  • It is quite as remarkable as The Damned United, Tom Hooper's film about the rivalry between Brian Clough and Don Revie.

  • There's a bit of hyperbole that suggests the surprise English victory - thanks largely to Botham's heroics - changed English sport forever. But it certainly gave us some unforgettable moments.

  • [An] entertaining if not fantastically enlightening documentary.

  • Wider themes of leadership and social class are explored, but it's fundamentally aimed at cricket fans, who'll doubtless relish rewatching Beefy's heroic feats with bat and ball.

  • It's one of those rare movies sure to appeal to cricket fans and non-fans alike.

    May 6, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What's most interesting is the attempt to portray Botham as a provincial upstart fighting against the "class apartheid" of the English cricketing elite.
