Yoeman fare, but nothing exceptional.
26 May 2003 | by maeanderSee all my reviews

If you are into sports (especially rowing) and sports movies, you probably will enjoy this film. The cast is likable and does what they can with a script with one too many clichés. Yet another group of young athletes' dreams are cut short by the boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olympics. If you have never played a team sport and had a god-like admiration for your coach, you will wonder what all the fuss is about. Based on a true story does not make it unique or exciting. It is not a bad film. It is just that everything here has been done better somewhere else. You won't not like this film, but unless you have a passion for rowing...you will wonder why it was made. Still it might be worth a rental if there's nothing else you haven't seen.
