6.21 h 47 min2010PG-13
This inspirational tale of a young man's dream to reunite his family through amateur wrestling is as triumphant as it is profoundly touching. John Cena is Mike Chetley, a former high school and collegiate champion estranged from his family. Things change when his awkward, undersized, younger brother Cal comes back into his life with a plan to unify Mike and their widowed mother.

Feel good movie
Verified purchase
Have to be honest. John Cena's acting ability was a little limited but overall this is a good movie. Patricia Clarkson was just amazing. Excellent actor. If you want to watch a movie that will keep you engrossed for a few hours, this is it. The story is not complicated and a little formulaic but overall it works. I highly recommend watching.

Excellent movie. I've watched it several times

Excellent movie. I've watched it several times. Recently I've been researching body language and this video shows that the two brothers exhibit certain body language, all brothers do, whether it's approval, disapproval, pride, incentive to please, inspiration etc.; even mom exhibits certain body language from a female point of view. The movie also demonstrates family dynamics, ie., mother losing her husband and two sons losing their father, an older estranged brother, etc.

watchable heartfelt film
Verified purchase
I was surprised with this subtle, but strong and loving film. I will watch any film with patricia Clarkson. I was also surprised by the performance of john cena. he was much more believable here then on the ring. he was a gentle giant in his role. all the other actors, especially devon graye were excellent and danny glover, as the beaver, too.

Great value
Verified purchase
if you are a fan of Cenas, he delivers his epic slogan "never give up" in a tale of a family torn apart by loss. A story where one doesn't underestimate oneself or those around you. This movie has a few great messages and a great family film. (Mild language and some teenage facts and lessons growing up-at times some lessons are the long road) worth every penny and the great value is the content let alone the price.

We really enjoyed this movie
Verified purchase
We really enjoyed this movie. It touched on a number of important issues. The main character, a young boy, Cal, exhibited great determination against difficult obstacles. He didn't quit. He trained hard. He has very mature goals for a youth in that his primary goal was to unite his broken family. All the acting was well done. Nothing inappropriate. The movie is worth watching.

John Cena
Verified purchase
I have no idea what happen to this movie.
Been a wrestling fan for decades but this
little piece missed its mark. Never been a
John Cena fan but I wanted to give him the
benefit-of-a-doubt. I love coming of age
wrestling movies. I found this one difficult
to digest. My past wrestling experience had
more excitement when I was in the third grade.
