Director Roger Donaldson has created a cinematic masterpiece. The story of one mans relentless pursuit of speed, culminating in setting a world land speed record for motorcycles in his class. Based on the true story of New Zealand enthusiast Burt Monroe (Anthony Hopkins), the movie does an excellent job of portraying one mans dedication to achieve his lifelong ambition.
If you enjoy stories where the underdog beats out the big guys… you’ll just love this movie.
Poignant & inspirational. Highly recommended viewing for the entire family.
