The Express : Ernie Davis Story
The Express was one of the true-story based sport movie. Well I am a fan of sport movies. All most all of A list sport movies I have watched. The Express was the latest which I watched.
The movie told us the story about Ernie Davis the first African-American football player which got the highest award in the American football history. If you saw the film, then I believe you know why he got the award. Based on a true story, “The Express” follows the extraordinary life of college football hero Ernie Davis (Rob Brown), the first African American to win the Heisman Trophy. His fight for equality and respect forever changed the face of American sports, and his story continued to inspire new generations.
The movie took set in the early 50's-60's. The racism was still a big issue. So you know what happen right?
You don't have to be a football fan to love this movie. I highly recommend it.
