Steve Tevere wants a perfect 10. He’s an elite gymnast who dominates a field where a 9.5 can be an also-ran. It’s the little things that make the difference in Steve’s sport. It’s the big things that may hold him back forever. A troubled home life could destroy Steve’s athletic career in this stirring salute to gymnastics, dazzlingly directed by Albert Magnoli (Purple Rain) to ensure that in the vibrant competition scenes American Anthem really sings. Four-time Olympic medalist Mitch Gaylord plays Steve. Janet Jones brings her sharp dance abilities to the role of a floor-exercise superstar. And some 100 top-level gymnasts take to the rings, bars and other apparatus like the proven athletes they are. Much can be written about a champion’s prowess. Seeing these remarkable athletes in action says it so much better.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Cast and crew are guided by the director from manipulative cliche to manipulative cliche, as everyone tries his or her best to overlook the fact that Gaylord, despite his athletic prowess, has little or no show-business talent.
American Anthem 1986
TOTALLY EXCELLENT & THE SOUNDTRACK ROCKS !!
Only wishing ITunes would carry the soundtrack as well!~ I have been waiting forever for these guys to get this movie!~
It's truly the best Movie of the 80's.
LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!
I grew up with this movie!! A real Olympic gymnast playing the part. Takes me back.
I grew up on this movie too. I have watched it so many times. This is my first movie ever purchased on iTunes. I said I wouldn't purchase any movies but when I saw this movie I had too. I am not one who purchase movies. I just rent them or wait for the to come on tv so this has to be one great movie.
