Good film about a horse racing legend.

Being AP is a interesting insight to the life of twenty time Champion Jockey AP McCoy. The narrative is mostly driven by McCoy himself, his wife Chanelle and his agent Dave Roberts. Shot over his final season, the film looks at whether he was driven by a desire to be successful, or a fear of failure.

Going into this I had two fears. My first fear was that the film would only appeal to horse racing fans. I think there is enough in this to appeal to a broad audience. My second fear was that it would not be cinematic. The film certainly feels cinematic. It is visually interesting. Slow motion cameras, helmet cameras and overhead shots are used to show the races. This gives them more detail than the standard television coverage. Overall it is an enjoyable cinema experience. Well worth checking out.

In the mould of Senna

Just as with Senna (which I watched with my nineteen-year-old daughter who is left stone cold by cars, let alone Formula 1 - and she was hooked from the get-go) I was gripped from start to finish. You seriously don't need to know the first thing about National Hunt racing or even horses because this film is about what it takes to make a true great - the only difference between A P and Senna is that A P was lucky enough to have faced the decision about when to step down (which is beautifully narrated in the film). Highly recommended.

Superb for horse racing fans

Just watched this film on BBC 2 and from the perspective of a massive horse racing fan it was a superb insight into the UK's best ever jump jockeys career and final season. The camera-work is top quality,y showing many of the major races that happen in the calendar year. The film captures the stress and strain that being a jockey is all about. I think that this film largely appeals to horse racing fans. A non sports fan is unlikely to love watching this but highly recommended for any horse enthusiast. 8/10 from me
