The real reason to see this movie, though, is because it makes a big yacht race seem so glorious, such grand adventure. Ballard is a former cinematographer with a knack for visualizing the outdoors.

In fact, most of the action on land is below C level, worth maybe a D-minus at best.

Most bracing and breathtaking film ever made about world-class sailboat racing.
