Hard to dislike, but not particularly memorable either

There's no doubt this is a feel good story showing the trials and tribulations of two people who had to endure lots to keep both their dreams and relationship alive. It's slow paced which is to be expected for what it's aiming to achieve but I didn't find there was much to differentiate it from other films that use a similar framework.

I thought Anna Paquin was quite good, but wasn't totally sold on Zachary Levi's performance. The latter half of the film which focuses on the culmination of all the two went through with Kurt succeeding in the NFL is quite rewarding to watch and well done.

Perhaps my rating is a bit harsh, because it is fine, just not special for me.

? A Shinning Light in an Often-Cynical World ?

Get the tissues - American Underdog will make even the most stone face man let go... Best sports themed feel-good movie I've EVER seen (and I see a LOT of movies)! Second only to CODA this year in the feel good category at large, which might very well be the best of all time. It was a memorable year for feeling good watching movies ?.

Better than anticipated, and glad I bought American Underdog (only way to see it right now other than in Theaters). Worth it!

My "Favorite Film of 2021" [EDIT: Replaced later by 'CODA' which I saw after this film]

Anyone who reads my reviews knows I don't give out 10s easily. Like Kurt Warner, this film defies the "usual" and earns my 10 without reservation.

Unique plot.

Powerful, this is just solid. A very inspirational story that will make you tear up....a story that is so rare and unique in football. Perfectly performed by great actors. Highly recommend this for the sport fans.
