As close to a perfect movie as one can be...,
This review is from: Vision Quest (DVD)
...and I was not a wrestler -- in fact, I rather disliked the sport growing up! What makes this one of the greatest movies, besides the brilliant casting, directing, music and of course, acting; is the way it moves your emotions. If you don't feel complete euphoria after watching this film, you don't have a pulse either. Call it a cult classic, or a relic of the past -- however it gets categorized -- it will go down in history as an inspiring, true-to-life portrayal of youth and passion and the quest for success. Not a single scene in this movie is flawed or unbelievable -- a truly remarkable...yes...masterpiece.

I must disagree with one point of your review. As a former H.S. and college wrestler myself I must say that some of the wrestling scenes flirt with "unbelievable". Mainly because a couple of Modine's moves a not correct and would've gotten him pinned, so that sometimes pulls me out, but hey this is the closes thing we had to "Rocky". I love this movie!

Buz -- over fifteen years later after you wrote it, I'm hear to write a positive comment to your review. Vision Quest really is a masterpiece and you had the guts to say it! Youth and passion indeed! I find it spot-on as well -- and even if there are a couple of "unrealistic" wrestling moves that's pretty small beer and takes nothing away from the emotion truth of the film.
