Critic Reviews for 50 to 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

The true-life horse-racing tale "50 to 1" takes forever to get galloping - and when it finally does, it's too little too late.

If "50 to 1" were about 15 minutes shorter, all of this might have made for a passable diversion. As it is, "50 to 1," much like Mine That Bird, flags before reaching the finish line.

Though infinitely more real than the symbolically bloated Seabiscuit of over a decade ago, 50 to 1 never completely gets under the skin of horse racing.

April 10, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Captivating us with the story of the little two-year old horse that could, and did, [Jim] Wilson makes us all feel like winners.

December 14, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Wilson has owned and raced horses for years and once had a 190-acre ranch in California. And he has made the kind of film he might have seen as a kid, one where patience and hard work get rewarded at the 11th hour.

Earnest but cliche-ridden...you're left with the feeling you've seen it all many times before, and needn't have seen it again.
