Time Out

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.

The List

Devoid of anything daring, Fast Girls makes some of the right motions but never rises above its cash-in status.

Lisa Giles-Keddie

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.

Predictable but winningly made against-the-odds, underdog, rags-to-riches story with plenty of genuinely air-punchingly exciting sequences and a moving thread… More

The film is totally predictable and was obviously made to cash in on Olympic fever last year but I still enjoyed the story of a working-class runner making good… More
