... Even if The Flying Scotsman doesn't really ever depart from a pretty standard-issue inspirational sports-flick template, as it's subject Graeme Obree proved, you can still do impressive and mighty things on a fixed track.
[The] cinematography provides a unique perspective on a racing cyclist's view as Obree goes round and round, monotonously, on a slanted track. But an equally compelling look from the inside of Obree's illness offers the film's most stunning moment.
Obree's psychology is fascinating and, even though the competitive scenes mostly involve him racing against himself in a spectator-free indoor track, the movie manages to give its audience a suitable adrenaline rush here and there.
