I liked this movie.....
18 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

LOL- I maybe slightly biased, as I too was a Former Motorcycle Flattrack Racer, who had to decide when to retire. But aside from our personal similarities, I really liked Craig T. Nelson's character in this movie. This is one of the BETTER motorcycle movies. But you don't have to be an avid motorcycle/racing fan to enjoy this movie. There is good character development, and the actors really bring out their(and your)emotions during the course of this movie. That being said, women will also be surprised- and probably enjoy this movie. YES...that means some may shed a tear or two during certain scenes, and that what makes this a good movie, as we begin to care and feel for the characters. Who would have ever thought- that a movie about an aging motorcycle racer, would turn out to be so good. But it's TRUE ! And it's also a Good movie for the entire family as well. Please give this movie a shot, and watch it. You won't regret it :-)
