I loved this film because it takes an honest approach to the competitive nature between woman. It's message about over coming differences, challenges and unity in sisterhood is motivational and inspirational for all. Great acting as well and an amazing soundtrack! This movie really delivers a flavor of London!

Bought the Fast Girls DVD for my young teenage daughter who is very sporty. She adored it and is now telling all her friends. Good value

For a fiver it`s worth every penny! Ok you`ve seen it all b4 with the poor little black OR white girl struggling to make the grade coz they`re from a poor background off a council estate.

But it works and the actors actually worked their bodies to resemble proper athletes! I know a few reviews here slag the film off but it really is good and as said the cast actually trained themselves to a top fitness level with 600 to 700 sit-ups alone per day.

It`s a good British made family flick to watch with some popcorn with the added bonus of NO swearing!

A incredible DVD that truly inspires all who watch it and it is one of 2012 best family films. It has some fantastic moments and a great plot. The film about overcoming differences and standing up for yourself. My favourite film of the year. 10/10

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and was disappointed to see that one of the other reviews on here had taken such a cynical and po-faced approach to what I felt was a really positive and entertaining piece of British film making. Was the production and release alongside the build up to the Olympics a coincidence? Of course not! But that doesn't make it a bad movie, - frankly it just makes it more entertaining.

So, specifics: a fun, light (ish) and entertaining story, - no, it's not a completely authentic idea and won't be put alongside Shawshank Redemption or the Godfather for deep/complex plotlines, - but who wants to watch movies that heavy all the time?!

Cast: brilliant actually, - nice to see British actresses playing British characters, - Lenora Crichlow and Lily James are excellent - with some nice supporting work from Rupert Graves, Noel Clarke and Philip Davis. Slight criticism would be that it was a shame the 'other' girls in the squad didn't get more lines/screen time, Domonique Tipper in particular felt sadly underused.

Score: Absolutely top notch. Some really fantastic tracks that (if you're anything like me) you'll be humming to yourself for days afterwards, - all of which are well chosen for the scenes they cover.

Production: Good, although I don't think they were working with a huge budget that didn't detract overly. It was a shame that in some of the long action (i.e. running) shots it was obvious when the 'doubles' had been swapped in for the regular cast, but part of that was apparently because Lenora was injured, which was clearly a tough issue to shoot around and the heavy use of close shots and slow-motion meant it wasn't too glaring.

DVD arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

The story centres on the rivalry in female athletics. Typical posh vs poor underlying theme in the film. Perfectly good film, but don't expect anything profound or deep, it's a fluffy flick, but there's nothing wrong with that. Everyone needs a few of this kind of film in their collection.
