Editorial Reviews

Cal Chetley is an extremely bright, engaging, undersized fifteen year-old. He's been picked on most of his life primarily because he's always been a little different. Mike, Cal's older brother (WWE Superstar John Cena) and one time world-class high school/collegiate wrestler, left him and his mother behind years ago after a tragic car accident killed their father...an accident to this day Mike feels responsible for. Hoping to revive a relationship long since forgotten, Cal joins his high school wrestling team in the hopes his brother will train him. More importantly, Cal uses wrestling as the tool to reunite his family.

"I told their father I'd watch out for them if anything ever happened to him ?" That sounds a lot like a line you'd here in a war movie doesn't it ? Legendary isn't a war movie though, it's about high school wrestling. Yet, when Cal Chetley (Devon Graye) reveals to his mother Sharon (Patricia Clarkson) that he wants to join the wrestling team, she reacts as if he said he wants to join the marines.

Cal's brother Mike (John Cena) and his father were so into wrestling that the father died in a car accident on the way to scope out one of Mike's opponents. So Mike is now a drunk bar fighting loner that keeps himself as far away from his family as possible due to blaming himself. When Cal needs to get better at wrestling, he goes see Mike behind his mother's back. Mike is hard to convince at first, but of course Cal eventually gets his help.

Cal becomes more confident, gets a girlfriend and takes on his bullies, no this isn't the Karate Kid. The film is over the top sentimental, but it won me over anyway due to Graye and yes John Cena having chemistry. The film even got a tear or 2 out of me.

Cena, I found surprisingly solid in the first half. I bought that he was a troubled man and he was better than usual and I almost believed that he could act. In the second half when he becomes nicer and a role model, he just phones in his performance and is about as wooden as he usually is in movies. Madeleine Martin however was adorable as Cal's girlfriend. Legendary may not be original but compared to all the other WWE films it's the best. It's a good family film.

After being an ex-Marine & a New Orleans detective, John Cena returns to another WWE film with "Legendary." The movie revolves about a book-smart teenager named Calvin Chetley a.k.a. "Cal" (Devon Graye) who goes to high school in Oklahoma, lives with his mom Sharon (Patricia Clarkson), has a female best friend name Lulu (Madeleine Martin) who clearly has more than just "friendship" feelings for him which he's obivious to, and developed a friendship with an older man (Danny Glover) who looks out for him with good advice. He goes out for the wrestling team knowing the history with his brother & late-father having success in the sport, despite the fact that his mother is against it, but just has no luck at it. On the other side is Cal's brother Mike (Cena) who is a former All-American but very distant from his family, hard on his luck, and somehow keeps getting into trouble. Cal asked Mike to help train him initially & refused until Cal helped him out in court causing Mike to return the favor & train Cal leading to the brothers bonding together & Cal having better success wrestling. However they both still have to deal with issues throughout the movie like facing the issue that caused Mike to be so distant from not just Cal but his mother, Lulu & Cal's relationship evolving into something more, and Mike's past catching up to him.

This movie was unlike any previous WWE film in that this wasn't an action based movie as it was more focused on being a more serious family drama. Cena's role in the movie was very similar to Mr. Kennedy's (now Mr. Anderson in Total Nonstop Action wrestling) role in a previous WWE film "Behind Enemy Lines: Columbia" where he played more of a supporting role than the main character he was in his previous two movies.

Movie was a good family movie but I did not get the movie from here the guy said it just didn't arrive. I waited three weeks and then e mailed him and he refunded my money so I went to wal mart and bought it. I was really surprised there wasn't even an explanation on why I didn't received it.

LEGENDARY

I will admit right here and now that I am a fan of John Cena's movies, yes it is true. I thought "The Marine" was a fun pointless action movie and that "12 Rounds" while seeming like a "Die Hard" spin off was just as fun. This was Cena's third film for WWE and I have to say that it may be his best. It is a realistic drama in which John had to actually act and he was in a co starring role. For some reason when this first came out I wanted to see this more so than any other he had been in.

Cal Chetley [Devon Graye] is one of those kids who is just an outcast and is having problems at home. His mother [Patricia Clarkson] is over protective, his father is dead, and his older brother [Cena] is the black sheep of the family. While he is a scrawny guy he wants to join the schools wrestling team like his father and brother did before him. the thing is he knows nothing about it and his mother is strongly against it.

Now I know some of you are reading that and are saying "that does not sound to interesting". Well if you were thinking that then you would be very wrong for thinking that, especially seeing Cena in this type of film. I have to say that I was very impressed by John here in this film as the brother who has to come back to help his little bro. He is actually really good here especially during the first half of the film. Seeing him play the drunk outcast haunted by his past it is new side of Cena. The last half is more of the guy that you see in the WWE helping out kids and such. Don't get me wrong the role called for that but still.

Devon is really good here in the lead role and makes the film more believable. And for any out there that says a kid like that would never make it in amateur wrestling has no idea what they are talking about.
