It’s always a bit of a struggle to have an unbiased opinion of a film based on a heartbreaking true story. We wanted to feel inspired by Extrordinary Measures, but try as we might, there’s just no getting around the fact that this is schmaltzy, made-for-tv rubbish, with two pretty dull performances from leads Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser. Sorry. Now down to hell we go.
There’s nothing more heartbreaking than finding out your favourite thrill-flick is based on a load of tosh, so here at Best For Film we have the solution! We count down the Top 5 “based on a true story” films, relishing the truth (and the maybe not so much truth) behind the stories that make us shiver! Dare you join us?
