Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some of the girl power stuff is a bit wincing and it's never totally convincing, but with charm and buckets of energy, you'll forgive it."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"Devoid of anything daring, Fast Girls makes some of the right motions but never rises above its cash-in status."
‑ Emma Simmonds, The List
"An energising offering depicting 2012's challenges and achievements while demonstrating that TV's Crichlow is a strong feature film lead worth in vesting in."
‑ Lisa Giles-Keddie,
"Fleet-footed British sports movie Fast Girls, an engaging tale of underdog triumph that makes up in energy and high spirits for what it lacks in technique."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Directed by Regan Hall, this is benign, family-friendly fare (not as cool, edgy or sexy as I anticipated) and a cheerful enough warm up to the Olympics."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"...watching Fast Girls is a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and a particularly welcome contribution to the genre because it focuses on female athletes competing in a non-glamour sport."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, PopMatters
"The social backgrounds are crudely etched, the races (edited to a synthesised rock score) unexciting, the results predictable."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Little more than a dull if mercifully brief promotional feature for the Olympics."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"This delivers an engaging story, some great performances and, of course, the obligatory training montage."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"Hall, making his feature debut, rarely strays from the underdog sports movie template, but the two appealing young leads come as a welcome blast of deodorant to this stale narrative armpit."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"[W]holly unsurprising... yet this flick is wholly winning thanks to its abundance of good cheer, generosity of spirit, and refusal to go too easy on its protagonist."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"The Makers of Fast Girls are likely hoping that international viewers will see past the movie's promiscuous use of Union Jack waving to focus, instead, on a tale of plucky sporting underdogs."
‑ Tara Brady, Irish Times
"The script moves from one cliche to the next - forbidden romance, enmity mellowing into sisterly solidarity - culminating in a championship showdown that leaves a patriotic lump in the throat."
‑ , Liverpool Echo
"Here is a likable and fun British film: it's a little like Bend It Like Beckham."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Fresh, amusing and very British. We defy you not to shed a tear."
‑ Sophie Haslett, Little White Lies
