Critic Reviews for The Blind Side

Audience Reviews for The Blind Side

  • Jan 07, 2017
    Excellent. Great film, one of the best sports films ever made.
    Stephen S Super Reviewer

    Sandra Bullock is rapid and compelling in this true story of tragedy-turned-triumph. The Blind Side is an enjoyable that some may consider a bit too soft or safe. Though it won't completely win moviegoers over, they'll still be in awe of the bold lead actress. 4/5

    The Blind Side is well acted, well written, and a fun film to watch. However, the feel good moments become a bit too much after a while, and its tone and story can sometime be unfocused for its own good. Still, The Blind Side is a very good film, and one that is definitely worth seeing.

    Sandra Bullock does give a great performance, and the story is a great one. But the film overall is rather weak, especially due to less-than-stellar performances from Bullock's costars.
