This is how you make movies. All the emotions!
nepats5 - Fantastic
Fantastic movie, great story, great acting
Aqua62 - Great Movie
In a sea of crummy movies that waste the time it takes to turn them off, this one is why I keep coming back for more. Every now and then - a really good tale that needs to be told. So good.
Fallenavalle - Great message, terrible movie.
Flannery's love for the sport is clearly so strong and deep, and its great that he wanted to make this film. But as good as he is at BJJ, that's how bad he is at screenwriting. The plot and dialogue are painfully, often laughably bad. There's a lot of good reviews here, and with good reason. This movie has heart, and fans of BJJ will love the message. But objectively, this movie is badly written, badly acted, and filmed one cut above a student film. That said: it didn't feel like wasted time.
I eat books - Gracie student reviews
Every review here is by Gracie BJJ students. This movie is so very bad. Imagine high schoool wrestling wit bad acting.
Jer1890717 - Well done
Great movie.. finally.
JPalmquist - Awesome movie!
SPF is great and BJJ is a truly a life changer.
Amgine17 - A movie you wouldn’t wanna miss
I’ve seen so many movies in my life. This is one of those that comes once a year. Five stars!!!
Tkddemon😈 - Rent or buy it’s a good flick
As martial art practitioner this was a real treat to watch . It focuses on the art of BJJ , the ups and downs of being a fighter ,and dealing with outside life issues . Also showing the strengths and weaknesses of BJJ in a fight setting. The main character could pass off as real person and their story . Awesome work Mr Flanery 😎.
USNG1 - Fantastic film
1st first film I’ve seen in years that spoke to the heart.
143 ;-) - Awesome!
I loved it. I should have purchased it instead of renting.
Steffi 6810 - Inspiring & authentic martial arts movie with a lot of heart
I always adored Sean Patrick Flanery’s great ability of GOOD storytelling & to be able to touch people’s hearts.
BORN A CHAMPION is Sean’s love letter to Jiu Jitsu, he shows the heart & honesty of being a martial artist: “We never start a fight, we just finish them.”
Even if you’re not in martial arts you will love & enjoy this movie because it’s about everything that is important in life.
Love, family, fatherhood, faith, legacy, integrity, confidence, drive & commitment.
There are so many things you can empathize. Such a deep true love or that wonderful friendship with Taco. What it means being a father.
You can feel the passion Sean put in this project as a person and as a martial artist.
Solid and amazing performances that don’t feel like acting. Because it’s something that comes from Sean’s heart & soul, it felt so real.
It’s the first movie Sean Patrick Flanery stars in where he wrote the story/screenplay & executive produced it.
It’s inspiring, moving, I’m going through all the emotions with Mickey Kelley.
He made me smile and he made me cry. More than once.
Sean is a legit 3rd degree bjj black belt himself, he owns an academy where he trains & teaches kids & adults.
So everything you see in this movie is real, he hired elite martial artists and was the stunt coordinator too.
The fight scenes are violent & you’re rooting for Mickey.
BORN A CHAMPION shows how to deal with adversity, it’s a beautiful love story, there are heartwarming scenes with his own kids. (Watch the end credits!!!!)
I love the structure of this movie, how it is built from the beginning to the end. (no spoilers)
I love BORN A CHAMPION wholeheartedly, I haven’t seen a movie in a very long time that touched me that much and made me think about a lot, to learn from.
Because we all need perspective, motivation, especially now, we have to face adversity, to speak with Sean’s words: “No one becomes great without adversity.”
If you want to read more from Sean, check out his book Jane Two and his blog Shine Until Tomorrow. You will recognize some quotes from this movie. Sean is a huge source of inspiration and motivation.
So I highly recommend watching. A movie you can watch multiple times.
MaEdelina - Pleasantly Surprised!!!
This movie really surprised me, I honestly did not not think the story was going to be so good. It was funny, sweet, and uplifting. Highly recommend it!
ScubaOfSteve - Awesome
Great story focusing on the BJJ aspect of MMA and the life of a fighter. No regrets in my purchase. I will be watching it again.
Ltpicklegre - Great Movie
This movie was a great watch.
mareklisek - Excellent movie
It’s just one of those movies that is one you watch and remember, worth every $
ellsworth24 - Worth watching
It was definitely worth watching. The authenticity in the JJ made the fighting realistic. Good story line.
jonniebags - Not so common passion
What a film! So typical for people to go through life without listening to the inner you... understand what you were made to do, and doing it at any cost. Great story, awesome acting, value driven.
Lovekim9 - It a good store
It have love and life and action,I even wanted to watch the second time 👍
23602 - OMG
This movie was VERY surprising. It made me smile, made me mad, made me laugh and made me shed a tear. The grappling was spot on. Story line wasn’t cheesy.... I will watch this a few more times and have family and friends watch it with me.
mcgintyman - Surprisingly good and not what you think
I rented this expecting lots of fighting and martial arts. And there is some of that. But much of the movie is devoted to telling the fascinating life story of a really good guy who has to overcome struggles with the help of a loving friend. I know that doesn't sound necessarily good, but this film is much much more than just a martial arts flick. I really enjoyed and I hate to admit I shed tears more than once.
Supe Cookie - Our generation’s Rocky
One of the best films of 2021
ghostb72 - A way of life and a story to tell.
