The movie is beautifully filmed and shows off the gorgeous but dangerous Alaskan landscape. Lance has a natural presence about him and you can’t help but feel for him. As with any person their life is complicated. In the brief 90 minutes of the movie we get a quick overview of his life. Nothing is really explored a whole lot. But his courage and determination shines through. In doing some reading there has been a lot more Lance has had to overcome, especially with relationships and money (even after his wins) which are not really explored in the movie. I also wish we learned more about his dogs and his kennel. He has a special connection with his dogs but we never get to see much of that in them move.
Overall: B+ A great looking and inspirational film. But I do wish we got to learn more about him, but to cover everything it would have had to be a long film. For a quick introduction to him and the world of mushing it covers what it has too. For more info on him check out this great article in ESPN.
