Movie Info

A highly charged, emotional story of a disenfranchised teen living on the wrong side of the tracks. Desperate for a way out, his life collides with an old reclusive track coach, angry at the world with no purpose in life, with who he eventually forms a bond. The two are forced to face their circumstances as they race to save each other and ultimately - themselves. (C) Gravitas Ventures

Critic Reviews for 4 Minute Mile

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

A by-the-numbers tale of inspiration through perspiration.

August 1, 2014 | Full Review…

4 Minute Mile at least has the decency to acknowledge that it's aware of its underdog sports-movie clichés, especially the ones that made The Karate Kid such an '80s classic.

August 1, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Even if the story itself has been around the track a couple of times, veterans like these know how to bring it safely home.

August 1, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

More than one interior scene looks underlit for effect,but that's at least something else to think about as the film goes through its paces.

July 31, 2014 | Full Review…

It's a moving, if occasionally heavy-handed, sports drama that deserves a wider audience than it is probably going to find in its limited release.

July 31, 2014 | Rating: 3/5

A finely written and directed sports drama with a lead performance by rising star Kelly Blatz so deep and affecting it often evokes Timothy Hutton's Oscar-winning turn in "Ordinary People."

Audience Reviews for 4 Minute Mile

An overall semi good-ish running movie. I hated Cam Gigandet's character, Kelly Blatz is okay, but the one who gives it a bit depth is Richard Jenkins. The back story of Jenkin's character would have been good to know, specially how he lost his son and why, why the injury on the leg and so on. So, inconsistencies here and there, but not totally bad, just a bit cliched, but what can you do with these types of movie...
