Good points: 1) Movie provides an inside look at Bronco riding and the young men who love it. We see the tremendous heart and passion that riders have for their sport--even in the face of debilitating injuries suffered. 2) There is a niceGood points: 1) Movie provides an inside look at Bronco riding and the young men who love it. We see the tremendous heart and passion that riders have for their sport--even in the face of debilitating injuries suffered. 2) There is a nice family story here. Bad points: 1) the acting is a bit better than in Clint Eastwood's recent film, "The 15:17 to Paris" about the foiled terrorist attack, but both movies suffer from so so acting due to using the real people who went through the life situation. 2)the movies drags at times with slow pacing; 3) I did not experience the wrenching gut punch of emotion described by the reviewers--perhaps my expectations were too high. The movie was just okay for me; not sure what all the buzz is about. Expand

A slow, quiet, albeit honest journey of a young man's struggle to make it back to the rodeo scene after his accident.

Many films take this path of bordering reality television recently: walking cameras, breathy close-ups. I didn't think it was as introspective as it postures to be. It's hard to make an impact when a story barely raises it's pulse. Expand

This celebration of reckless uber-macho behavior as something noble to which the inner cowboys in all men should aspire is laden with heavy-handed, patently obvious metaphor that even the most casual moviegoer can see coming long before it appears on the screen. Other than some impressive cinematography and a fine lead performance by Brady Jandreau, it's hard to understand why this otherwise-mediocre offering has garnered so much attention and so many accolades. Maybe my lack of interest in the Western genre is unduly coloring my opinion here, but, with a narrative that's easy to figure out and a litany of increasingly archaic ideals that are questionable at best, it's difficult to say anything positive or redeeming about this highly overrated release.
