The story itself is interesting on how a black youth overcomes adversity, but tragically there is a little to much focus on the 'white republicans' and how they 'save' him. I feel the director could have put a slightly different focus and angle on the movie to demonstrate the actual empowering and inspiring nature that the main actor goes through in order to actual overcome his situation and MAKE HIS OWN decisions on whwether to take aid from upper class folks, to carry forward in a sport that he had never done before, etc.

A hallmark movie trying to be something more and mostly succeeds thanks to solid execution with little schmaltz and a phenomenal performance from Sandra Bullock.

I lied this movie. Made me feel good and bad for all the kids stuck in those neighbourhoods who don't have skill/talent/natural abilities that can get them out of those horrible living conditions.

The Blind Side is a good movie with a good message, but perhaps pushes too hard at times. I enjoy inspirational films when they aren't trying so hard to get some tears from the audience. Sandra Bullock was great and deserved the Oscar, and she played the role great. The entire cast was good even if a lot of the characters had some major flaws and annoyed me. This film has a lot of flaws, but it succeeds in being a good movie nonetheless.

This film is about a young African American boy, Michael Oher, who gets abandoned from his drug-abused mother. Based upon a true story, Oher was left stranded and homeless until an American family took him in. With the help of that family, he got access to a roof over his head and a plate of food. From that point, that family changed his entire life. He got the chance to be enrolled in a private school which led him to playing on the high school football game. His new family helped him pursue the football career; getting a scholarship and being drafting in the NFL. Of course there were complications throughout the way such as being adopted into an American family, leaving the poverty community, meeting his grade requirements, and being drafted in the NFL. People doubted him because he was a random African American boy who came into the "rich" community. Towards the end of the film, there were investigators who began to question him and his new family and why they wanted him to become a football all-star at a particular college that the family had history with. In the end, Oher got what he wanted and made his decision without being pressured from others around him. This movie was more about the way people view two different communities with family, love, and support rather than actual sport itself.

I really enjoyed this movie! Sandra Bullock was a strong character and was able to execute it well throughout the entire film. She played the strong willed Leigh Ann Tuohy. Leigh Ann is married to Tim McGraw's character and they have two children. The Tuohy's live in a wealthy community and even own a multitude of Taco Bells. Michael Oher lives on the opposite side of the tracks. He grew up with a drug addict for a mother and has been living on friend's couches for years. Their world's collide and Michael eventually lives with the Tuohy's. They welcome him into their home despite the negative feedback from the community. Michael discovers his passion for football and gets numerous college football offers. The movie is a feel good movie and does a good job with keeping the plot moving with many tear jerking moments such as a crazy car accident with Michael and SJ the Tuohy's young son. Overall, "The Blind Side" is an excellent movie with a good true story and great actors. Thumbs up!

Not only is it heartwarming, but it is very engaging. From its acting to its message, this movie should be seen by all family's.

Skips Through Some Parts Far Too Quickly But It Has Some Poignant Bits That Totally Got Me...When Will People Realise True Satisfaction Occurs In Random Places. Not Bloody Consumerism & Running Down A Bargin At A Myer Or David Jones Stock Take Sales. Give & It Comes Back 1000 Times Stronger.

Therefore, I said Oscar is valuable no more.

Great story. The film could have proportioned its focus a little better though. There was too much football game shown and not enough emphasis on the psychological development of the main character.

091222: Kept waiting and waiting for this movie to take the predictable bad turn. You know, the one that always occurs before the happy ending. Well, it eventually happened but it was short and relatively painless. Nice. A positive message but one that seems to have lost its impact quickly. Still, a pleasant sitting. Loved the Ferdinand the Bull reference.
