The most kinetic of period pieces, the least pious of biopics, Walsh's Grand Illusion, an elegy for men trying to hang on to the notion of blood sports as games of honor

Walsh trusts his viewers to value ability and wit over humility and pathos, resulting in one of the most roundly entertaining of all sports films.

One of the most lovable, funny and enthusiastic of all film biographies.

...has all the exuberance, excitement, romance, and high good humor that is missing in many of today's so-called inspirational sports films.

Romanticized Jim Corbett boxing fable; Flynn is still fun to watch.
| Original Score: 4/5

Superior -- if largely fact-free -- biopic with Flynn as the character should have been rather than as he was.
| Original Score: 4/5
