Movie Reviews

Not the movie aired on TNT by the same title
M. Kruidhof | Los Angeles, CA USA | 03/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We had seen the movie that aired on TNT Febuary 7th, 2009 and really enjoyed it. Searching on Amazon, we found this same title in the "Movie" section on DVD. It is NOT the drama that was aired on TNT. Amazon does not present this product with enough detail to know that it is a documentary of Ben Carson. It is a great video but we still would like to get a copy of the TNT broadcast if they ever release one."
What "can" can do...

"In a word: INSPIRING. My six-old son watched this with me. When he saw what young Ben had to go through as a student from his peers and from society, he looked at me with tears in his eyes and said "And he STILL wanted to learn?" He got it. And anyone, young or old will to if you watch this great movie. Kimberly Elise's portrayal of Sonya Carson brought tears to my eyes, but I never felt sorry for her. Without a lot of explanation, you knew she had a hard life but she was no one's victim. She did what had to be done whether it be pushing her sons academically or checking herself into a hospital to help deal with her depression (when mental illness was still taboo). Ben's mother was the real hero of this story and her son's achievements are the result of her love, sacrifice and deep faith in believing her children could be anything, despite what label society tried to lay on them. This movie is a great excuse buster!

"If there were TEN stars this one would get it. I've never seen a movie with Mr Gooding in that he did not do an excellent job, but this surpasses them all. Yes-inspirational. For kids of ALL ages 5-105, finally!"
A must see (have)

"This is the most insperational moves I have seen. If you doubt the work of God in ones life this will clear up that doubt."
