Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Wider themes of leadership and social class are explored, but it's fundamentally aimed at cricket fans, who'll doubtless relish rewatching Beefy's heroic feats with bat and ball."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"It's one of those rare movies sure to appeal to cricket fans and non-fans alike."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Tom Hardy's narration is occasionally over the top and things peter out before the Oval test, but few cricket lovers will complain."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"It is quite as remarkable as The Damned United, Tom Hooper's film about the rivalry between Brian Clough and Don Revie."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"[An] entertaining if not fantastically enlightening documentary."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
"There's a bit of hyperbole that suggests the surprise English victory - thanks largely to Botham's heroics - changed English sport forever. But it certainly gave us some unforgettable moments."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"What's most interesting is the attempt to portray Botham as a provincial upstart fighting against the "class apartheid" of the English cricketing elite."
‑ Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph
