Critic Reviews for Sprinter

  • Sprinter is a movie that leaves virtually no sporting cliche unbothered, yet it's rooted in a naturalistic, emotional family drama reflecting the specific pleasures and perils of life in Jamaica.

    September 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A crowd-pleaser devoid of false sentimentality, thanks to its disarming young lead, Dale Elliott, and a sturdy supporting cast that includes Lorraine Toussaint and Dennis Titus.

    August 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This jogs along a predictable path, but makes a mad dash straight for the audience's gut right before the finish line.

    April 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Individual scenes work, but it lacks cohesion as a whole.

    April 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Likable enough, but after breaking out of the blocks, the picture gets gassed by the midway mark. The best it can do after that is not "win" or "place," but just "show."

    April 22, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Heartwarming sports drama has sex, language, and drinking.
