The characters are laughable; the gymnastics are unattractive. There is nothing to recommend this film.
It's a pretty ridiculous story, and screenwriters Evan Archerd and Jeff Benjamin never figure out a way to generate any real suspense, drama or inspiration.
Unfortunately, as far as acting exercises go, Gaylord couldn't score a 5.
Cast and crew are guided by the director from manipulative cliche to manipulative cliche, as everyone tries his or her best to overlook the fact that Gaylord, despite his athletic prowess, has little or no show-business talent.
This whole movie may have been concocted on a synthesizer.
A large portion of the movie is given over to gymnastics competitions, which are not explained or photographed well enough to be very interesting.
Essentially, American Anthem is an idea in search of a screenplay,
It's another example of how our most popular art form has been taken possession by what appear to be extraterrestrial moviemakers from the planet Stallone.
There hasn't been this much raw energy in a film since Rocky. On the other hand all that kinetic force is totally unfocused, leaving a pastiche of undirected elements that never forms a convincing whole.
American Anthem employs some flashy and occasionally effective visuals, but its screenplay and characterization leave much to be desired.
Hey, you got your gymnastics in my after-school special!
This is an odd and unbelievably bad movie.
An interesting movie that centralizes on "motivation" and "integrity". Good movie.
