the summer of 1954.

Two-a-day, and even three-a-day, workouts, in full pads, during a massive heat wave, were enough to make even the heartiest souls sick and weary, but Coach Bryant, at the risk of a number of players, did what he felt he had to do, and came out of Junction at the camp's conclusion, with a team that believed they could do anything.

This is one great football movie, and I recommend it to any sports fan, especially football fans, and particularly to those who prefer college football.

Great movie!

Review For: The Junction Boys (DVD, 2003)

Junction Boys is a great movie! I've seen it probably five times and each time it's just as good. If you like football (at least a little) and are interested in the development of human behaviour (at least a little) then you'll love this movie. It was made for ESPN, so don't expect a "hollywood" style movie. It's character and plot driven, no 3-D glasses needed! Tom Berenger stars in the movie and is wonderful in the role of Bear Bryant, head college football coach.

Junction Boys is good, but not real good.

Not a great movie, but it's ok. Not sure what the point of this movie is since Bryant doesn't feel he did the right thing pushing them so hard at Junction.
His record shows excellent improvement his first three years at Texas, but he had very few players on those teams that made it through Junction. I think they should have done a better job following up how he ran the teams the following two years to show the drastic improvement.
I think he set the standard with the Junction boys and all new recruits had to rise to that standard and that's why they became successful.
I think this movie could have been a lot better. I'm glad I have it, but it doesn't beat my favorite, Miracle.

Junction Boys Review

I bought this movie because it is a really good football movie and really depicted how much Bear Bryant really wanted to win and showed his passion for the game. I love ESPN movies and this one does not disappoint. If you love football, you will love this movie.

A Must See!!!

Review For: The Junction Boys (DVD, 2003)

This is one of the greatest background stories in college football. Bear Bryant is depicted as a hard-nosed, unlikeable coach that shapes up a football team (Texas A & M) that is used to having a free ride when it comes to training for their upcoming season. The story takes place in a west Texas town in the middle of a drought. A definite must see movie for anyone who loves college football and remembers and appreciates "The Bear."
