Movie Review by Movie Addict
February 1st, 2009

Favorite Movie Quote: "Superman! Superman! Superman!"

I am a sucker for sports movies where an individual or team overcomes adversity to become champions. I really don't care for the sport of cycling, seeing it just as a two-wheeled version of NASCAR, round and round and round ad nausea, but it was the man, Graeme Obree, played by Jonny Lee Miller, that was interesting.

Battling depression and Ernst Hagemann (Steven Berkoff) really would take the courage of Rambo. I never could figure what Hagemann had against him, but his antics would make anyone crazy.

Brian Cox was fantastic as the minister that was there for him.

Laura Fraser (Land of the Blind, Iron Jawed Angels) was also excellent as his wife Anne.
