Won't Back Down

This movie has all the components of an award winning movie. I believe this is a family movie that everyone should see. Everything from the acting, directing, writing, etc was excellent. It was real with real feelings and emotions. It really is a reality check for those of us who are concerned about our young people. The characters in the movie are so intense and convincing they brought their reality to me. They made me laugh and cry. But the most important lesson to us all is that one person can make a difference! I would recommend this movie to everyone. It was great!

Wonderful story idea and terrible, boring, lifeless followthrough. This movie drags on and on and is a perfect example of the previews being the ONLY good scenes in the movie. DO NOT waste your money even when it is out on Pay Per View.

Moderately Entertaining...Characters Not Well Developed.

OK, it's a play after all. So it's fair to suppose the talent's trying to pull off the most realistic portrayal of their characters possible. I get that. It just doesn't work here, due to miscasting and a host of other rookie mistakes. And there's some mighty good talent in this film. It's just too bad a couple were badly matched to their roles, and none were given much to work with in the way of dialog or plot development--the fault of the writers. There's no emotional investment here either for the audience or the cast. Everyone on screen seems like a talking mannequin, more or less, just going through the motions. While this isn't a terrible movie, it's just not all that good. It's worth a matinee ticket at best, or wait for the DVD or stream. You'll be glad you did.

Well Worth Seeing

My wife and I went to see Won't Back Down last night, and we were not disappointed. We both thoroughly enjoyed the story of triumph by a mother who wanted the best for her daughter. We also were impressed by the fact that there was very little profanity in the movie. We both highly recommend Won't Back Down.

Powerful message

Defending the children and overcomming the obstacles that confront students and teachers. The children don't have a voice to fight the system....think about it....Great acting and message. who has the guts to fight for the children? The children are the ones who should go on strike, not the unions....
