An average movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Hugh Jackman, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it was really similar to 'Cool Runnings', that's for sure, in fact, the Jamaican bobsled team was involved in the same Olympic games as Eddie Edwards was.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- July 2016 (38 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr 45min. First Viewing As for the underdog story genre, Eddie the Eagle is a fairly entry. Unfortunately, its also an overly familiar one. Familiarity doesn't always equate to bad or boring, but it can if it isn't done with an panache or freshness; which this film mostly is. The leads are quite strong, with Egerton and Jackman finding the right groove for this material, and inject the film with more life than it really deserves. Without them, it would likely be a completely lifeless slog"

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Hugh Jackman, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it was really similar to 'Cool Runnings', that's for sure, in fact, the Jamaican bobsled team was involved in the same Olympic games as Eddie Edwards was. However, the big difference between these 2 movie was that, when I watched 'Cool Runnings', I was just a kid, and to watch such a tale as a grown-up, it didn't really work so well, I'm afraid. Indeed, the formula was just so obvious and the whole thing was just too generic and predictable. Furthemore, the quirkiness and mannerisms displayed by Edwards was actually more annoying than really entertaining but the performance by Taron Egerton was actually apparently quite accurate. And, yet, I have ” read more

"Great feel-good movie with good performances. CGI in the ski jump crashes is awful looking but those moments are short so it's not that big of a problem."

"An English Cool Runnings I suppose. Not much to say here, a harmless feel good inspirational story of a nobody wanting to be an Olympic athlete. Story is generic "athlete overcoming adversity" type story but Eddie and his trainer were interesting enough characters to rise above a plot we've seen plenty of times before."
