The Blind Side
Based on the extraordinary true story
Oversized African American Michael Oher, the teen from across the tracks and a broken home, has nowhere to sleep at age 16. Taken in by an affluent Memphis couple, Leigh Anne and Sean, Michael embarks on a remarkable rise to play for the NFL.
My big fat black pet.
So sentimental and manipulative that it hurts.
At least it had some nice cinematography.
I should've just watched the Lily Collins clips on Youtube
A stirring drama that explores the dangers of affirmative action, Christian values, obesity and being sassy
It's attempts at emotional manipulation are bordering on vulgar. True story? Sure, stereotypes are based on truth as well, but they're always shallow representations of reality. This film is nothing more than that, something even Bullock's slightly less mediocre performance than normal can save.
How can such a true story feel so fake?
Nothing more than yawn-inducing, uninspired, almost offensively manipulative drivel. The pacing is brutal and the attempts at tear-jerking drama are atrocious. stay away
Sweet, warm and touching, The Blind Side is one of those rare films that restores your faith in humanity's ability to care for one another. Boasting some delightful writing and strong performances, it is a beautiful display of the loving relationship between Michael Oher and Leigh Anne Tuohy.
Mother & son
Sure, Bullock did a good job, but the movie as a whole was not Oscar material. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it very much, but was a little underwhelmed.
Not a dry eye in the house.
Eigentlich schöne Geschichte, aber extrem vorhersehbar, voller Klischees und Schwarzweiß-Denken mit dem Holzhammer...
Entertaining, Buuuutttt...... C'MON MAN!?
I think it would be fitting to rate this movie using a cheer.... "OVER- RATED"
Rich white family helps poor naive black giant. Though not without charme, everything is way too sugarcoated. Even the bad guys are tame. Quinton Aaron is heartbreaking, Bullock is not bad. Don't know about the Oscar, though.
