Movie Reviews

Must have for any Pre fan...GO PRE!!
Kelly Mc | Libertyville, IL | 06/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I became one of "Pre's People" after watching "Prefontaine" (the Jared Leto version of Pre's career). After watching it a few times I wanted to learn more about the real person. I had never even heard of him until I saw that movie and now I was hungry for any info. Fire on the Track is GREAT!!! I loved it. It showed Pre in action...doing interviewed the people in his life. He was a great athlete and will live on thanks to the books and movies and his great fans. GO PRE!!!"
Excellent Documentary, but be advised of problems
Nelson Aspen | Los Angeles & NYC, USA | 08/04/2006

"Excellent documentary on the fantastic, inspiring runner Steve Prefontaine. Narrated by Ken Kesey, with lots of commentary from many of Pre's contemporaries who knew him well (and...Dana Carvey!??), it's superior to the two biopics made about him starring Jared Leto and Billy Crudup.

Be advised, however, that this DVD is only 58 minutes in length and contains NO special bonus features. None! And for it's $19.98 amazon sales price, I think Pre fans deserve a little better. Plus, I had to return it because it was defective to boot.

Rent this one or Tivo it if you're lucky enough to catch it on TV. The aforementioned problems are why I "deducted" one star from a perfect rating.

Go Pre!"
Finally, a true portrayal of a true legend.

"I have seen without limits, Prefontaine, and read Tom Jordan's book on Pre. They all have little fabrications, but this, this is the real deal. All inspiring movies, but this is a must see."
Best Prefontaine Movie Ever

"If you've seen the movies "Prefontaine" or "Without Limits" you will want to see "Fire on the Track". The real interviews and actual footage of his races make this Prefontaine tribute the best out there."
