Greater Reviews

March 5, 2018
Along with multiple music montages showing Brandon in training, the movie is cluttered with general churchy fluff.

Yes, Burlsworth was truly an angel among us, but Greater takes the audience through some heavy-handed hell.

As a basic football film Greater is perfectly adequate, but it could have truly lived up to its title with stronger convictions on its faith component.

A faith-based football weeper that fails on almost every level.
August 28, 2016
A movie that has some undeniable inspirational appeal, but also one that's so sluggishly told that the appeal is moderately blunted.
August 26, 2016
Moving, faith-based tale of football star's unexpected rise.

... not a movie for people who look to movies for something more than uplift or assurance, but that's all right.

Had the filmmakers not repeatedly returned to the "doubting Thomases" and instead just played the film out chronologically, it would have had more of an emotional impact. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Bullying, etc. - also Available)

While Brandon's own faith never wavers, the film cross-examines Christian pieties and even faith itself to a greater degree than any other faith-based film I can think of.
August 26, 2016
An inspirational sports drama that dares to ask difficult questions about faith.

It' s not a big biopic about a big football star. It's an inspirational film about a life well-lived that ended too soon.

Greater loses its way from the get-go; you can't root for an underdog who is sleepwalking through his own movie.

The best underdog sports movies since The Blind Side. It will make you stand up and cheer!

Just sweet enough and slick enough to appeal to pigskin fans and Christian family audiences.

The life and untimely death of Arkansas football player Brandon Burlsworth is turned into a one-note sermon in David Hunt's leaden biopic.
