An inspirational story of what you can achieve if you are determined enough and work hard. The usual rags to riches and then conquer the Olympics is nothing new but it does tackle stronger issues based on racial and class prejudice.
Pretty much for runners only (even if you're a frustrated one full of cold). But then if you can't enjoy a true story sports biopic about a Sioux Indian at Christmas then when can you. Very enjoyable stuff.
A little slow (no pun intended) in parts, but the final race is classic. Every runner must watch this movie. "It's Gomudi and Clark. Here comes Billy Mills!" I don't know how many times I have relived this moment during my running over the years.
The story of Billy Mills a Sioux Indian who is a talented long distance runner. He leaves the reservation to attend and run track at kansas University to realize he belongs back with his people. But after some tragic events at home and some soul searching he continues to chase his dreams and ends up winning a gold medal in the Olympic games. Pretty good movie but Robby Bensons acting was not up to par, not horrible just not very good.But is is worth watching and having in your sports collection.
How many great track and field movies are there? This one, and only this one. I was able to meet Coach Bill Easton and Billy Mills, so this is a favorite of mine...Better be well ahead of Billy at the bell lap, 'cause he has one hell of a kick!
