Good True Story ...
5 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a reasonably good movie. The acting was decent and the storyline keeps you engaged to follow along to see whether Tai gets back into skating or becomes a different person. True stories have the allure that you're watching something that more or less really happened and you get to learn how an individual progressed through a transformational or turbulent time.

This movie was no exception - I wanted to continue to watch the movie to see where Tai ended up and how bad things were going to get ... and what happens to Randy, her kindly (as portrayed) skating partner. Knowing that the events portrayed occurred decades ago, I knew I'd find out the short and long term answers.

As far as the characters - Tai was the only believable character in this movie - the rest of the cast came across as pretty vanilla, one-dimensional and predictable. But that's OK, the movie is still reasonably good.

For the general viewer, this is a pretty good made-for-TV movie; if you're into skating history - definitely a movie to watch.
