It takes a fierce three-day bicycle race up in the mountains to reunite two formerly feuding brothers in this film written by Steve Tesich, the creator of another cycle movie, 1979's Breaking Away. This film will please the cycling lovers out there, as it includes actual footage taken from the famous Coors International Bicycle Classic, held in the Colorado Rockies. The plot revolves around the suspicion that one of the two brothers -- either the pragmatic sports doctor Marcus (Kevin Costner) or the impudent, driven David (David Marshall Grant) -- is likely afflicted with an inherited tendency toward cerebral aneurysms. ~ Rovi
This is a great movie - Even if you're not a cycling enthusiast. 20 years later it still has all the elements of what makes a movie great. Romance. Competition. Action. Family Conflict. Resolution. Product Placement. And Rae Dawn Chong in a mens shirt and nothing else.
It's also neat to see Kevin Costner before he made it big.
This movie is not going to win any academy awards for best drama, but it is incredibly inspirational in its challenge to push toward victory with no excuses. The message and competitive nature of this film is unrivaled.
