Through a few different sittings (busy) I've been making my way through viewing this movie. Man...what a great movie about an incredible talent.

"Seve" was good but I had trouble getting through "Bagger Vance II, The Back Nine."

For a golf movie itís pretty good. Seve was before my time so I really enjoyed the footage of him playing.

Saw it recently. One of the most unique stories in sports. Its like Bo Jackson jumping over a Volkswagon type stuff when he was a kid.

Distinct man. Great he had a wonderful family and rich life of experience. Albeit way too short.

It was a fun movie to watch, if you are a golf fan.  If your are not really in to golf.....I can't see it holding anyone's attention for more than a minute or two....coughs.....my wife.  

But yes, if you want a nice story about how Seve became Seve, then it's a must see.

More docu-drama but I enjoy it. Fun fact, our school had a foreign exchange student young woman golfer from Spain  a couple years ago who knew the kid that portrayed young Seve from junior golf over there. Agree on non-golfers. My wife plays and had this girl as a student so she was all in on watching.

Good insights into his younger years.

Yeah, I figures others here had seen it. At first I thought it wouldn't be good. But, I got sucked in. Hell, I got teary-eyed at Seve's suffering near the end and the emotional Ryder Cup. I think of terrific hands when I think of Seve. Those early scenes of a kid obsessed...yeah, I've seen that here at home with my son. Pretty funny..

I must have watched the 1988 Open 100 times as a kid. He had it all, pure genius.

I can't bring myself to watch this film.

If it's "Seve The Movie" on Netflix, I didn't finish it.  If it's the same one you guys recommend then perhaps I'll give it another go.

Just watched last night.  Overall a decent film.  I actually liked the way they cut back and forth between his youth and his playing days.
