Jesse Owens' quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler's vision of Aryan supremacy.
This movie was good. The beginning was a little boring but the middle and the end was good. I thought it was cool that he went after his dream. I don't get how they held the Olympics during World War II. Wouldn't it be too dangerous to have the Olympics held in a war zone? I liked Luz. I liked that when he saw Jesse was having trouble he gave him his towel marker. It was cool because they were on opposing teams. He was such a good sport especially when he lost the long jump. He didn't have to do that but did. I also liked that Jesse's coach showed up to support him. I also liked that Jesse fought for him to be his coach. I think it's awesome that he broke three world records and nine Olympic records. He was so popular yet he still had to use service entrances at places. That's kind of unfair but I thought it was cool that he kept his cool and just went with it. He kept his cool in stressful moments and that is very admirable. I liked that he was friends with Luz and was with his wife until he died. It sounds like he had surrounded himself with some good people. I found it rude that Hitler bailed on meeting him although I don't think Jesse wanted to meet such a cruel person anyway. I doubt anybody would. Luz wasn't even a big fan of his own country and was talking about how America had it better. It was cool how everyone celebrated his victory and achievements. He followed his dreams and they came true. I also find it really sweet that when the two Jews get cut from racing he said that "He won't race unless they say it's ok." He was trying to stand up for his teammates. That's the coolest thing anyone can do.
