After reading over 200 reviews of "Wind", most of which praise it to the stars and rave and rave on, there is little I can add to such comments as "stirs the soul", "takes your breath away", "one of the best movies of all time", "should be on the shelf of every family with children", and "should be required viewing for young people and anyone bored with life".

This film, one of the best examples of director Carroll Ballard's magic, will knock your socks off and blow you away with its excitement but realism (you will hear and feel the boats groaning and keening with the wind stresses!), and GREAT MESSAGES - It is about losing everything, and winning it all back again through individual and team angst and sheer will (I have shown parts of it to my science students not just for the physics of sailing, but for these timeless messages). Sailor or not, no matter how many times you watch it, it leaves you glowing for hours. - by Daniel fattibene

Just watched an old favorite. Can still remember Jim Moravec shouting at the screen, "Put up the Whomper, Put up the Whomper!!!" in an instrumentation van, in the middle of the desert!

I have no idea how these sailing races were shot. Good lord. Visuals aside Wind is has a decent story pulling us from race to race.

A beautifully-shot and well-acted flick about something I knew very little about. Why was this so criminally overlooked? The character development was a bit thin and the pasts of the two leads were hardly fleshed out so it was difficult to care at times why their relationship failed. Still, there was never a dull moment and the sailing scenes were incredible. Good stuff!

Cool sailing shots, the story was interesting but the characters didn't really make me care for them.

Why is this movie ranked so low? Wind is the best movie about sailboat racing ever made.
