It's not a bad film, but Towne and his star, the charismatic Billy Crudup, never fire the imagination in the way their inspirational, respectful biopic is obviously intended to.

Sutherland's performance is the film's treasure.
January 1, 2000
A zippy, straightforward and entirely superficial film that reduces its subject to Rocky in running shoes.

Its wisdom, and clearly Mr. Towne's, lies in the film's way of filtering a young man's headstrong nature through an older man's more rueful point of view.

Replete with slow-motion running, sweat-dripping faces, and gut-wrentching drama, this is a must-see for any track & field fan.

Donald Sutherland walks away with the film.
January 1, 2000
A sturdy, hero-worshipping picture that underplays the boasting which made Pre less sympathetic in last year's version by Hollywood Pictures.

Where can a movie like this go except straight into a brick wall?

It's a great American story.

Even at almost a full two hours in length, the movie feels as trim as its star.

Definitely has its problems, but it's still one of the best sports movies I've ever seen.

It's a good, solid little film about a man whose story deserves better.

I wish I could write that he is "without limits" as a director, but it is Towne's flair for the obvious that prevents this picture from going that extra mile.

Beautifully made and features a marvelous performance by Donald Sutherland as the track coach Bill Bowerman, but the movie is no more than moderately interesting.
January 1, 2000
Without Limits makes for an engrossing examination of the will to win, the importance of icons in American sports, and the interference of money in amateur athletics.

If you are, like me, a reluctant consumer of sporting films, you are in a for a terrific surprise.
