Bullock Surprises All
- The Blind Side review by CP Customer
The prospect of a Bullock film would result in a groan however the Blind Side is a surprise, almost a revelation in parts with moments of tension, emotion and humour. Traditionally films based around American Football are often rags to riches tales or a team of underdogs performing miracles, with the exception of Any Given Sunday. The Blind Side possesses these elements but the spotlight fails on Sandra Bullock’s character (Leigh Anne Tuohy), as it is through her eyes we see the poverty and depression only a few blocks away from her middleclass lifestyle. The end is never in doubt and you do see the real-life characters briefly in a fitting ending. Overall the Blind Side is a decent enough film, one that will entertain and surprise. Bullock has shown here that there is talent and would do well to exploit it more in future projects.
