A hybrid between the usual "inspiring" and of course totally predictable sports movies, and period jolly hockey sticks public school boy ripping yarn. Memorable mainly for Vangelis' score, this is a reasonably efficient exercise in audience manipulation.

One of my all-time favorite sports films. This is a film that it is impossible not to cheer at - a portrait of an athlete that transcends the sports and focuses, instead, on the human relationships surrounding the Olympic event. Of course, the triumphant final moments rank up there, for me, with films like Rocky and Hoosiers in showing exciting final sporting sequences. The theme, of course, is inimitable and perfectly fits the tone of the film.

As a classic movie, I'm not sure, aside from the soundtrack, why this film was garnered with such zeal by critics and audiences. Perhaps due to the difference of times, but I was quite bored with this film, and not even slightly impressed by the performances of these young men. I will say that the soundtrack is classic in the fact that it gained such widespread fame, but not that it was amazing by any stretch of the imagination.

Not as bad as I was told, this movie is was a pleasant surprise. Although the music is blatantly obvious, there are some other good parts to the movie. P.S. I did fall asleep though - so it could be better?
