This was the only film crew granted access to the 2014 marathon. They used over 50 cameras to shoot it. See more »
It was good, but...
First, I liked this doc and the backstory on the Boston Marathon. It was, ultimately, a John Hancock infomercial - which is fine (produced by the company and the name shows up repeatedly throughout). It was very focused on the 2014 marathon, the year after the bombing.
One very big part that was missing - the 1982 Dick Beardsley/Alberto Salazar "Duel in the Sun" race. I was surprised that it wasn't highlighted. Rosie Ruiz is covered, as is the Kathrine Switzer "261" race. Interesting that they eliminated the '82 race, as it's quite famous.
