Movie Review – Run the Race – Faith-Based but Sad

Read Time:1 Minute, 30 Second

Movie Review - Run the RaceAs is my usual, I’ll address the target audience first.

Run the Race has all the ingredients needed for a faith-based movie — a loss of faith, a terrible tragedy, hope, and renewal. Christians of all denominations will be satisfied, and happy with the outcome. (Does anyone write a faith-based movie where God doesn’t prevail?)

Now I’ll address the mechanics of the movie: The pacing was dreadful, with too many protracted scenes of very little payoff.

Couldn’t live without this app anymore. Perfect to time my run for another glass of wine or two. Works great with my smart watch.

The acting was sub par, with the exception of the coach played by Mykelti Williamson. Does that name sound familiar? Mykelti is Bubba Gump, and his acting was the real stand-out. The remaining cast came across as wooden, bored, and not very interesting at all.

The setting for the movie was excellent. Principal filming took place in Birmingham, Alabama, which is only 15 miles from Bessemer, and yes, Bessemer is a dying town. I lived in this area during the 1980s, and graduated from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, so it was a real trip down memory lane for me.

The ending didn’t leave me with a sense of hope and renewal; I just found it to be very, very sad.

Grade: C-

About The Peetimes: Run The Race is a short flick, so I felt 2 breaks were sufficient. The pacing made it fairly easy to choose 2 Peetimes and not miss anything important.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Run the Race. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Rated (PG) for thematic content and some teen partying
Genres: Drama, Sport, Religious
