    Sheri Linden The Hollywood Reporter

    This inspirational sports drama unfolds in such generic fashion that it feels contrived more often than it rings true. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    There's something disheartening about seeing real-life stories and their inevitable complexities put through the Hollywood sausage machine and transformed into bland parables about a privileged, wayward young bucks redeemed by wise, infinitely patient mentors and the self-abnegating spirit of team sports. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    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. show more

    Despite all the macho posturing, the corny story is just as sappy as anything on Lifetime. show more

    Village Voice

    Though director Ryan Little puts together a clean, professional package, at bottom this is a nearly-two-hour scrum of therapeutic direct encounters. show more

    Los Angeles Times

    The movie is well shot and edited, the rugby scenes are enjoyable (if likely puzzling to the uninitiated) and "Strong's" earnestness excuses at least some of its predictability. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    The performances are credible across the board, excessive sentimentality is largely avoided, and the sequences devoted to rough-and-tumble rugby match-ups are expertly shot and edited. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    A mawkish drama hobbled by a thoroughly unpleasant and uncharismatic lead performance. show more

    Noel Murray The A.V. Club

    Forever Strong is generic faith-and-redemption fare, devoid of nuance. show more

    The critics are high on crack! Espesally V.A. Musetto. This movie sereves one of the best stories of all time. Right next to Radio, The Blind Side, Rudy, Remeber the Titans, and The Rookie.

    This is a must see for everyone! I couldn't have been more impressed with the overall message. Great movie for the whole family.

    Ignore the critics--listen to the users. This is a powerful movie with a powerful message about life and about how the choices you make can have an everlasting effect on your attitude and therefore your outlook on life. A movie for the whole family and particulary for teenage boys on how to "listen right" and follow the wisdom each person has within them and not fall prey to the weaknesses of the ego. I give it five stars!

    As a family, we enjoyed this movie as my brother-in-law is the real trainer for the Highland Rugby team (and plays himself in the movie). He let us know every situation that happened in the movie has actually happened with the Highland Rugby team. It was inspiring for us.

    Took my wife my wife and step-son to see the movie. Lots of action and a great underlying theme I think the boy learned from. Good Movie.
