Wind movie was released Jul 15, 1997 by the Sony Pictures Home Entertainment studio. One needn't be a sailing aficionado to appreciate Carroll Ballard's WIND, an thrilling sports drama based on the true story of Dennis Conner, the man who caused national embarrassment in 1983 by becoming the first American to lose the America's Cup trophy in the 140-year history of the race. Wind VHS for sale Unfortunately, in Ballard's film, the Cup isn't all Will Parker (Matthew Modine) loses. ...See Full Description

||IT'S NOT REALITY...BUT A WONDERFUL FILM|
Wind video If you want reality, watch re-runs of the America's Cup. But if you want a fun picture to watch that has it all, take some time to watch this film. Wind film Sure it's corny at times, but its also serious, excellent sailing scenes, and a "Rocky" type underdog theme. I've been trying to find the VHS version for four years now, but it's no longer available. I can't wait for March 11, 2003, for the DVD's release. So I'll still watch reruns of the America's Cup, and then watch a great movie. You can't lose.

||What an embarrassment|
Wind review Because scenes of realistic boats being well sailed, are rare, I have to give this film two stars, but as one who has raced over 60 years, I'm absolutely embarrassed by the plot, and I don't see how it can be said to be something from the life of Dennis Conner. I'm sure it would only be an embarrassment to DC.

Wind VHS for sale This movie is a classic. Sailing kids all over the country (myself included) grew up watching this movie on rainy days in sailing class. So the plot isn't that great, but come on... this movie rocks!! And the sailing scenes really are beautiful. Check it out.

||5 Stars? Are You Kidding?|
Wind movie I'm not an avid sailor, I'm a rabid sailor. There are some well photographed sailing scenes. Big deal, this plot is home brewed by adolescents. The acting is run of the mill. Blah, Blah, blah, if this drivel is all you you need to be entertained, I am truly jealous. The water equivalent of the maudlin drama skiing movie Aspen High.

||great flick, not enough attention|
This movie is awesome. Not just because I'm an avid sailor, but because it shows how determination can overcome all odds. It's got romance, history, comedy, defeat and triumph. What more could a person want in a movie? I'd really like to see it out on DVD.
