Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
The Blind Side
Michael Oher is a homeless African-American teenager who is from a broken home. Mike is taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher's presence in the Touhys' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, Mike faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome - as both a football player and student. Mike works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle. Based on the true life story of NFL first-round draft pick Michael Oher.

Sweet in a number of ways, and being based on a true story makes it sweeter.

Even though I know nothing about football (the beginning of the movie is helpful), I enjoyed "The Blind Side”. It’s more a story about family and community than it is about the sport. I recommend it.

Take a little time to read Michael Oher's own story: "I Beat the Odds" - then re-respond here.

The classic nature vs nurture debate. Sometimes the progeny of an alcoholic crack addict can achieve greatness, especially with the help of a altruist caregiver; however, in the vast majority of cases, the story isn't so pretty.

Just another White Savior complex movie of a poor black child period.I am sick and tired of these sports movies that are really screwing up black boys in real life worldwide literally,to use their bodies,not their brains,to become WINNERS in real life financially period.This is just another extreme MK ULTRA BRAINWASH for black boys only to destroy their bodies,and brains for the DEEPLY RACIST NFL modern day slave owners to make $ to significantly shorten their lifespans period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This movie stars Sandra bullock, lily Collins, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron, Jae head, and Kathy bates. This movie is biography on the life of Michael Oher which includes being adopted by a very considerate family known as the toughies, playing football, and getting a fresh start at life. Michael Oher is now a professional football player who started from nothing and has made a name for him self. I like this movie personally a lot because of its acting and sometimes its sadder moments. It shows you how to be a good Christian and how to accept someone for there deference’s and sometimes there struggle the acting in this movie I thought was fantastic Sandra bullock as always did a great job on this movie in terms of acting and learning the role she had to play and so did Quinton Aaron who I think did a near perfect job at playing Michael Oher he met the physical size and facial expressions and just general sadness at the world . The storyline is all true which is a little sad that some people actually live the way Michael did in this movie but with a little hard work and sacrifice we can help people like this to do something with themselves and to get out of the conditions they live in. I think this movie deserves a four star grade not because it teaches lessons and I’m a football fan but because of the amazing acting story line and the fact that it’s a true story.
