WILL HAVE YOU CHEERING AND ENJOYING TWO PERFORMANCES WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION. TWO WOMEN FIGHTING THE "SYSTEM" TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION!

Viola Davis. Robbed of last year's Academy Award for best actress, is reason enough to see this highly manipulative film about two women who fight the entrenched bureaucracy of the teachers union in Baltimore. The film is fraught with fallacies, and living in a city where the teachers went on strike for a week and a half this past September, the wounds, no longer oozing, have yet to scar. Nevertheless, it was entertaining, heartwarming predictability... "Won't Back Down" is melodramatic, at times erroneous, sensational, pushing the gamut of emotional buttons; in this instance, buttons that did mind the pressure... THREE STARS!!! ***For full review please visit peneflix(dot)com!!!

Too one sided

This was the type of Movie when you wanted to stand up and cheer at the end. Although I loved the outcome it was too one sided and portrayed Unions in a bad light. Unions are the backbone of our Country and without them our wages would be barely over minimum. I think tenure needs to be revised to make teachers more accountable and what this movie did was bring a lot of that to the forefront.
