Caged in his small Alabama town, Eddie Brackett (Bruce Willis) believes the country is on the wrong track and gets a full-blown case of mania when the blue-collar working class win the golden cup in the nation's largest ever horse race. With a gold eagle on his mantelpiece, Brackett sets out on a journey to find the true meaning of his triumph. Eddie the Eagle is one of those movies that made the list for me in recent years and I was really looking forward to seeing it. I was not disappointed. This is a great movie. The plot is not exactly unique but it works well enough, especially since it is a coming of age story. It is about an introverted kid who is going to be the next great horseman and sees himself as a poster child for the young generation. The movie is very well-made, with a great cast, excellent scenery and a really great cinematography. The horse is very well-done. Although there is no CGI, the horses are all very well-developed, each of them having a story and an underlying reason for being there. It is very impressive to watch how good the horsemen are in this movie. They are very believable and you feel their pain and struggle. I also really like the idea of the music. It fits the whole mood of the movie perfectly. The song 'Gone with the Wind' by Janis Joplin is an absolutely perfect piece of music. It's one of those songs that is haunting and emotional and fits the movie perfectly. I loved the song. It is very appropriate for the movie. The songs are very effective and make the movie better than it would be without them. It was a great choice to use this song. The movie also does a good job of showing the true meaning of mania. The horse owners and their frustration is very well-explained. The movie also shows that you don't have to be a big athlete to be successful. You just have to be in a position to achieve success. This movie is very inspiring. You really feel like you are in Brackett's shoes, in this movie, when you watch it. There is a good balance of emotions throughout the movie. It is very funny, and there is also a great sadness and happiness. You really feel the pain of Brackett's situation. The movie is also very well-acted. The actors give a great performance, especially Bruce Willis. He is really convincing in this movie. He really gets into his character and you can see the pain in his face. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. It is a really good movie with a good story. It is an inspiring movie and it really makes you feel the emotions of Brackett. The movie is not perfect, but it is really great. If you like coming-of-age movies and you are into horse movies, I highly recommend this movie.

I had been expecting a great movie, and got a pretty good one. It was about as realistic as you can get. Most of the actors were either actors, or were involved in the making of the movie. That gives you a little more respect for them. The main character, played by Hugh Jackman, is very convincing in his role. He portrays a real human being, and in my opinion is the best actor in the movie. He played the part with perfect realism. He could have easily come off as a "pretty boy" like a lot of other "action heroes" have done, but instead he played it as an emotional person who could not hide his emotions. He was very believable. It would be easy to get caught up in the "fighting" in the movie. But as it progressed, you would start to feel for the character. It was not a fight movie, but it is a "feel good" movie. That is what I liked about it. The ending was also very good. It was not a "happy ending" but a very good ending. It wasn't the "happy ending" that you would expect from an action movie. It was more of a "sad ending". The ending was good enough, and the ending itself was good enough to make the movie. If you have watched the trailers, you would expect a movie where the main character had to fight, but in the end he is victorious. It is not that way. The ending is just the way it happened. It did not make it an "action movie", but it was still a good movie.

The young boxer Eddie Trunk (Steve Carell) is left in a coma after a bout. When he wakes up, his father (Matt Damon) tells him he has to fight a match with the toughest and most famous fighter in the world: boxer Edward Snowden (Bruce Willis). For many years, Edward has been hiding a piece of a puzzle that might reveal the secret of America's surveillance of the world's citizens. If Eddie succeeds, his family will be given the fortune of $50,000,000. If he fails, the deal will be cut with the NSA, Edward will have no hope of winning, and the family will have to live with the loss of their only son. The plot is pretty good. It is interesting and the film does work as a love story. It is a nice movie that may be one of the better Oscar contenders this year. Bruce Willis is a great choice for the role of Edward Snowden. He does a great job and is able to portray his character very well. The film also has some interesting social commentary on the role of government. I did not find the film as offensive as many others have. I think it is very good, but not Oscar worthy. It is a good film, but it is not a great film.

