What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Alan Zilberman It's the winner, not skin colour, that triumps on the track.
Paul Boekkooi Jesse Owens se Olimpiese sege hervertel.
Sheri Linden Portrait of a champion
Jim Judy Overall, 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 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.
