Associated Press Blind Side's rose tinted view
Jeanne Calitz Wie gee om wie red wie? Sy nuwe kans is fantastiese nuus
Betsy Sharkey Bullock stars as smart, sassy spitfire
Pete Hammond Could be Bullock’s Erin Brokovich
Eleni Deacon Though Hancock tries to force some conflict in the film’s last third, The Blind Side is ultimately more about the merits of white paternalism than a child’s struggle to overcome his trying circumstances.
C. Fuchs Good in the first half and rote in the second, but still likely an overall crowd pleaser for many a viewer.
Tomatometer It might strike some viewers as a little too pat, but The Blind Side has the benefit of strong source material and a strong performance from Sandra Bullock.
