Good attempt in covering a great British hero's final days
I never understood why this has never been released on DVD or video in the U.K. It was released on video in Austrailia and fetches very high prices in auctions.
Anthony Hopkins delivers a fantastic performance as Donald Campbell. The movie is a good attempt in covering his final days but has been spiced up for the screen. There are quite a few in-accuracies but i think that has been done to draw a wider audience rather than just the die hard Campbell fanatics like myself. This film has been scrutinised by many experts for it's inaccuracies, mainly down to the K7 Bluebird hydroplane. Wrong colour for starters.
There are 1000's of people wanting this released on DVD but all requests fall on deaf ears.