Omar Sharif's latest film "Eddie the Eagle" is a drama-adventure-romance that has been dubbed as one of the most critical films of the year, if not the most critically acclaimed. The film stars Will Ferrell as the eponymous hero of the film, a "straight-A" student and former football star who was an Army Ranger. As the film opens, he is in the middle of training for the upcoming Army Ranger School, and it's here where the true protagonist of the story becomes revealed. "Eddie the Eagle" takes us to Iraq and shows us a young man whose life is filled with long days of training, tedious tasks, and monotone words, as he is pushed to the limit, not knowing what the future holds for him. As we follow him, we see a very young Eddie, going through the grueling training process, and the scenes that follow are the same type of monotone-and-obviously-choreographed sequences that would be seen in a standard action movie. Yet, this film has a lot of heart, and it does show that you can still rise above your situation, and overcome your obstacles. The film has several themes, and one of them is about the power of faith and hope. I don't know about many of you, but I believe that hope is something that can never be taken for granted. This is what I believe the film is about. It takes a very small army and shows the impact it has on a person's life, and how it changes you. "Eddie the Eagle" is a film that can appeal to almost all ages. It has been rated PG-13, and it should be. It contains intense violence and some coarse language, but it is definitely not the type of film that you would have to be concerned with your children's eyes. It is a very light-hearted film that is for adults, and it has its moments of humor, which can be a good thing. The acting in the film was great, especially from Ferrell and Reese Witherspoon. Ferrell did a great job in the role of Eddie. He played his character very well, and I think that the character of Eddie has a lot of personality, and this is what makes the film so great. Ferrell has proved that he is a capable actor in the past, and he really made me believe that he is a great actor. Ferrell does a great job with his role, and he has proved that he is a very good actor. Reese Witherspoon was a very good actress in the role of Sophie, and I thought that she did a very good job. She also had a great performance. I believe that this film was very good, and it is a film that I think you should see. I give the film a B-.

In the 1980s, before the whole TV thing took hold, this movie was highly entertaining. If you want to watch a movie about the origins of the Olympic Games, you won't find anything better than this. It has some clunky moments, but it is really great entertainment. The character of Eddie is so dumb, it makes you laugh out loud. There are many great lines that really get you to come up with your own. The movie is basically about how he got the title. The script is great, the direction is good. The cinematography is great. The music is great. The movie is just an enjoyable movie to watch. It is funny and a lot of fun to watch.

I really enjoyed this film. I thought it was funny, the storyline was well written and the actors were all good. This is my favorite Eddie movie since I have seen him in Once upon a time. This film is in my top 10 best films of all time. This is a great movie to watch with your friends or family.

The film tells the story of Eddie the Eagle. What are the obstacles that he must overcome in order to compete in the Olympics? He is a tough kid who's into sport. He wants to win a gold medal and go to the Olympics. Eddie is not the most popular guy in school but he's the best athlete in his class. He has his hand raised for the Olympic Games and he wants to go to the Olympics. However, he does not have the money to go. His father tells him that it's not easy to go to the Olympics and they don't have the money to pay for it. So, Eddie must raise the money and then he will go to the Olympics. There are some funny scenes but there's nothing new in the movie. The movie was entertaining but it wasn't that good. The actors are good and they did their job. I don't like the characters that much and I don't like the way they were portrayed. I think that they should have been a little more realistic. Overall, the movie was entertaining and I would recommend it to anyone who likes sports and comedy. I give it a B.

It is an enjoyable movie, and I do not mean that in a negative way. I am a huge wrestling fan and I enjoyed it very much. The story was excellent and the acting was spot on. I didn't expect much but I was very pleasantly surprised by this movie. The movie seemed to be very cliched, but I don't think that was a bad thing. I think it was really meant to be the way that it was. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys movies that are slightly different from the norm, but they still hold the same elements that the movie in itself stands on. I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

Eddie the Eagle is not a particularly great film. It is a "feel-good" film that is based on a true story. It has a pretty good script, though some of the dialogue may seem forced. The supporting cast is very strong and provides solid support. The only real weakness is the main character, Josh Hartnett. It seems like he is the only reason to watch the film. He seems to be there simply to try to add some drama to the film. This is not a problem, though. There are so many good supporting characters that the film could be just as good without Hartnett in it. A lot of the actors in the film also have great chemistry with each other. I believe that this is the reason for the film's success. The film is not without flaws. The script could have been better written. The acting is also not very good. Eddie the Eagle is not an action film that is easily enjoyable. But the film has some great moments that make it a very good film.

