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.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the WWE's better films September 28, 2010
By Jim
Format:DVD
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars WWE Studios First Drama...And A Pretty Good One November 25, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent coming-of-age July 16, 2011
Format:DVD
This film isn't really about wrestling; it's about the main character's journey into manhood. In the beginning, we meet Cal, a string-bean of a young man, who has some fire in him but doesn't know how to channel it.

Cal is somewhat in the shadow of his big (and buff) brother played by John Cena, who is known throughout their hometown as a former high school wrestling champion. Their father has died, and Cal decides to go out for the wrestling team to understand what his father loved about the sport. It also provides a chance to re-connect with his long-estranged brother, Cena.

Unlike other loud, shoot-'em-up, WWE movies, Legendary is a surprisingly quiet, family film about one boy's dream to prove he can wrestle and his desire to connect with a brother he clearly idolizes.

Cena's acting is solid in the film, proving he can do more than play an action hero. Danny Glover plays a local who just happens to be around when Cal needs advice and encouragement. At one point, I found myself wondering if Glover was supposed to be God or an angel because his character gives an aura of peace and unselfish fatherly love.

This movie stands out due to a lack of sex and foul language--a rare trait it most recent films. The one glitch is an early scene with Cal's quirky girlfriend who allows some schoolboys to see her breasts. The scene is shot from the back so all you see are the boys reactions, but I believe the movie lost points with parents--especially moms--for this scene. It adds nothing, and in my opinion, the scene should have been cut.

One thing the film lacks is a real sense of what Cena's character was like prior to seeing his little brother again.
