      Audience Member An inspiring true story with a wonderful iconic score by Carl Davis. John Hurt is excellent. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Sincere, top-notch performances from Hurt, Edward Woodward (as Champion's understanding boss), Jan Francis and Ben Johnson add credibility to John Irvin's wonderfully made film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member What the synopsis fails to mention is that Champion's horse, Aldaniti (who plays himself in the movie) also suffers a potentially career ending injury and must recover from that while Bob Champion is dealing with his cancer and the treatments. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member (***): Thumbs Up Well-acted and quite inspirational. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member John Hurt conquers--in order--Kirstie Alley, cancer and the Equestrian Grand National. A monumental achievement by any standard. A familiar formula that has been maximized to better effect elsewhere. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member a must see for anyone who has a heart...
