The intelligent and quirky humour made up for the sometimes stilted scenes. The way the story illustrated how our lives and the lives of those around us can be so deeply and disastrously affected by a single misstep is not diminished by its obviousness.

Winning (1969) es una pelcula "quizs la nica- en donde expres dicha pasin con toda clase de emociones: alegra, frustracin, miedo, etc. Y tal vez nadie (con excepcin de Steve Moqueen), se vea mejor en cine conduciendo en la pista de carreras que Paul Newman. Por eso, lo mejor y ms rescatable del filme son las carrera. James Goldstone, el realizador, hace un gran trabajo editndolas, con una sensibilidad casi documental y una buena dosis de realismo. Hay una escena impresionante de un accidente en plena pista, la cual es difcil saber si son imgenes de archivo, si fue recreada, o una combinacin de ambas.

(kr) wrote: A slam-bang action-thriller. A total powerhouse of an action film that packs just as much star power as it does fire power. It`s stylish, slick, dzzlingly well-crafted and richly performend by the cast. Director, William Kaufman crafts another hard-boiled and intense thrill-ride that delivers all the way to the end. An explosive and adrenaline-pumping edge of your seat action-packed roller-coaster ride. A really entertaining movie that packs a full-clip of action, suspense and then some more. Loaded with great twist and surprises. A great movie that keeps you compelled with its character development and keeps you guessing with its suspense. It`s cool as hell and furiously awesome to watch. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Dolph Lungdren are at their best, they both give great and gritty performances. Gooding still gots the good and delivers. Lungdren is terrific. It`s one hell of a dynamic and sensational face-off between the two leads.
