Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Never quite manages to whip its disparate story elements into an emotionally moving whole. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

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. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The filmmaking is unremarkable, but the obsessiveness of the lead character is infectious enough to make this drama passable entertainment. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, May 14, 2007

Rotten: It moves, but it never flies. – Anthony Quinn, Independent (UK), Jun 24, 2010

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!

Obree's triumph

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.
