The Blindside - 6.5/10
Directed by John Lee hancock
Cast - Sandra Bullock,Tim Mcgraw,Quinton Aaron

Plot Summary

Review
I've always enjoyed sports movies,be it if its a serious one(Any Given Sunday),a comedy(The Replacements) or one of those
" triumphant human spirit" kinda movie.And Blindside turns out to be a "based on a true story" kinda movie.Although,I'm not a particularly a big fan of Sandra Bullock's movies.To my surprise,Blindside turned to be a pleasant experience indeed.Bullock's acting is pretty good and overall it was a touching movie indeed.
First off,the cast for this movie is pretty good.Kathy Bates as the tutor and the 2 Tuohy kids acted well.I felt that everyone did a decent job except Tim Mcgraw.I'm pretty sure there are decent actors out there who can play a rich red neck instead of a country singer.
The chemistry between Quinton Aaron's character and Sandra Bullock's character was just simply moving and fantastic.There are some emotional scenes and the pace for this movie was good.
Cinematography and editing were done well.John Lee Hancock directed this well,I might add.
Overall,Blindside is a good movie and I would definitely recommend you to watch this movie with your loved ones on a weekend.

Quotes
Leigh Anne Touhy: Michael, I want you to have a good time but if you get a girl pregnant out of wedlock, I will crawl into the car, drive up to Oxford and cut off your penis.
S.J. Tuohy: She's not kidding.
Leigh Anne Touhy: I don't want to name names but one of the coaches took him to a titty bar. Gave him nightmares.
Sean Tuohy: Who would've thought we'd have a black son before we met a Democrat?
