Storyline

Coming of age in small-town Oklahoma. High schooler Cal Chetley is a brainy beanpole who lives with his widowed mother. Ten years earlier his father, a state wrestling champion, died in a car crash. Cal's older brother Mike, also a former wrestling champion but now down and out at 28, is estranged from the family. Over the course of a fall and winter, Cal joins the high school wrestling team while searching out Mike to ask for help. Mike rejects the offer, but Cal is persistent. Will Mike accept the challenge or is he destined to let Cal down? Giving advice and encouragement are an enigmatic old man named Red and a quirky friend named Luli. Then, there's Cal's mom who must be reckoned with. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In the USA, there was a mere 18 days between the theatrical and home video releases. This is possibly a record for the shortest amount of time it has ever taken for any film to go from the cinema to home video in North America. On September 10, 2010 the movie was released in a limited capacity theatrically, and it was released on September 28, 2010 on DVD (sold exclusively at Walmart) and Blu-Ray (sold exclusively at Best Buy). The DVD and Blu-ray were later released to all national retailers on December 28, 2010. See more »

Goofs

No wrestling coach would permit any of his wrestlers to make a grand solo entrance (with lighting effects and pyrotechnics) or enter a competition wearing a warm-up outfit that wasn't team issued. (Officials might jump all over this, too, especially at the District level.) See more »

Sometimes Legends are born from struggle and sweat.
16 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Legendary is a nice decent family film that has some violence a little bit of swearing and no nudity. There is a bit of violence but nothing too disturbing. Cal Chetley is a lost soul his family splintered apart ten years ago after the death of their father a Legendary Wrestling Champion. His older Brother Mike is also a legendary Wrestling Champion but Mike disappeared years ago and Cl is looking for something to understand his family so he enters the world of High school wrestling. It's a world in which his brother and his father were made for and their legends loom large. Cal wasn't made for wrestling so he seeks out his brother and slowly draws him back into his family's life by convincing him to train him in how to wrestle. Cal learns how to wrestle and Mike learns how to forgive himself for mistakes made years ago. John Cena may never hear the words and the Oscar goes to John Cena but he is learning and Legendary is undoubtedly his best work yet. If John Cena is looking to rival the Rock in making good movies and good family entertainment as well as Action films. Then I say the Rock has a New rival in the world of film making and that is John Cena. The Film is a bit cliché and a bit original and never boring or dull. It's worth watching on a cold winter's night or a rainy afternoon with the family.
