    A brilliant movie and the disparity between the audience and critics is another fine example of critics having no knowledge over the subject but still being so f’ing stuck up as to write a poor review for an exceptional biopic

    There's a beautiful true story at the heart of 8 Seconds, and the performances are great, but it's never enough to overcome its cliched script and poor pacing.
