This film was based on a novel by Steven Pressfield but the real inspiration was from the Hindu Epic The Mahabaharata where there is an interesting conversation that leads to the holiest of Hindu Scriptures known as the Bhagavad Gita. Will Smith as Bagger Vance (pronounced in an Indian way as Bhagawan; another name for Krishna) is brilliant and is ably supported by Matt Damon as R. Junuh (alternatively pronounced as Arjuna). The story shows Smith as a caddy and also spiritual guide to Damon...as in the Bhagavad Gita.

A nice, tender film at the hand of writer/director Robert Redford. Matt Damon is the leading man in this film as a former golfer that brushes up on his talents of the past, whilst Will Smith plays a supporting guardian angel type of character which he carries off beautifully. It seems that at this stage in his career, he is better as a supporting actor (as in 'Made in America', 'Six Degrees of Separation' and 'Enemy of the State'), and needs to learn from his more experienced contemporaries like Matt Damon how to maintain audience interest throughout a film. Smith plays a convincing aged character by the name of 'Bagger Vance' who aids Damon in the process of regaining his confidence to win a golf tournament. It is almost a guest appearance in a self contained film which neither belongs to Matt Damon or Robert Redford. It is a film that stands by itself.

One of the very many questions asked.... who is Bagger Vance?? A guardian angel, or just some gifted bloke? I love this movie; the story is wonderful, and the starring roles are played by some of the best.
The picture and sound is of a high quality, and I can still watch it over and over again, glued to my chair, as if watching it for the very first time.
Matt Damon plays Mr. Junah, a golfing champion who returns from the first World War a changed man, a man without his swing. When Bagger Vance (Smith) appears from nowhere and helps him find it, Junah also finds his old self, and confronts his fears of the past.
It really is a remarkable and special film, one that should be seen by all.
I'm still asking mysef.......who is Bagger Vance?? I hope you enjoy it; I know I did.

This is a feel good movie, about a young World War I veteran and former golf pro, Randolph Junah (Matt Damon), from Savannah, Georgia, who is inveigled by his former girlfriend (Charlize Theron) to come out of obscurity and retirement to participate in a golf tournament with two legendary golfers, so that she can save her now deceased father's beautiful golf resort, from those salivating to buy it out from under her, during the great depression.
Initially, Junah refuses, and the reason for the refusal is that he simply has lost his swing. A Deus Ex Machina now enters in the guise of Bagger Vance, charmingly played by Will Smith. Vance simply appears one night while Junah is out on his lawn trying out his swing. Vance persuades him to enter the tournament and offers to be his caddy. A deal is struck.
Junah enters the golf tournament, and as it progresses he gets better. He delves more deeply into himself under the gentle encouragement of Bagger Vance in order to find his "authentic" swing and, ultimately, finds a lot more. This movie does for golf, what "Field of Dreams" did for baseball.
The movie is narrated by Jack Lemmon who, as a young boy (J. Michael Moncrief) during the tournament, saw Junah transform himself under the guidance of Bagger Vance. It is the on screen Jack Lemmon who is summoned by Bagger Vance into the sunset at the end of the film. Just who was Bagger Vance? I say he was the proverbial guardian angel. Viewers, however, will differ on just who they think Bagger Vance really was.
The flaw in the movie is that it is like a Hallmark Card movie in that it sugarcoats everything and paints the past in a somewhat unrealistic manner. Here, a diverse population is depicted as mingling together in a most collegial fashion.

I watch a lot of films including things such as The Sixth Sense and The Green Mile. However this film is just as good as any of those two and deserves to be one of the classics. When Bagger Vance (Will Smith) helps a past golf champion (Matt Damon) to find his swing after fighting in the war I was on the edge of my seat. When I first heard that this was a film about golf I almost had second thoughts about watching it. Thank god I did! With an inspirational script and soundtrack this is a film that everyone should watch!

Robert Redford's films are either excellent or mediocre and i am pleased to say that 'The Legend of Baggar Vance' is excellent.

The storyline is well documented by Amazon themselves, so i will not dwell on it, other than to say that after the first few minutes one is totally absorbed in the plot, which is narrated by Jack Lemmon, in the last film that he made and he briefly appears in the beginning and end. I would just like to concentrate on the performances, the cinematography and music.

The youg local boy played by Michael Moncief in his debut appearance was a piece of really good casting and he is superbly acted and is responsible for this being such an excellent film along with Will Smith, playing the Angel???, whose performance is the best i have seen him play and another piece of great casting.Add to this Matt Damon as the flawed local golfing hero and Charlize Theron as the widow trying to save her late husband's golfing estate, you have a recipe for success. In addition the cinematography is flawlessly executed, while the musical score by Rachel Portman in itself was worth watching the film, i loved it and so appropriate to the storyline. The narration of the story through Jack Lemmon adds to the lustre of the film.

All in all, try to see this film as it is a wonderful piece of filmaking, not a film worthy of Oscar nomination, but just one to be savoured when you want to feel good and be engrossed by a good piece of story telling.
