Rating: 2.5/4 -- James tries too hard to bring closure to Pre's life, and, as a result, strays a little too far into melodrama. The tearful reminiscences at the end, not to mention some of the stuff at the funeral, lay it on thickly. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Steve Prefontaine must have been something special -- everyone says so -- but there's no magic on the screen. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Disappointingly colorless and squeaky-clean.
New York Times
May 20, 2003
Rating: 3/4 -- Here is a sports movie in the tradition of the best sportswriting, where athletes are portrayed warts and all. You do not have to be nice to win races, but you have to be good. Full Review

Even through Prefontaine's obviousness, we feel its force. Full Review
Jan 1, 2000
Rating: 3/5 -- With its moving final scenes and well-developed subject, the story of Steve Prefontaine is a decidedly well-told American tale. Full Review

Prefontaine gets to the finish line in reasonable shape despite plenty of sloppy running along the way.
