The Flying Scotsman

  • 3 stars
  • 2006
  • UK
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Douglas Mackinnon
  • Written by: John Brown, Declan Hughes, Simon Rose
  • Cast: Jonny Lee Miller, Laura Fraser, Billy Boyd, Brian Cox

A well-intentioned biopic of Graeme Obree, the professional Scottish cyclist who battled with a home-made bike, sporting bureaucracy and depression. Despite Miller's muted, understated performance, the stock characters and omission of real life conflicts result in a sports film cliché that drags itself over the finish line.
