Chariots of Fire 
Chariots of Fire review
2.5/4 stars

The story revolves around Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson) and Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross), who are running for a cause. Such as simplistic plot should not have exceeded more than an hour and 30 minutes. So many background figures and slow motion sequences slows the movie down. The training, physic and atmosphere of the Olympics were exhibited realistically. The score obviously plays a huge part to make the film engaging. Definitely one of the most memorable scores in film history. In terms of entertainment value, this critic widely prefers Rocky with its detailed character development, inspiring soundtrack and likeable supporting cast. This picture did alright with the cast, if only they were more memorable. The director could have emphasized the two leads instead of focusing on other individuals. Overall, Chariots of Fire is well renowned for its background music, scenic cinematography but simple story of two men who made a legacy.
