If they wanted to make a film about sports or sports comebacks, there are certainly better films. If they wanted to make a film about alcoholism, there are certainly better films. Even if they wanted to combine alcoholism and sports there are certainly better films., So why did they make this film? There's nothing really wrong with it, apart from the obvious cliches they were compelled to put in there. But what does it add? In fact, most of the time it's depressing so there really isn't much entertainment value here.

A solid sports/redemption movie with Affleck in possibly the best performance of his life, that falls short because the titular "way back" part of the story for Affleck's character is over abruptly and way too neatly in the last five minutes of the movie. I wish the movie had devoted the majority of its non-basketball screentime to this.

Some might think my rating is too high, but honestly, this film hit my feels hard and knowing Ben Affleck's past makes me love it even more as you can see the passion he has for the role. Was a really inspirational film in my opinion and is a must-watch for 2020.

Though it’s a slow movie, I thought it was well acted and the storyline was good.

I’m not the greatest fan of inspirational sports dramas, but I also never disliked one. They all follow this storytelling formula that everyone recognizes, but it’s always successful. The protago More

Finding the Way Back, originally called The Way Back but changed probably to stop confusion with several films called The Way Back or the excellent The Way Way Back (it certainly has no similarities with that film) is a reasonably entertaining film but I cannot say it is enjoyable or made to be.
