The Blind Side [2009]

The Blind Side is a Biography | Drama | Family | Sport movie that was released in November 2009. A story of an orphaned guy with no one understood him, sought refuge in school. Being meek and inferior to others made him lonely and with huge physique scares bullies as well as friends away. However, this hinder him not to be recognized by a schoolmate of him that happened to have a mother that gave him a chance to change. Being adopted in a family who loved American Football well, he began motivated to be a sport star.

Sandra played a really nice role here that fits her characteristics. The little brother did well of a supporting actor. Big Mike did good too, but needs more convincing.

Anyway, what this movie failed is that most of the scenes were of the positive side of the story and less with the other side. Like, how he was adopting to the school and otherwise. How the family accepted him was not well elaborated. Maybe to shorten the film to the ideal viewing time. But i admired the flawlessness of the kindhearted the family had, where only a few could do that, even rare in the level from their social status.

Sometimes, it's nice to have a Big Brother - not the TV reality show. Came to think of it when both of you play American Football, he's the line backer then you'll be the running back, here comes the block, here comes the run, and a touchdown!!! LOL..

The movie has been nominated and won several awards like Academy Awards, Black Reel Awards, Golden Globes, MTV Movie Awards, and many more. This is a great movie and is highly recommended for this movie genre. I'll have an 8/10 rating for the film.
