The most heartwarming film ever!

I usually don't like the big movies that win all the awards and here the premise is simple and overused: poor African-American kid who looks retarded but is actually quite intelligent gets the attention of a white, Christian family who help him to discover his talent and subsequently lead him to success in his area of expertise, usually sports (football).

Michael “Big Mike” Oher, the young boy in question, is the downtrodden kid from the bad side of town who is taken in by the Touhy family, where he soon becomes one of the family. Sandra Bullock is outstanding as the feisty Leigh Anne and country singer Tim McGraw plays supportive husband Sean credibly. Michael grows to love and care for his family. Because his sense of family is so important to him, he takes his protective instincts t...

The Blindside review

True story of Michael Oher's struggles and obstacles as a teen African-American in a white community (Memphis). Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) adopts "Big Mike" since he had no place to go. The Tuohy accepts Michael to their family by making it legitimate. Sean Jr. "SJ" (Jae Head) assists Michael to be the best blocker on the football team of Wingate Christian school. Terrific performances from the cast and a touching portrayal from Sandra Bullock. The lack of characterization is one of the few qualms I have. One would be the background of Leigh Anne. If only the film delved into analyzing her real purpose in helping Michael. Not much memorable cinematography and score, but the themes of motherhood, family and acceptance coupled with the genuine depiction of the artists really ...

Pure Awesomeness

This was such a great movie. I thought Bullock did an excellent job. This was a very inspirational story that pretty much has you hooked from the beginning. There are some nitpicky things about the film which is why it couldn't get the full four stars. First, we don't really know anything about the Touhys, except, that they are obviously humanitarians. Also, the progression of time is really awkward. You see this tight family bond develop, but as far as we know he's only known them for two weeks. As good as this movie makes you feel, I do wonder how much of it is pure Hollywood. Again, as a whole, this was definitely an really good movie that can be watched over and over again. Bullock definitely deserved the Oscar, maybe not so much because she was the absolute best, but for her career, ...

Deserved the Oscar over Hurt Locker!! Definitely!

The Blind Side is a film about Michael Oher and his inspirational journey in overcoming adversity, turmoil and an uncertain future. I am not that big on writing reviews of movies such as the feel good sports one this one is because they all end the same, but for some reason this movie struck a different cord in me. The reason was because the movie focused more on the path to him achieving greatness then just him being good at football. It showed him rise above his GPA of .06 to succeeding to the Dean's list in college. Being a strtuggling college student once myself I can say that in just doing that there should have been enough to have a movie after him, not including the broke past of a drug addicted mother and gang affiliated friends that was leading him towards the short lived life ...

The Blind Side Review

Amazing movie bout time they made a movie about linemen in football. The acting in this movie was A+. I thought Sandra Bullock did great glad she won Best Actress for her role. Some scenes in this movie were amazing top notch they stood out. This is a great story that needs to be seen and heard by everyone football fan or not it's a great story. Michael Oher came from ground zero to the top it's amazing. Tim McGraw is a decent actor he did good with what he worked with. Quintin Aaron did great as Michael Oher made you believe he was Michael Oher did very good as him. The Supporting Cast did good enough to make this movie what it is. The cameos from the football coaches were great made it more interesting. This movie will inspire people to do good make them want to become something in life...

Best Sports Film of The Year

“The Blind Side” is definitely the best sports film of the past few years. Although it can be quite simplistic at times, it is still enjoyable and Sandra Bullock does indeed give the performance of her career. For many reasons, it is almost “The Sandra Bullock Show”, but by no means is that a bad thing. The film is based on the true life story of footballer player Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), who lived an under-privileged childhood as a result of a drug dependant mother and having to move from foster home to foster home. When he is lost for a place to live, he is taken in by the Tuohy family and is treated as one of their own. Michael shows talent as a footballer because of his huge size and he achieves more than he ever thought possible.

Even though “The Blind Side” deals with hard-h...
