VISUAL REVIEW

commentThe Express. Just the Ticket for Brown and Quaid.
As you know, it is based on the life of Syracuse University football player Ernie Davis, the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy.

Dennis Quaid seems to gravitate toward sports, remember The Rookie? And, he was recently named the top golfer among the "Hollywood set" by Golf Digest. This role fits him. Additionally, he knows something about overcoming the odds, in the early 1990s he fought and kicked a cocaine addiction. So his heart really shows in this flick.

As for Rob Brown, this film is right down his alley. in all of his earlier films he has played the role of an African-American high school student who overcomes obstacles (Finding Forrester -2000, Coach Carter -2005, and Take the Lead -2006). And, he is at it again, this time as a college student.

The Express is the type of film that gives us hope. And, therefore important.
