For a movie that revolves around a notoriously violent sport, Michelle Walshe and Justin Pemberton's profile takes a soft, superficial approach. It makes a rote installment of ESPN's "30 for 30" look like Pulitzer-worthy muckraking.
It's clear where all of this is going, but McCaw surprises with his mental rigor (he excelled academically) and total commitment to his sport (he plays with a stress fracture in his foot).
In all, Chasing Great remains engrossing throughout, offering a close-up look at a very rough and tumble sport. Watching the film, it's hard not to get swept up into the spirit of the fans and the players.
Rugby union fans will draw long and lasting satisfaction from this documentary tribute to All Blacks all-time great Richie McCaw.
Even non-rugby fans will know how it ends but it's worth the nostalgic pain to keep watching until the final siren.
Can't rise above feeling like a current affairs profile piece with great production values and access.
Stimulating if not fascinating.
