      Over all the movie was a great watch. It was a fast track into Lances Tour de France life and his quest to win. Some information was lacking but the point was well reached. A must watch.

      Another story of Lance Armstrong's demise, but well acted and loved the way they mixed original footage in with newer to bring a sense of realism to it all.

      Although the movie doesn’t go into detail, it does provide a good recap about Lance Armstrong’s battle with being honest.

      Good as a story. I still think Armstrong is no guiltier than any other but this is still a good story.
