Great movie. Would have been better without all the swear words, but it was a great story. I agree it felt a bit rushed, but overall, it was a fantastic story.

Went with my 88 year old uncle and his friend. All of us stayed awake lol and really enjoyed the movie. True story is amazing. Filming was so good with the rowing scenes. Intense in a good way where we were cheering them on!

Great true story and feel good movie. The book has a stillness and peacefulness that was missing in the movie. I was hoping the movie would capture. It felt a bit rushed and packed together. I still highly recommend it based on the history alone.

It’s not that “The Boys in the Boat” doesn’t have an inspirational impact; it’s that we’re so aware of being pushed in that direction.

The film is an unshowy but slick underdog sports picture, fluidly told and elegantly mounted. It’s about rowing, for chrissakes; it doesn’t have a post-modern or irreverent bone in its body, and for that, we can be at least a little grateful.

Steeped in old-fashioned virtues and a feel-good underdog story, The Boys in the Boat isn’t bad, but it doesn’t ever navigate its way out of the shallow end of the sports-movie pool either.
