Movie Reviews

Baret News - 10/10 by Kam Williams A very inspiring, long overdue tribute to a great patriot and African-American icon.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Mick LaSalle It's amazing, the power of drama to make audiences worry about an outcome that is part of the historical record, but "Race" accomplishes just that.
The Film Stage - 9/10 by Michael Snydel Race is the rare biopic that needs more of its own main character.
Las Vegas Review-Journal - 9/10 by Christopher Lawrence Race is at its most interesting when it all too briefly looks at the way Owens was received by a segregated America upon his triumphant return. But, just when it finally has something interesting to say, the movie fades to black.
Chicago Daily Herald - 9/10 by Dann Gire At its core, Race remains a conventional sports biopic, but one beautifully ensconced in period fashions, vehicles and props, crowned with winning performances from James and Sudeikis, all captured by Levy's sharp, zesty camera work.
Screen International - 9/10 by Tim Grierson "Race" is only faintly stirring, turning history into a dry reenactment.
Consequence of Sound - 9/10 by Blake Goble But Race is best appreciated as an allegorical shake-up with the focus on Jesse's big moments and competitions. And they feel quite big.
Shadow and Act - 8/10 by Aramide Tinubu Race isn't a bad film or biopic for that matter. It's beautifully shot, informative, and has some fantastic actors helming it. However, that's exactly what you'd expect.
Cleveland Plain Dealer - 8/10 by Joanna Connors Owens' performance at the Olympics, a series of beautifully shot scenes, are of course among the highlights of the movie, as are the scenes at the 1935 Big Ten track meet, when he set three world records and tied a fourth.
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 8/10 by Colin Covert Hopkins, a prolific producer/director of B movies, moves things at a steady pace through the film's two-plus hours, getting many facts right, fudging a few and ignoring some. Those it shows with sensitivity are breathtaking.
East Bay Express - 8/10 by Kelly Vance Couldn't anyone come up with a better portrait of Jesse Owens and his times than this?
The Seattle Times - 8/10 by Soren Andersen What the picture lacks is a certain spark. It’s a workmanlike effort that diligently covers a lot of bases...but never achieves a transcendence that befits a figure like Owens.
