Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Never quite manages to whip its disparate story elements into an emotionally moving whole.
Fresh: Tells a tale both fast and moving. And when Miller as Obree takes his whirls around the track, it gets your heart pumping and your blood up.
Fresh: The filmmaking is unremarkable, but the obsessiveness of the lead character is infectious enough to make this drama passable entertainment.
Rotten: It moves, but it never flies.
If your a sucker for true stories like i am you will really enjoy this one. It's a movie full of suspense & thrills. I loved it & will watch it again & again.
any movie with scottish accents and people in kilts will get me but seriously its a good story of never giving up very inspiring!
What can you say about inner demons, trying to push them aside by the pain of 15,000 miles per year on a bike, and welding those together with some Scottish engineering creativity to reach the top of the world? Maybe: "Scots wha hae!", or maybe now also: "You go, Graeme, my lad!" Well worth the rental.
