Critic Reviews

  1. A mawkish drama hobbled by a thoroughly unpleasant and uncharismatic lead performance.
  2. 12
    If the script serves any purpose at all, it is to allow jocks to show off their buff bodies. They're hot, but not worth 12 bucks at the box office.

    Weathering Our Storms
    The 2008 film, “Forever Strong,” directed by Ryan Little teaches us multiple life lessons and morals and truly helps us take a step back and look at our life from a different perspective. Often times in life, we are faced with challenges. Some are more difficult than others and we have to make a decision to confront them or let them knock us down and fill us with despair. This movie teaches us that there is nothing too difficult or too overbearing to overcome, even if it’s drugs or alcohol, which is one of the most common challenges people, especially teens, are facing today. I hope that what you are about to read will help you consider how you can better change your life for the better. Too many people are setting for drugs and alcohol instead of realizing their true potential in life and the things that really matter. I truly believe that the message Little wanted to deliver to all of us is that having the courage to have humility, love, loyalty, and the desire to put the lives of others first, can ultimately change each one of us for the better and we can eventually see the bigger picture in life and find great joy. By truly applying the lessons and morals found in this film, lives can be changed forever.

    The story is predictably corny and the main character has a bad attitude for most of the movie. It kind of makes the film annoying.

    Absolutely loved the movie. Wish there was a coach in the school system here like Larry Gelwix. Maybe more kids would turn their livesAbsolutely loved the movie. Wish there was a coach in the school system here like Larry Gelwix. Maybe more kids would turn their lives around. I hit the wiki's while I was watching this movie and was impressed by all I read. The movie was made well and the acting was strong by all those in it. True it would have been nice to have had a little more of the history of Highland written into the script but none the less it was still done well. I would watch it again more then once. Well done.
