Start with that the film attracted because will Smith, etc to his presence in the film(or rather the main role) as if the warranty on a good movie. Not I recall his big roles and international fame. He one of those actors from which after the film stay warm, pleasant, inspired by the feelings from his roles. Most memorable in the films "7жизней"," in pursuit of happiness"," rules of removal:Method hitch" His role in these films undoubtedly not leave anyone indifferent. I read will Smith carefully refers to the choice of roles and he cares about whom he is going to play. So it can characters that unusual people, with unusual life and destiny. And learning about the movie" the Protector" I expected, it's possible that kind close to these films, but standby failed. As I was not justified by the fact that I just don't understand the meaning and depth of the film, I'm not might say that movie I liked it. Moreover, I fell asleep in the middle of the film(still I watched it in the morning). Can say: my expectation was that the film those episodes when you think in the end it will be the bomb and whole boring heresy will be over soon and it will be justified somehow. the Grand finale. But unfortunately the problem of the film was set immediately: the protagonist Dr. Bennett Omalu fighting for justice the lives of players, and other than believe his research. The rest of the film is devoted to the resolution of this problem. The problem is global: a threat to the health and lives of the athletes of the football. For me the beginning it was a mystery "how can we solve this serious problem?" and honestly understood end it remains for me unresolved. The film was without any sharp turns of the plot, but still hope was fading in me to the end of the film.(about that the film is based on real events I found out later) Even a bit irritated alternate voices of will Smith, I thought and the truth is he was artavil (I do not know I thought so) in General some moments it was unpleasant to listen to its voice.

Yes, the film draws a good actor, interesting storyline based on real events, but the impression the film is not made expectations not realized.

To a very talented forensic scientist, neurologist Bennett Omalu gets so to say the Desk, the corpse of a real football legends. The idol of millions, committed suicide at the mysterious circumstances. His last years star soccer held in isolation, deprived of reason. Before the medical examiner is the task to find out the true cause of death and conduct appropriate analyses. The results of these analyses lead to the amazing a terrible conclusion. Bennett Omalu the only one that understands the seriousness of the problem and decides by all means to reach out to the rest of the world with the shocking truth. The thing that Omalo was able to discover that football literally killing people, by means a concussion of the brain, which in turn causes the players CTE.

Defender based on the article GQ magazine about problems with their health of athletes. To really affected the film, the problem is really serious and has great implications for athletes. She is able to bring the person to suicide just dry the brain, transforming human vegetable. With this had to face the usual coroner, and how almost completely close to this, not wanting to fix something or find a solution.

The film Peter Landesman something similar to our excellent domestic film "Fool", Ryazan Director Yuri Bykov. Here it is possible to draw Parallels between the main characters. Hero will Smith same naive fool like plumber Nikitin, trust in yourself, to change something, to soften the whole huge system that it recognize their mistakes and refused to flourish, siphoning off millions and the like. The main character genuinely believes in justice and honesty, but there that people who feed from this trough, not even strikes true. The only difference is in that unlike the film, where the Director has shown strong, but true reality is revealed beloved by Americans is a happy ending.

Defender in first and foremost focused on the story of the story. Here there is really the dynamics or the atmosphere, tension, yeah anything. For the authors ' primary goal was to convey to a mass audience that history and sort the shelves, the essence of the problem, and not to pamper us gum and candy. So that such films as this, really need to watch to understand the essence not to miss the details.

Defender (or original title "Shake") correspond to the subject of the film. In the first case — it is the protection of human health, in the second — it's brain damage, traumatic damage caused by game in football. In Russia we call this type advantage of American football. For our country this kind of sport a bit alien and uninteresting, even to say that this football — is far from our culture, so maybe this film is not out in the Russian box office, and box office at the film is low enough, I think this is associated with the what theme of the film in the U.S. so typical and at the same time relevant and topical, so the film is not has caused great excitement. From add myself, I like movies on sports theme, the I looked few films on the subject of American football, so I knew the specifics and the essence of the sport.

In the main role of a talented and charismatic will Smith to already proved he can play a dramatic role. According to the film he plays a young pathologist Bennet Omalu have it has a distinctive — he talks with dead patients. Dr. Omalu after the autopsy of the brain of one of the famous players, decided to do research of the brain damage football players and his research has led to that American football kills and destroys the health and life of people, and accordingly the families of the players. But not everything is the truth.

The nature, sports, and it is a professional sport, regardless of which is kind of sport, at the same time and useful it is also detrimental for human health, but we used to say that the man himself chooses his way of life and only the person responsible for your actions, deeds and most importantly — for your choice. But when it takes the medicine and scientific facts, hard to resist reality and true football fans, the players, the U.S. Congress and officials made of Dr. Omalu the enemy and positioned as the man-hating football and all it is due, though actually the Doctor only tried and wanted to help poor players and warn them from injuries of the brain. In the same time, the public is very important, and officials with his manipulations and pressure can corruption in the two accounts to close on all eyes. When they are supposedly not noticed denied the facts of brain injuries from players, rejecting all words all the supporting facts, Dr. Omalu. But Bennet not departed from your him in meeting on which was also attended by some of the wives of the dead or ended the players, completely and with great precision to determine the position of Dr. Bennett's Omalu at against football, that all knew he he want to tell to tell the world.

London — completely average movie, in mostly focused on the American spectator, which is not has caused great excitement among the audience with a good dramatic game will Smith.
