User reviews on Blind Side
Great story! Great presentation! Actors hit their mark! And all of it is true to the end. Hollywood probably hyped a few scenes to add to the Drama. Somehow, true life sports stories seem to reach out to alot more fans than one would think. In this movie, you don't really have to be a sports fan or like sports because it tells the story of real life and it has a heartwarming ending. Go see it and feel good about yourself and others.
I liked this movie alot. Perhaps the greatest reason is that my 10 and 11 year olds found it uplifting and sad. It was a real eye-opener for them about the trials of some disadvantaged people and how they can rise above their circ**stances. I thought Sandra Bullock was great - in fact, it is one of the few movies I have seen her in where I think "oh, it's the same old Sandra". I forgot it was her - she really took over the character well. Lots of tears for sad and happy reasons. I was a little irritated by the corny, smart alec kid. Irrespective, it was just an inspiring, uplifting movie.
This is an awesome movie- the story line will hit you right at home. It deals with peep pressure, sports, family love, being thankful, and helping others. This is a movie that mom, dad, hubby, wifey, son and daughter will enjoy- its a movie everyone must see!
This is the first movie in a LONG TIME that makes me feel so proud to be part of the human species...imagine if all of us did what this true life family did....if all of us...especially those of us who have far too much and are a little nutty as a result of our plentitude...Congratuations,Sandra Bullock for taking on such a Christlike role...what we all should be to those less fortunate than us!
I just saw this movie tonight. It is perhaps the BEST true-life story account, that I have ever seen.
Most movies of this type focus mainly on how tough the main character's life was, and how their life was a complete disaster, up until the last 30 minutes of the movie. Not in this case. This one actually shows how Michael Oher grows in a family. It shows how no matter who you are, as long as you have a family to love you, and guide you, you can accomplish anything in life.
If you don't like to cry, laugh, and being on an emotional roller coaster that leaves you feeling great when you come out of the movie, then by all means, do not go to this, you won't like it, and you will annoy the people who absolutely adore this movie, the cast, and the story.
If you want a movie that can show you there is still loving people out there, and there is strength in family(no matter what color you are) then you will not only love this movie, but want to buy it for your personal DVD collection to watch on a regular basis.
I really hope this movie win several awards. It was THAT good.
I'm a big sap when it comes to inspirational sports films. RUDY, FIELD OF DREAMS, HOOSIERS, THE NATURAL, THE KARATE KID...Turn any of those films on and at some point you're likely to see my weep like a kid who fell off the monkey bars. Inspirational sports films are the guy's chick flick. The latest entry into this man cry inducing genre is THE BLIND SIDE, written and directed by John Lee Hanc***, who directed another great sports tearjerker, THE ROOKIE. The true story centers around Michael Oher, a practically homeless and uneducated teenager who is taken in by the Tuohy family. While a little drama is milked out of the Tuohy's white, upper class neighbors' racism, the story is really about how this young man thrives in his new surroundings and goes on to become an NFL offensive tackle. The acting in the film is solid, and Quinton Aaron plays Oher with the right combination of strength and sensitivity, but this movie belongs to Sandra Bullock. She doesn't overtake the movie, but plays Leigh Anne Tuohy with a passion that I think she's been missing in a lot of her recent films. The film is fairly predictable (hey, we know how it ends), but like I said earlier, I'm a sap for this stuff. It may not be FIELD OF DREAMS, but THE BLIND SIDE is good enough to satisfy my inspirational sports film fix.
