I wouldn't call it award-winning, but it's a good Wonder Years-like tale about dignity and tolerance.
While Ed Harris does well as Mr. Simon, it's Alexander Walters, Daniel Yelsky and Chase Ellison as the main protagonists in the movie that carry it.
I think it's a bit plodding at points and the narration from Ellison's adult counterpart makes me think I'm watching ABC but overall it's a good film - one you wouldn't expect from "WWE Studios."
I understand where - or at least the perception why - they'd go for a movie that a neon TOLERANCE/ANTI-BULLYING~! sign... but I'm curious if Vince wants to expand from this where he goes next. I have a sinking feeling it will be closer to The Marine instead of this.
Finally - Orton needs to be a heel again; that's all I'll say from watching this movie.
Can I just say how utterly surprised I am that this is due out THIS YEAR? I heard there was as sequel in the works, but I had no idea that it was just around the corner. I think the trailer looks awesome and I really can't wait for the movie.
