Movie Review: Eddie the Eagle

‘Don’t tell me you never had a dream dad’ tells the ambitious Eddie Edwards to his father as he outsets his course to become England’s first ski jumper to compete in the Olympics since 1929 but more importantly to live up his dream. Dexter Fletcher brings you story of a dreamer who dares to take a stand against all odds and breath the conscious of what he absolutely believes in. An anecdote of a novice coached by a drunken master – star player of his own time – and how the team struggles to secure a place in the Winter Olympics is not just inspiring but exhilarating and humorous in it’s own unique way. Hugh Jackman (Bronson Peary) is exceptionally outstanding, Taron Egerton (Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards) is admirable along with satisfying shows from the supporting cast. The movie is almost classical and surely ‘… the Eagle has landed’
