Critic Reviews for Chasing Great

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • 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).

  • I went in expecting a film about a Great All Black on a journey to win back-to-back Rugby World Cups and that's exactly what I got.

  • 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.

    March 5, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • 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.
