The Blind Side (2009): Mini Movie Review

A lot of things can get in the way of finding time to review films, including work, family and alcohol, but some movies still deserve a mention, so that’s where my Mini Movie Reviews come in. Each is less than 100 words long or your money back. That’s a promise people! Today it’s The Blind Side.

The Blind Side follows a boy called Michael Oher who is taken in by a Christian family and put on the road to success as an American football star. It’s the film that finally won Sandra Bullock an Oscar, but while she is mesmerising as Oher’s adopted mother, I think there were far more worthy performances that year. If you’re looking for an enjoyable Hollywood drama then The Blind Side will warm your heart, but don’t expect a hard hitting biographical account of what life is really like as an outsider growing up in suburban America. There’s just no conflict!
