The filmmakers give us plenty of opportunity to see that Nyad is an awful, awful human being but they can't unite it with the inspirational and celebratory tone of the movie. I'm 100% serious if i say with a few edits and a different soundtrack this would be a fantastic horror movie about a narcissist that takes 40 volunteers hostage to help with her self-mythologizing. There are some shockingly scary shots of Bening in her swimsuit and mask. The flashbacks are laughably reductive and clumsy

Pretty good example of the feel good inspirational biopic genre (if you ignore that there might be more fiction than fact) thanks to Bening and Foster's work but doesn't even really try to get away from the formula on those movies and also doesn't really overcome the inherent flaw (the sapping of most of the suspense/peril since you know how it ends). Very safe/unambitious but decent way to spend two hours. The kind of movie that would have snuck into the best pic nominations in a weaker year.

Passable fluff. Mostly just a vehicle for the lead performances, which are solid even within the by-the-numbers narrative.

Just a good old-fashioned crowdpleaser. Slavishly devoted to tropes of the underdog sports drama, but the cliches work! Bening and Foster are both excellent and their rapport is immensely likable and engaging. I did kinda hate the childhood flashbacks, but oh well.

Impressive stuff from Bening and Foster, but the movie is a bit weirdly built and doesn't touch the controversy of the story at all.
