I didn't have high hopes for this film before I went to see it because I thought it was just going to be predictable. But it was amazing! You really connect with the main character through her athletic career and you are on the edge of your seat in the races. I went to see it with a couple of friends just for a day out and we came out of the cinema very happy - much happier than expected! As Fast Girls is just out at the cinema, it hasn't got a review yet on IMDb and I was unsure whether to see it, as I usually only see a film that is 7 or above. I think that this film is well worth <more>
at least an 8! Comedy, the Olympics and a little bit of romance... what more could you want?
It is one of the best motivation movies i have ever watched. the way they did it is just amazing. during the training you can see how important this was for them, witch also makes them great actors. it was really good and i fully recommend it to everyone.
Rocky with Britchix (by neil-476)
Black working class East London girl Shania qualifies for the British 200 metre squad and is put forward for the women's 4 x 100m relay team. However, also on the team is posh white Lisa whose dad is a wealthy former athlete who has influence within the athletic establishment. And Lisa takes an instant dislike to Shania...Fast Girls is essentially Rocky with British girls in running shoes against a backdrop of soap opera bitchiness. But, for all that, it's not bad. The characters are all reasonably well drawn and nicely played, the soap opera antics are well within the realms of <more>
believability, the film is nicely photographed and, of course, the races genuinely get hold of you and nearly have you out of your seat cheering the girls on. I'm not a sports fan, and why should I care about fictitious races? But I did.I could have done without the music on the soundtrack, but I recognise that this is an attraction for a good part of the target audience and, for me, it was only a minor distraction.I enjoyed this film much more than I expected to.
Makes you feel ridiculously confident (by rainabosniac)
First saw a scene of this film back in 2014 and I fell in love with it. For months I couldn't track it down but recently someone recommended it to me. I was so happy to be finally watching it. It really does give one a confidence boost and I felt like I could take on the world after watching it. Love it and definitely recommend it.
