Critic Reviews for Endurance
More analytically inclined will be suspicious of the degree of contrivance involved and the stylistic idealization of Third World poverty.
I found the film engrossing, missing only the opportunity to spend more time with the mechanics of distance training and, perhaps through that, to learn how Gebrselassie became the world's best at what he does.
Its mixture of biographical hype and social studies quickly curdles.
A solid dramatized biography of Gebrselassie, and much of it features the somewhat introspective runner with a sunny smile.
He didn't come from a background of training, coaching and determination, but from the rural hills, where we see him running to school, running to the water well, running to the fields, always with that stoic thrumming of his breath.
