Storyline Heading
The inspirational true story of Brian Banks, an All-American high school football star committed to USC who finds his life upended when he is wrongly convicted of a crime he didn't commit. Despite lack of evidence, Banks is railroaded through a broken justice system and sentenced to a decade of prison and probation. Years later, with the support of Justin Brooks and the California Innocence Project, Banks fights to reclaim his life and fulfill his dreams of playing in the NFL.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a fact-based inspirational drama. While the lead character is a football player, there is little football action in it. Fans of Aldis Hodge will enjoy while other recognizable faces such as Greg Kinnear and Sherri Shepherd have smaller supporting roles. There is language, brief sensuality, and adult subject matter, but most parents will find this safe viewing for pre-teens and up.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average Hodge consistently makes the movie compelling, even when it veers toward a safe, faith-based uplift. "Brian Banks” may indeed inspire audiences the way it intends—it just might take a little while for it to achieve that goal.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average The Banks case needed a movie that stings with urgency and purpose to counteract the baggage of its premise. Instead, it gets a pedestrian, by-the-numbers treatment that diminishes an impact that should feel as timely now as it was when it happened in 2002.
