Great biopic, but it had its flaws.

The writing was a little bland with its flat, formulaic-style story-telling, and the pacing too slow, that the normally decent 99 min runtime felt much longer. Directing was ok, but I expected more from Tom Shadyac. I guess a long hiatus does flaw some of the skills. The soundtrack wasn't anything special, and the score felt out of place and cheap in some scenes.

Kinnear, Liburd and Roquemore's performances were the only stand-outs imo, the rest of the cast was adequate, but I wasn't too impressed with Hodge's performance, unless of course his bland demeanor was portraying the real Brian Banks. During the ending credits, I will say how uncanny the resemblance was between most of the actors and the people they were portraying.

Nevertheless, it was a great biopic on a serious issue with some tear-jerking moments in the end. It certainly isn't a 9 or 10/10, so ignore those fake reviews the producers felt they needed. It is a solid 7-8/10 film, but gets only my 7 for annoying me with the obviously phony reviews. Would I see it again? Nope. Would I recommend it? Of course.

Compelling and entertaining

The movie was good. Well acted and well directed. The casting was right on. The actress who played the bad girl was excellent as well as the actress who played her mother. The film moved right along telling a wonderful story in an engaging manner.

Wow! Eyes Wide Open

Just saw the latest superhero movie tonight. Although it was not advertised as one. I am talking the new movie Brian Banks. Don't get me wrong-I enjoy superhero movies and even attended Comic Con when I used to be able to afford it. Tonight, was a great reminder that we are the true superhero's with comics mimicking how sensational we can be as humans when we rise above injustice. Brian Banks is played outstandingly by actor Aldis Hodge who is amazingly convincing as Banks. Actress Sherri Shepard plays the role as Banks mother, who is everything one could want as a loving and protective mother. Greg Kinnear as the attorney Justin Brooks provides the right touch of truth about our judicial system, while exuding gut-wrenching care to this heartfelt classic hopeful. This movie is as compelling as The Blind Side-another based on true events story. Except you get blind-sided in a different way. As uncomfortable as this movie makes you feel, due to its disgusting unfairness faced by Brian Banks. You can't help but feel sorrow for what must be missing inside someone propelled to tell such sickening lies on the innocent-played perfectly by actress Xosha Roquemore as the accuser Kennisha Rice. This movie made me mad, cry and grateful for the freedom and life that I have. Test yourself, see how feel when you come out. All I can say is Wow, my eyes are now wide open.
