One of the five best sports movies ever
Jaded by Hollywood’s usually pathetic efforts to portray the real world of sports, I was prepared to be disappointed by this movie. I grew up in Oregon, attended U of O (the setting for much of the movie), and witnessed some of the events portrayed. So it was with a surge of satisfaction that I watched this movie that got it right at each point along the way. The attention to detail was astounding, and the recreation of races was uncanny – I compared it to actual news photos later, and the actors playing competing runners were chosen so well that their bodies and running styles actually match the original men. When a movie cares this much about being faithful to details, you can be sure it will take a quality approach overall. Billy Crudup’s portrayal of Pre is full of inner fire and consistent with the real man; Donald Sutherland is marvelously powerful and yet understated as Bill Bowerman; the examination of the real reasons athletes compete is thorough and moving. Innovative use of music and camera work brings the race scenes to life, and if this movie doesn’t make you want to immediately go out for “a quick ten,” you’re a completely hopeless sedentarian– in heart and body. This is among the five finest movies about athletics ever made.
Made me want to run like The Flash
This is definitely one of the best sports movies ever made as well as one of the most unnoticed movies of 1998. Strange really, because “Without Limits” is an amazing story about Steve Prefontaine. I didn’t know it was a biographical movie up until it showed the Olympics. So when I realized that the main character really ran like the wind and had no physical obstacles he couldn’t overcome I instantly became an admirer of Steve Prefontaine.
Billy Crudup, who truly stole every scene “even” in “Almost Famous” is brilliant as Steve Prefontaine. His amazing transformation into the role of America’s fastest runner was absolutely amazing, and I had no idea who the actor was, I only vaguely remembered his name. Donald Sutherland delivers his performance of the decade and the very beautiful Monica Potter does a great job as well.
The subtle manner in which the director chose to display Pre’s life is admirable and very touching. He truly was a role model. He’s a role model to me now, more than 30 years later. When he was explaining his running logic to his coach I really understood his look on life. He wasn’t planning on being disappointed, he went the distance.
There’s one more thing this movie deserves immense credit for. It made me want to run. AND ACTUALLY ENJOY IT!!!!!!!
A brilliant movie that made me think about my life. 8/10
