      Jitendradas L First of all, the mother never aged. They needed a more skillful approach to the makeup in the film. The character development was weak. They didn't show his struggle to learn. They just pointed at it. I would have loved to have seen his romance and his struggle. It was a missed opportunity in many ways. Forgettable. Watch a different movie. I always aim for five stars and this movie falls short at 3. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/11/24 Full Review Navi H Great story but the movie is incredibly boring and the script is atrocious. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/02/23 Full Review John B I enjoyed this one and the story that it told us about the great surgeon Ben Carson and how he came to be from early life growing up with his mother guiding the way. Good cast with Cuba Gooding as Ben to bring the story to life was great also and added to enjoyment of the story. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/03/23 Full Review s r An important story that was never fully recognized because of politics. It's a shame, because it was entertaining and fascinating despite its adequate direction and editing. Regardless, Ben Carson accomplished great things and this film probably only tells the big stories. It was on Netflix. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member só digo uma coisa: brabo Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review renaldo d The plot and timing of the movie is excellent.
