Movies in Review: “Eddie the Eagle”

Eddie-the-Eagle-Movie-Poster-2The trailer for this film definitely had me hooked. Not that anything was exceptional about the trailer, but I love a good underdog story. It was hard not to fall in love with Eddie’s perseverance. Not to mention every time I watched the interaction between Eddie and his Mum it warmed my heart and made me smile. 🙂

The talented star of the film, Taron Egerton, has a very bright future ahead of him. You might remember him from The Kingsman as “Eggsy”. I loved this young man as Eddie. I think he did a great job of representing Eddie’s real likeness. Eddie is a character himself in the film, but the enjoyment of the movie is intensified by his parents, who add a great bit of humor to the film. I enjoyed them the most. Hugh Jackman was cool, but nothing really special about his performance.~shrugs

I enjoyed this movie very much. A great feel-good movie that will have you leaving the theater smiling. I found it to be a true inspiration. Good movie to take your tween too, although they might find it corny…lol. A nice story filled with heart and humor. This makes a nice date movie or something I’d see at a matinee…B+

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.
