songbirdmc This is a wonderfully heartwarming story. If you haven't seen this movie yet you should. It's an incredible story of love, selflessness, and hope.
Kazuto KIrigaya I loved it it was amazing i felt that (spoiler alert) he finally stood up to those other people and showed them he's not a push over I felt that more school should do all around student's because everyone can learn from it no one is stupid no one is dumb everyone have there own talent's and his happened to be protection and you know what that's a great skill to have in my opinion
Tyler Roeder This movie is a must see! Its heart-warming story and great actors are surely credible for its success. Michael Oher, a troubled child, was taken into care by Leanne Tuohy, an Ole Miss grad and donar, and was given a home, family and a better life. This care allowed Micheal to do what he loved, and succeed. Based on a true story, this movie tells the story of a kind-hearted family who helped make someones life better. We can all take away from this movie, and learn to care more for the less fortunate and help to make the world a better place.
maddiekate-49673 If you love inspirational plot lines, small but important twists, innocent humor and elements of racial prejudice, then this is the film for you. However, if you do not tolerate small amounts of tasteful violence, are a young child, or just don't have much of a heart, then this movie probably isn't your cup of tea. So my opinion of this film is that it's a perfect balance of happy and serious to make for a remarkable re-enactment of a true story. Sandra Bullock shows a whole new side to her acting abilities with her spot on southern accent, and heartwarming punctuality. Behind her at first seemingly hard and cold front, you quickly come to realize, is a sweet Christian lady, who has much more empathy than she would ever let on. This film is made even better with the well known faces of Lily Collins and Tim McGraw as part of the Tuohy family. The inspirational variation of social economic status and racial prejudice adds diversity and relatability to the film. Michael Oher's sad and dangerous past really touches you, and makes LeAnne Tuohy realize that there is a large social gap, and the impacts it can have. Some might say that the film had too much violence, and may have been too intense at parts. But, these scenes were very necessary to feel empathy and emotion towards Michael and others like him, that lived like that. The beautifully placed humor, and Sandra Bullock and Jae Head's personalities, really made the film. It lightened the mood of the seriousness of many situations, and just made you feel good about what was going on. The look into different social economic situations gives you a feeling of gratitude and privilege, that really makes you feel compassion towards Michael. Others might feel that the background and buildup to Michael and his football career is slow, and uneventful. But these events build a story in your mind to how Michael lives. It gives you a strong impression of what his life was like, and why his life is like the way it is now. It's an important part of understanding Michael Oher and his sad story. So I urge you, if you love inspirational stories of football and breaking the social economic status, then you will love this movie. If you like seeing how someone so broken can accomplish so much, then this is for you. Don't waste your time with made up films about aliens, enjoy a very touching and remarkable re-enactment of an edifying true story.
