What the Critics say

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconOverall, I enjoyed this film enough to give it a recommendation. But like many a second or third place runner, it's unlikely this film will come to mind in years to come when people still remember Chariots of Fire as the gold medal winner and cinematic standard-bearer of movies about runners.

Tomatometer quote icon Race is nowhere near as thrillingly fleet or agile as its subject, but the story -- and a winning central performance from Stephan James -- are enough to carry it over the finish line.
