The movie montage is a truly magical place where miracles can happen right before your eyes.
With the montage, a sports team can go from last to first in a matter of minutes.
An aspiring boxer can cram months' worth of training into the duration of a single song.
Championships can be won, and dreams can be accomplished without a single word being spoken.
Indeed, the movie montage is a beautiful representation of the way life should be. Some of the very best montages in the history of cinema have come from sports movies (And in fact, four of the montages featured on this list are from the same sports movie series—I'll give you one guess as to what it is.).
Join me on an epic journey through 11 great sports movie montages that have turned failures into victories and nobodies into heroes in less time than it takes to click through a list on the Internet.
Note: There are many, many more great sports movie montages than are included on this list. Not all are available online. Feel free to share your favorites in the comment section.
