Hits all the right notes a heart warming inspiring story should hit.
18 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I love movies about science.

This was a very cool underdog story, similar to underdog stories found in sports movies, but this time, the sport is a science competition in which four Hispanic high schoolers dare to dream big by entering a robotics competition on a college level, and they end up surprising themselves most of all.

Based on a true story, when it comes to the competition itself the filmmakers got to keep it real. Their win was not perfect, but for me that's what made this the perfect underdogs become Victorious movie.

And for being his first semi-dramatic role, Gorge Lopez was the funniest I've ever seen in a picture. His name came first as the biggest star (despite having Jamie Lee Curtis and Marisa Tomei as his costars), but he was the supporting actor, cheering on these four boys as they achieve greatness beyond what their environment thought they could.

It's good to see and uplifting film, even better when it's about reality
