Eddie the eagle is finally out on DVD.
If you’re sad that the Olympic games have ended then Eddie the Eagle is the movie for you. Indeed, it will take you back to the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. Inspired by true events, this is a must-see. It is a great homage to one of the world’s most unlikely athlete.
From a very young age, Michael ‘Eddie’ Edwards (Taron Egerton) has only one thing in mind, going to the Olympics as an athlete. The years go by and despite the countless change of disciplines, the many bruises and broken bones, he never gives up. His father is getting desperate. His child is no athlete and this quest will not give him a career. Money is running out but Eddie has finally found his path. He will be a ski-jumper. With the help of his mother, he goes to a renown location to train. Unfortunately, a never-give up attitude doesn’t win you the gold. Fortunately, it does land you a great coach (Hugh Jackman). Together, they will attempt the impossible. Against all odds and against a whole nation, this heartwarming story cannot be overlooked.
Taron Egerton is hilarious.
His performance is absolutely brilliant and therefore we cannot help but fall in love with Eddie. This character seems unfazed by the enormous criticism raining down on him. He is a young, innocent Brit that will stop at nothing to achieve his dreams.
I absolutely loved Eddie the eagle. The story of this underdog is truly inspiring and deserves a solid gold medal.
Eddie Edwards: I heard you were a champion so I was thinking maybe you could give me a few tips.
Bronson Peary: Give up. There’s one for free.
I would recommend this movie to anyone. It is funny and touching.
