Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Movie - More than a Chick Flick Sandra Bullock was great in this movie, in fact, the whole cast was stellar. But even more outstanding was the story itself. I applaud the real life family that look beyond their own insular life and made a difference in someone else's. Buy or rent. It's worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Movie I have seen alot of sport drama movies. I am a huge sport fan, so I will say, I do have a soft spot for them. I wasn't expecting this movie to be any different than the 100's I have seen before. In most cases I was right. The story was heartwarming, full of challenges and triumph for the main characters. Quinton Aaron did an awesome job with this character. His character, is one of my favourite characters I have seen in a while. Sandra Bullock gets alot of credit for her role in this movie. I thought she was good in it, but I didn't think her performance was anything extraordinary. Tim McGraw I though gave a great subtle performance. He plays the cool dad and husband perfectly. All the cast was great. Very entertaining movie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INSPIRING!! The blind side review An inspiring heartwarming movie that makes you really question what your doing in life and how you could possibly be doing something more, something more meaningful. It makes you wonder if your contributing your part within society and motivates one to think about the more important things in life, things that alter, bringing change and hope to something important. This is the story of a young boy who was born and raised in the ghetto with a mother hooked to a life of drugs and pain. Due to life's unfortunate circumstances he was forced to fend for his own when a life changing opportunity fell upon him. His size and athleticism were the main attributes that caught the eye of a well privileged school in suburbia, who seen a star in the making. Football was the name of the game and he was expected to steal the show. This point of the movie did bother me somewhat. The fact that because he was good at sports, useful to someone else, is the only reason he was worth an opportunity in life? Shouldn't we all have the opportunity and the right to an education, to something better? What if he wasn't interested in sports or football would they have then forced him back into his old existence? Well that wasn't the case considering he did enjoy football, because it was something he was good at. Due to his mother being “unfit and away” and the family he was currently staying with on the couch just could afford to have him there any longer. The boy was forced onto the streets with no where to go. As he wondered the streets a woman (Sandra Bullock ) who's son and daughter happened to go to the same school as the boy spotted him walking alone down the street. Once discovered the boy had no where to go, no questions asked she insisted he stay with them for the night. Well lets just say that the night ended up being two nights then 3 then well permanent. The family fell in love with the boy, and did whatever it took to help him succeed in school, sports and in life. It goes on into the struggles it took to get there and triumphs won. The assumptions made by others of the heartless act that a family had towards a boy, and true compassion that another human being could possibly have for a complete stranger. To give another person a step up and a chance in life. That is such a selfless act that is rare to occur these days. It seems to be too much to care or give to someone else anymore, to put others first and bring life altering change to someone else. Its something mainly seen in sorties like this one or in the movies. In my opinion its a beautiful film of strength, hope, love and compassion that gives you the feeling that you can do or accomplish anything. That life is to short to be vain and not make others happy. Its a movie that inspires me to become a better person and reassures me that I am in the right field of being a Child and Youth Worker. Also it goes to show that if more people could give back and do there part even if something small the world could actually be a much happier place. Its a worth while watch and I promise it will tug at your heart.
