Review of The Blindside

This is one of the better sports films I’ve seen in a while. The last football related film I saw was Invincible with Mark Wahlberg. That story was also based on a true story, but the true story aspect was lame. The main character’s main claim to fame was that he played a couple of games on special teams. The climax of the film was when the main character scores a touchtown on a fumble recovery after a kickoff. The filmmakers glossed over the fact that the resulting touchdown was nullified because he had stepped out of bounds.
