Eddie the Eagle (2016) – Movie Review

 

Movie Review –

Eddie the Eagle (2016) is a wonderful film based around a true story, it has a good cast; all and all the film held up well. Eddie (played by Taron Egerton) was well performed , his acting really pulled the story well as you sort of felt for how Eddie’s life was going. This film has that BBC styled vibe going on while at the same time keeping the story going forward. I really liked this movie and was glad I had gotten the time to stop and see it.

I was quite shocked to see Hugh Jackman with his role in this, he did a great job with it, to me I just didnt see him filling this style of family based film but my hat goes off to him. To sum things simple and sweet, this is a good family friendly film with a beautiful story “based on” true events.

Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4 stars
