Overview

The Blind Side

Taken in by a well-to-do family and offered a second chance at life, a homeless teen grows to become the star athlete projected to be the first pick at the NFL draft in this sports-themed comedy drama inspired by author Michael Lewis' best-seller The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game. Michael Oher was living on the streets when he was welcomed into the home of a conservative suburban family, but over time he matured into a talented athlete. As the NFL draft approaches, fans and sports radio personalities alike speculate that Oher will be the hottest pick of the year. Sandra Bullock stars in a film written and directed by John Lee Hancock (The Rookie, The Alamo).

I finally saw this movie, after friends & family kept telling me to see it, and I thought it was excellent! A very touching, heart warming true story about a real life football player! I admit that I am not much into professional football, though I do like some college ball, but none the less, this is a great, inspirational show to be enjoyed by all. Just be wary with your kids though, because there are a couple of adult situations and a bit of violence & such in one spot. Other than that, I highly recommend everyone see this movie.

The Blind Side tells the real-life story of a hulking, homeless African-American teenager who is taken in by a well-to-do southern white family. At first glance, you'd think that Michael Oher is the clear winner in the deal - with the Touhy family's help, he goes from life on the streets to an eventual starring role on the football field. But this isn't a one-sided arrangement. With Big Mike's help, the Touhys learn to see beyond their upper-class world and also come to understand the importance of family. Sandra Bulloch shines in the role of Leigh Anne, the headstrong yet soft-hearted matriarch who feels compassion for the boy and brings him into her home. Quinton Aaron plays Michael, the gentle giant who's finally able to reach his potential. The talented cast also features country music legend Tim McGraw and Kathy Bates.

Micheal Oher (Quinton Aaron) was a large black kid who grew up in the Memphis projects living on people's couches because his crack addicted mom was unfit to take care of him. One day, Tony Hamilton (Omar J Dorsey), trying to enroll his kid into Wingate Christian School, also gets Micheal enrolled in the school. Moving from place to place to find shelter, Michael finally comes across Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy (Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw) who invite him to stay at their house, and eventually invite him to be a part of their family. The story of Micheal Oher is really a quite amazing one. Oher traveled from place to place never really having a place to stay, until he was invited by the Tuohy's to stay with them. Having never remained in a school for more than a year, and failing miserably, the Tuohy's helped him raise his grades to be able to play football (and basketball) in school. Eventually this lead to him being one of the most sought after high school players for college recruiters. Just before the 2009 NFL season he became a first round draft pick for the Baltimore Ravens and became the 2009 Rookie of the Year. With such an amazing story of "rags to riches" how does Oher's story translate to film? Very well. One thing that surprised me, and I found refreshing was the fact that a such an openly Christian family was actually treated respectfully and without ridicule. I say this because the movie itself actually has a genuine spirit to it, it doesn't feel like a by the numbers inspirational sports movie. The writing does a great job keeping many of the true things that happened in real life in the movie, moving things around as is typically necessary for screen stories, without making things feel forced. As sports movies go, this movie feels fresher than many that have come in recent years. This, of course, is the movie that not only earned Sandra Bullock her first Oscar nomination, but her first Oscar win as well and for good reason. Playing a character based on a real person is already a daunting task, but for an actress known most for playing America's sweetheart type roles, playing a strong willed genuinely philanthropic Christian woman is definitely not easy, but Bullock equips herself well and steals the movie. And Quinton Aaron as Michael Oher does a fantastic job playing Oher as a person who is shy, quiet, and even somewhat cynical, but doesn't allow his cynicism to define him. Throughout the film we watch these layers removed as he becomes more ingrained in the Tuohy household. My biggest problem with the movie is some of the changes they make to this already fantastic true story. Michael Oher already knew how to play football before being placed on the team at Briarcrest (the real school that he attended while in the Tuohy home). Making it seem as though he didn't, to me, is an insult to the true character this film is trying to portray. On top of that the story, as portrayed in the film, is a little too good to be true. The lack of an inner struggle for the main character, as well as the lack of an outer struggle throughout most of the movie drags it down a few notches. All in all, I think it was a really good movie, and while it might not be an Oscar worthy movie on the best picture front, its definitely one of the better inspirational sports movies to come out in recent memory. Check it out for the performances, the heart warming story, and the inspiration that you will derive from it. 3.5/5

The Blind Side, with Sandra Bullock, this was a great movie. It was very close to the original book of the same title by Michael Lewis. The protagonist, Michael, (also called "Big Mike") was well developed as well as the characters of the members of the Touhy family. Leigh Ann was especially developed and believable as the Southern "go-getter," and "tough" yet loving mother. Truly this was a DVD worth watching, the realism just keeps your attention. S.J.'s character adds some laughter to this drama that helps "lighten-up" the mood. Even though there are moments of violence, drug use, and sexually suggestive behavior this DVD is still a great investment.

The plot is simple, but powerful. I am sure that the true story has been glossed over, but the story is still incredible. Full disclaimer: I am a Sandra Bullock fan, but even at that this is a great performance. Quinton Aaron also did a good job. I thought that one of the most powerful aspects of the story was how social economic status was the conflict within the plot--not race. My family really loved the movie.

We could not wait to receive this video! It has been watched at least four times by the entire family since we received it and each time, there isn't a dry eye. A true story, it will dig deep into your soul and unlock feelings and emotions you never realized you had. The characters are real, the performances unbelievable and the actual people have commented on how special this production is for them. A must see for every sports fan, high school parent, teacher or administrator. We love "Blind Side" and it will become a treasured video in our collection.

THIS WAS A GOOD MOVIE..........WOULD HAVE BEEN AN EVEN BETTER FAMILY MOVIE IF THEY WOULD HAVE LEFT OUT A COUPLE OF SCENES THAT REALLY WERE NOT NECESSARY.......WHAT THEY DO FOR RATINGS, TAKES AWAY FROM A GOOD MOVIE. I COULD NOT HELP WONDERING THOUGH, IF AS IT WAS TOLD IS ACTUALLY HOW IT REALLY HAPPENED......AGAIN....EMBELLISHMENT FOR THE SHOW!!

I love this movie! It's so touching and heatwarming. It's great for the whole family, although if you have small children it does have a couple of curse words that they could have left out, but otherwise wonderful

The Blind Side is a touching movie that everyone should see. It is a true example of what it is to trust your instincts, take a chance, and make a difference in someones life. Sandra Bullock made an exceptional performance; totally different than her previous movies. Sandra has a real talant for playing the role of a serious, no nonsense character. But, the real star of the movie was Quinton Aaron. He performed a real mixture of emotions, from hurt and in need to gifted yet humble. Most of all, he shows that people in poverty are good people, wanting a chance to do more, worthy of our trust, and capable of much more than lifes circumstances present them to be.

This was one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. Sandra Bullock definitely earned her Oscar for he betrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy. The movie had all the elements of a great movie. It made you sad, happy as well as bringing tears to your eye through out the film. I think everyone should give it a chance whether you are a football fan or not because it's just so much more than a kid from the wrong side of the track making it big. I highly recommend this movie. Personally I can't wait to watch it again.
