Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Director John Lee Hancock's only aiming for a crowd pleaser, and by not challenging the established playbook for inspirational sports dramas, he's no doubt got one.

- Bob Mondello, NPR, Thursday, November 19, 2009

Fresh: The Blind Side is a big budget, well crafted and finely honed... movie of the week.

- Giles Hardie, smh.com.au, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: Except for a few crude exchanges,The Blind Side is almost as squeaky-clean as an old Disney movie. Unfortunately, it can also be just as cute and condescending.

Based on a true story a homeless African American teenager from a broken family is adopted by a white American family. They change each others lives. Great cast and story. A bit of a tear jerker.

If you like drama about true life, family movies, a good story and depth, with actors that believe in their role and the movie they make then you will enjoy this for a Sunday break or evening movie. If you're like myself, looking for the action of a good story, perhaps a typical hollywood drama, with no real realism and lots of NFL footage then its the wrong film. If you just want the low down on the player, and I did not realise this was a true life story till the very end, then heres the wiki you probably are looking for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Oher

One of the worst best picture nominees in Oscar history.I couldnt endure it more than 20 minutes.Judging by that,i must say Sandra Bullock won an Oscar which belonged to Meryl Streep for her great performance in Julie and Julia.In my opinion no matter how many times,Streep has already won,she deserved to win again
