Watchable Hubris Tragedy with a Great British Soundtrack - The Program review by PV

Spoiler Alert
14/05/2016

I am no fan of cycling so only really knew about Lance Armstrong after he was exposed.

Essentially, this is a Greek tragedy where hubris (arrogance) brings down a man.

It's watchable, but not thrilling - though the performances are excellent.

Best of all is a superb Great British indie soundtrack (even The Fall on here with Dr Pharmacist).

So 3 stars.

Fascinating watch - The Program review by DS

Spoiler Alert
15/04/2016

I really wasn't sure what to make of this film and didn't believe it would be something to my taste, but having followed Lance Armstrong's career I was interested in the story behind the story.

Lee Pace is excellent, and portrays a very driven Armstrong, who comes across as ruthless.
