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.
Great movie; great story
Great movie of a compelling true story of Graham Obree and his challenges physically, competitively and mentally. If you love to ride your bicycle, you will love this movie.
For those who 1) dream BIG, 2) work hard to materialize the dream, and 3) desire recognition for their work. Movie might reduce your pharma expenditures.
Great sleeper of a moving. An endearing story about one man's battles with depression and his attempts to run away from then. In the end he seemingly reconciles these personal demons and apparently goes on to lead a rather normal life. An enthusiastic two thumbs up!
