Critic Reviews for The Grizzlies

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (4)

  • Though it's a familiar plot about kids learning discipline and teamwork through sports, The Grizzlies is brought to life through the specifics that make the characters and their sense of place -- and of displacement -- central to the story.

  • It's exactly the type of uplifting movie that could boost spirits during these bleak times.

    March 20, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Bracingly unsentimental and transcendently moving at the same time.

    January 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a fascinating puzzle: a film that is simultaneously an indictment of the toxic legacy of cultural imperialism and a weepie that employs the familiar tropes of Hollywood, one of the biggest machines of cultural imperialism on the planet.

  • Sensitive yet never mawkish... earns its heart, spirit and warmth.

    March 23, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Corny, cliched and ham-fisted, yet it still manages to get under your guard with its heartfelt message about reigniting the spirit of despondent youth...Breaks down your natural resistance to platitudes through the sheer force of sincerity.
