More Info:
  • Elias Savada

    This may be Bullock's best performance. Ever.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    What makes The Blind Side a Thanksgiving treat is director Hancock's subtle touch and admirable refusal to yield to sports movie clichés, something he did previously with "The Rookie" and "Remember the Titans."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Grounded in the direct, disarming truth of their experience, the movie has a straightforward lack of cheap sentiment that saves it from being either too maudlin or saccharine-sweet.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    In a head-to-head comparison, one would be hard-pressed not to declare that "Precious" is the better film - it makes fewer compromises and doesn't shy from showing the true ugliness only hinted at in this movie, but The Blind Side is more accessible. It's easier to digest. In the end, both films tell stories of triumph over adversity - a category of drama that uplifts while offering a dollop of social commentary.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Without restraint or subtlety, but with a lot of heart and energy, this movie tells a real-life tall tale.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    One of the reasons it's so effective is because it's based on a real-life, odds-defying story: that of mountainous Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher (played by Quinton Aaron).

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Best performance, minute for minute, comes from Adriane Lenox, whose cameo as Michael's drug-addled mother is the film's standout.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Bullock is an irrepressible hoot in writer-director John Lee Hancock's otherwise thoroughly conventional take on Michael Lewis' fact-based book "The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game."

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Wisely, Hancock has given the film as much humor as heart.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    Uplifting and entertaining feel-good, fact-based sports drama.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    The story is inspiring and involves sports, but to call it an inspirational sports story would be wrong; its real center is Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock in a fine performance), the strong-willed woman whose love and generosity helped turn a mute, hopeless boy with no social or academic skills into a functioning young man with a promising future.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    It’s not an altogether convincing portrait, but it is an entertaining, even moving one, and the forcefulness of Bullock's presence goes a long way in pulling the film back from the brink of cuddliness.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    An engaging if transparent tearjerker of the first water.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Has strong performances and stirring football scenes.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Bullock’s levelheaded acting frequently saves the movie from emotional garishness.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Michael as a character is defined almost solely by his helplessness and gratitude. He's as lovable as a lost puppy, but a more perceptive movie than The Blind Side would have let us see him from another angle.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    Bullock delivers a towering performance that grabs the movie and the Oscar race by the scruff of the neck. You will be moved, but at the price of any nuance or complexity.

    Empire Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    For all The Blind Side's flaws, it's impossible not to get caught up in Michael Oher's life.

    Slate Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    Unlike the tale told in "Precious", however, The Blind Side's story is contrived, storybook sweet, credulity-straining and ... um, true.

    NPR Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Veers perilously close to the concept of poverty tourism.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Never dull, but it's rarely more than gently entertaining.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    A football story that deserves a penalty flag every other play for piling on the sentiment.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    It's fair to say that Bullock's appealing portrait of a strong-willed Tennessee belle ranks among the best work of her career. It's just too bad the movie around her comes up short.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A feel-good movie that never stops feeling good. The film is based on a true story (it was adapted from a nonfiction best-seller by Michael Lewis), but you never feel that Hancock has honestly captured what's true about it.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The film, not unsurprisingly for a holiday- (and football-) season release from a major Hollywood studio, plays this story straight down the middle, shedding nuance and complication in favor of maximum uplift.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    A facile, feel-good fable that substitutes cliché for reality at nearly every turn.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Sports movies have a long, troubled history of well-meaning white paternalism, with poor black athletes finding success through white charity. But The Blind Side, based on Michael Lewis’ non-fiction book, finds a new low.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Fear

    It’s just blinkered middle-class pandering at its most shameless.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Melissa Anderson

    Blind Side the movie peddles the most insidious kind of racism, one in which whiteys are virtuous saviors, coming to the rescue of African-Americans who become superfluous in narratives that are supposed to be about them.
