  • It unashamedly rides on a healthily patriotic good-will, creating a story that attempts to relate to every class and creed of Britain, albeit in a light and warm-hearted manner.

  • ...watching Fast Girls is a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and a particularly welcome contribution to the genre because it focuses on female athletes competing in a non-glamour sport.

  • [W]holly unsurprising... yet this flick is wholly winning thanks to its abundance of good cheer, generosity of spirit, and refusal to go too easy on its protagonist.

  • Devoid of anything daring, Fast Girls makes some of the right motions but never rises above its cash-in status.

  • The social backgrounds are crudely etched, the races (edited to a synthesised rock score) unexciting, the results predictable.

  • The Makers of Fast Girls are likely hoping that international viewers will see past the movie's promiscuous use of Union Jack waving to focus, instead, on a tale of plucky sporting underdogs.

    Predictable but winningly made against-the-odds, underdog, rags-to-riches story with plenty of genuinely air-punchingly exciting sequences and a moving thread about family by choice as apposed to family by genetics. Anchoring it all is Lenora Crichlow's superb lead performance. This is what Rocky wished it could be. Try not to cry like I did.

    The film is totally predictable and was obviously made to cash in on Olympic fever last year but I still enjoyed the story of a working-class runner making good on the International circuit. No cliche is avoided along the way but the cast are likeable (plenty of known British face to enjoy, especially from TV) and they actually look like they are competing athletes which heightens the drama. I got swept along by the end and was smiling at the final finish line. Not great British film-making but still enjoyable.,

    A enjoyable feel good film to get you in the mood for the London Olympics. It has a good array of British acting talent on show. A bit cheesy but fun nevertheless, and with a cool soundtrack to round it off!
