Not sure why there's some haters out there.. this is a lovey film. It pushes all the right character / story buttons. The acting is good, it's nice to see the familiar faces and some new ones.

Very robotic script, but a good story
The previews honestly played this out to be like it would be a big hit, but it fell short. The script is very robotic as if it were a high school musical, but without the music. I understand the character has autism, however, the rest of the script is simple, one or two worded lines, and honestly I was struggling to stay awake.
It's a good story because it's true, but in a few weeks, I'll probably forget I even saw this movie, not to mention wanting to rewatch it at a later point in time.
The main point of this film is the thousands--or millions--
. . . of brains that could be saved from multiple concussions, decay and ultimate ruin if all of America's football players quit the grid iron cold turkey, as Georgia's all-time leading winner coach does here, and take up marathon running instead. TYSON'S RUN documents how all the latter sport requires is a pair of sneakers and a few inspirational verses from the Good Book to rise from couch potato to world champ in a month or two. Some viewers may quibble that picturing a jogger tooling along at eight-minute mile pace at best while claiming that he's actually running sub-four minute miles at the very end of his teenage marathon debut is implausible, but just think back to football for a moment: If Green Bay's quarterback dude sees one wide receiver candidate run a four second something 40 at the all-important Combine, and a second potential Packer end can quote the Holy Scriptures and clock in with an eight-second plus 40, Rogers will say "Draft the church goer" every time.
