Storyline

One in three people will suffer from heart disease in their lifetime, but only one in a million will thrive from it. HEART: Flatline to Finish Line is the raw and emotional journey of six individuals from hospital beds to the finish line of one of the world's most grueling endurance events, the IRONMAN® triathlon. Director David Watkins flatlined on the operating table- his heart stopped for 5 minutes. For an otherwise healthy man in his thirties, a congenital heart defect nearly proved fatal. After being revived and surviving a subsequent stroke, he became determined to do something with his second lease on life. Heart surgery is an all too common event. Before long David was meeting people from around the world with similar stories. All had something to prove. This is the story of 6 survivors daring to take on an improbable feat and prove to the world they still have the heart to overcome any obstacle that gets in their way. This feature-length documentary will take you on a journey... Written by David Watkins

A Truly Inspirational Film
17 May 2018 | by jguy1128See all my reviews

HEART: Flatline to Finish Line is a remarkable and truly inspirational film. The film follows several people who have survived cardiac surgery who are now attempting to complete the grueling IRONMAN race. The organization that David Watkins, also director of the film, has created to support these athletes is an amazing one. Each of the athletes in the film have their own amazing personal stories and you can't help but root for all of these inspiring individuals on their journey.

I found myself moved to tears of joy and sadness at multiple points throughout this film. If you are looking for a heartwarming film (forgive the pun), please check out HEART: Flatline to Finish Line. At the very least, you will be motivated to get off your butt and go exercise after the film :), I know I was. I highly recommend HEART: Flatline to Finish Line to anyone who likes great documentaries, inspirational films, or simply great films.
