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>

Did You Know?

Trivia

The song that plays in the background many times and that Cal comes out too for his match in the end is sang by John Cena who plays his brother in the movie...it is also John Cena's original song that he came out to when he wrestled in WWE.. 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 »

Legendary is inspirational
7 February 2012 | by sam_herder5See all my reviews

Legendary is a very inspirational movie to watch. The storyline is simple to follow but is still very intriguing to the audience. Cal fits perfectly into his role as the underdog wrestler and John Cena plays the older brother (Mike) very effectively. This movie has a wide range in audience whether it is a family watching it in the living room or a group of friends hanging out and watching. Legendary does a good job of adding slight twists to keep the audience in suspense but does not get carried away like some underdog movies have. Everyone enjoys a feel-good movie and this is just it. Legendary is one movie that will not disappoint.
