American Anthem Reviews:

I personally thought this film had integrity and strength throughout from beginning to end. It showed the wars young folks have to face to live up to not only others expectations of them but their own expectations of themselves. Some tasks are harder than others and its normally because either you don't feel your nice enough or you don't feel others see you as nice enough. If you give up you never search out if you really did have it in you to succeed. This film did an nice job of representing that. The gymnasts in the film were excellent, the acting was top notch. The fact that they did movie the film in an old run down building and still made it into a unbelievable experience is amazing. I would love to see more films just like this to present to my own kids. It shows them to never give up on your dreams. That is why I loved this movie.


I didn't receive to see this movie until a year after it was in the theaters, one of my first experiences of seeing a film on VHS (my parents didn't have cable or a VHS player). I was working as a camp counselor at a summer camp for the mentally disabled with a several weeks of youth summer camp in a tiny city east of Seattle the summer between my junior and senior years in high school. It was an necessary formative experience of my youth. I watched this film so many times in the decade following, and I had the theme song on cassette, (I can still hear it in my head "Two hearts beat as one together" 25 years later). It it is viewed in the cultural light of 1986, and you are still young at heart, are a fanatic of competitive gymnastics, and can remember what young passionate love is like, you could play this movie. Makes me wish to watch it again!


I have to give it a 10. I had a life size poster of Mitch Gaylord on the back of my door from 85-92! There was no crush that should match my crush on Mitch. I would have seen any film that he was in, gymnastics or not. Shoot, he was the reason I watched the Olympics back then. American Anthem is a nice movie. It had nice characters and you were really pulling for them. Granted, I was a child when I saw it... but as far as 80s films go... this one belongs in the ranks of Dirty Dancing, The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles. I borrowed the video from a mate and remember keeping it for years. She came and got it a several days before I left for college!! I haven't seen since, but I'd purchase the DVD if there were one!
