      ebenezer v Even though most say they don't like it, but I did enjoy it. It's a simple inspirational sport film with such a BRILLIANT acting from Cole Hauser (even my sister said it out loud). I'm surprised when I realised this movie last for 2 hours because it did not felt like 2 hours. I really recommend it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member As a wrestler, it's always nice to see my sport accurately presented on film--very few get the action right. The Last Champion gets the wrestling right, but little else. The story is slow moving, but doesn't take advantage of the slower pace by developing characters or storyline. Nothing is ever more than a rough sketch. It also seems like it wants to be about Christian Faith, but doesn't want to commit to that either, leaving non-believers annoyed by the religious aspects, and I would imagine the faithful wondering why it wasn't more than superficial. As with any redemption story, this one gets on the sappy side. I suppose you could say the actors were fine, doing what they could with a weak script. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Lovely little film. Excellent acting, inspirational story. Highly watchable! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/04/21 Full Review Audience Member As a former wrestler, and still a fan, I would've been satisfied with a good "wrestling" movie. But this turned out to be a really good movie that happened to have some good, realistic wrestling scenes in it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Good sports movie. Recommend it. Cole Hauser did a great job. Final wrestling match gave me chills. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautifully shot, well-paced, and Cole Hauser’s performance was moving as a small town’s fallen hero. I knew nothing about this movie, and I was pleasantly surprised. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/17/20 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Rick Bentley KGET-TV (Bakersfield, CA) This is a strong tale of what it truly means to be a champion and that doesn’t mean winning a trophy or ribbon. Rated: B Aug 10, 2023 Full Review Ian Kane Epoch Times Director Glenn Withrow (“The Outsiders,” “Rumblefish”) takes plenty of time to develop his characters and gradually reveals their motivations. Rated: 4/5 May 21, 2022 Full Review Andrea Beach Common Sense Media Faith-based sports drama has drinking, mature themes. Rated: 3/5 Jan 14, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
