    While there seem to be many different opinions on weather or not the facts in the film are accurate, the fact remains that this was a fantastic movie that perfectly illustrated the drive and determination that made Pre a national icon. Jared Leto is amazing as well. Based on his other works, to be honest, I didn't think he was a good choice to play Steve Prefontaine, but he really surprised me and does an Oscar worthy job with this role. Prefontaine is inspirational and a great tribute to a great man. I would defiantly suggest seeing it! Collapse

    This successful characterization is definitely a team effort among actor Jared Leto (the brooding Jordan Catalano of television's "My So-Called Life"), writers James and Eugene Corr, cinematographer Peter Gilbert, and musical director Mason Daring.

    What sets Prefontaine aside from most sports movies is that it's not about winning the big race. It's about the life of a runner.

    For the most part, the documentary segments, in addition to being unilluminating, are intrusive.
