      Tony H I love this film, the subject matter, scenery and the acting. Anthony Hopkins is brilliant as Donald Campbell and captures the essence of the character on the days leading up to his sad death whilst attempting his speed record on Coniston. A great film that can be enjoyed time and again. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Audience Member Superbly acted by sir Anthony Hopkins, its seems its a very underated film of a true story of pure balls. Anthony plays Donald Campbell cbe, whom was the holder of both landspeed and waterspeed records at same time. I spent quite a while finding this film under Anthony Hopkins bio,not knowing the name, i was looking for the film in about the 70's as the picture seems old,but its 1988 which suprised me much,but then this adds the the realism. I am quite perturbed at Anthony not winning an award for his role in this film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Took a while to get a look at this one as it's not in production any more. The fateful story of Donald Campbell and Bluebird K7. Hopkins is splendid in the lead role. The acting, combined with the period feel (jeez I feel old now!) worked for me, conveying a compelling story without any cheesiness. Amazing what can be done WITHOUT CGI! If you have any interest in the man or the machine, this is worth checking out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
