Fantastic pic for most of the first hour or so, but virtually everything during the last hour left me at best wanting, and at worst, totally taken out of the film due to how formulaic the story was, and how badly the interactions between this talented cast were scripted.

Predictable feel-good drama. But for Production company WWE Films, its not bad.

Finally John Cena has a good movie and a good role. This movie will hit you hard in the heart

OMG I'm never left scratching my head like when I read critics on a movie, you can bet if the Critics do not like the movie it will be good and it was an awesome movie. A little chic flixy and wrestling for the guys but they just might get smoke in their eyes while watching ;~)

Such a sappy story about an underdog and his dysfunctional family. Of course I liked it a lot. Lol. I do love sappy.

Ok so Patricia Clarkson and Danny Glover raise this movie SO FAR up above what is actually is, it's astounding. The filming is pretty good. Some of the other actors are great, some, are just not very good...I;m sorry John Cena does NOT look under 30. He looks nearly 40, like he could be Patricia Clarkson's boyfriend. I'm so sorry if he should read this, but reality is reality and trying to fit a square peg in a round hole makes things worse in the film biz! That kind of stuff ruins careers. Anyway, this could have been a pretty good story but it fell short in story telling and most of all what truly definitely destroys this film so that it has a 17% here on Rotten Tomatoes is the music. Anyone who made significant choices in the making of this film should make sure the Music Supe of this film NEVER works again, that person SUCKS! The soundtrack is SO important for atmosphere and emotional connection, the music is SO lame I just could NOT finish watching, it was too painful and not worth it. I've seen Patricia Clarkson ad Fanny Glover in MANY other great roles.

The film isn't bad but it is not great either. It feels like an after school special. The film reminded me of movies like Win Win, Vision Quest, The Fighter, Invincible, and the Karate Kid. Only those movies were better than this one. They needed a better director and a better script. I didn't like that they had songs in the film during scenes that didn't need songs. The film is also predictable.

Patricia Clarkson shines in the film. Her best scene is with Cena in jail. Cena, I thought was better here than in 12 Rounds or The Marine. I would like to see him do a film with Mark Wahlberg. Danny Glover also shines in his supporting role. Devon Graye and all the other cast members felt miscast in their roles. Devon has no chemistry with Cena or Clarkson.

The film is worth checking out for the performances of Clarkson, Glover, and Cena.

It's not terrible by any means, and it has some moments, but by no means is it legendary!

A second-rate sports/family drama, containg no groundbreaking performances or even dramatic story. The script provides weak empathy towards either brother and it ends on an all too expected finale. When the soundtrack is so much better than the film, there are serious issues.

Not the best John Cena movie, but it was fun. A good story, but it didn't really focus on bullying as itt proclaims it does. A good watch.

Great film. One of my favourites.
½ July 18, 2011
the film is well down until the ending which is just silly.

It's about a high school kid bringing together an estranged family through wrestling. Very underrated, and shame on critics panning it, just because it is WWE Films. Patricia Clarkson gave a great performance.