I am a huge fan of films like this, so I was looking forward to this. But I could not keep myself from checking my watch or turn my head away. The first thing that stands out about the film is that it does not try to impress you. It simply tells a story that is based on true events. I have seen this movie a few times and it never gets boring, but it doesn't have a "touching" quality like some films with "Eddie" in the title. It is just a story that is told well. Not a masterpiece like "Erin Brockovich" or "A Beautiful Mind" but a good story that is worth your time. I give it a 7 out of 10.

This is an OK movie, but is hardly the best movie of the year. I can't say it was a complete waste of time, but it is definitely not the best. The acting is very good, and the movie has a lot of "action" in it, and is entertaining, but isn't exactly groundbreaking. But, it has a lot of flaws, and not really original. I do think that the casting was perfect, but I am not sure if that was the main point of the movie. I think that it was the main point of the movie, but not the reason for it. There is a lot of comedy, and some of it was very funny. It is also full of drama, but not too much. There is a lot of scenes that are "the most emotionless" I have ever seen in a movie. It is also very entertaining, and has a good plot. This movie is just not good, but I think it is not bad either. I give it a B-.

I love a good biopic. I've seen all of Clint Eastwood's films, and I still can't get enough. I don't mind his trademark jokes, and his name is still synonymous with what I like to call a "normal" person. This film is an incredible improvement over the original. I loved the way Eastwood directed it, the movie did a great job of moving the story along. And although I like his style, I didn't find this film overly gory, or violent. It was very funny and full of enjoyable characters. Even though it's a biopic, I'm still surprised that this isn't as well known as some of Eastwood's other films. I'm glad that I watched it. I loved it. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good movie. You'll enjoy it.

This is a very interesting film about two men. One is very professional and the other is not. It is interesting to see both how they deal with the pressures they are under and the way they look at their own profession. The film is full of funny and exciting moments and also touching. This film is a very good film. It is very interesting and will make you think about your own profession.

Most people think Eddie the Eagle is about his achievements and history. The truth is that this film is about his life and how his actions and the people around him affected him and his life. People who say Eddie the Eagle is about his achievements and history don't understand the story. It is about the road Eddie took and how he used his life to make the world a better place. I think this film is a great movie because it shows what happens when a person puts his life and his dreams before his family and friends. If you don't like this movie, then you're just jealous and don't understand life. That's the best thing about this film. I give it a 7 out of 10.

I went into this film not expecting much of it, and the first 20 minutes or so of it were ok. The acting was a little flat. The stunts were good. The writing wasn't great. But as the film progressed it grew on me. The characters are interesting and feel like they're having real human conversations. I thought that the performances were great and that the script was extremely well written. The story line kept me guessing, and the ending was one that I thought was great. I thought that it was an excellent movie, and I would definitely watch it again. I would rate it about a 7 out of 10. If you're looking for a great drama, a good comedy, or just an enjoyable movie, this is it. I would recommend this film.

If you're looking for a book that will give you insight into one of the most interesting sports ever, then I highly recommend this movie. The story is not about a single person, but a series of events. The director does an excellent job of bringing the story to life. It is not only a story about the Olympics, but about the meaning of life, and the meaning of giving up your life to serve others. The director does an excellent job of capturing the drama and emotions that are brought to life. This is a must see film for anyone who is looking for a good story about one of the most interesting sports ever. 7/10

I know that there are a lot of people who want to be intellectually challenged by watching a film, and I can understand that. I mean, there is a certain amount of "class" involved, which is a great theme to start with. However, the movie is trying to go in the opposite direction. It's supposed to be fun, and it is, and that's it. It's a film that is fun because of the "class" and the "fun", but not because of the intelligence. You'll see, for instance, that the producer/director, who wanted to make a film that is "artsy" and not "artsy", used lots of special effects, and that there is a lot of music, but it's just there for the purpose of being interesting. This is the point where I started to like the movie, but then I started to notice that it isn't "fun". Now, I know that the film is supposed to be "fun", but it's also supposed to be intelligent. I can't just disregard that fact. It's a good film, and I'd recommend it. I just want to point out that it's a good film that doesn't deal with class and intelligence. It's just "fun". I'd like to add that I love the fact that the film was made by the director of "The Truman Show", and I'd like to thank him for his work. I think that he has a great vision. He did a good job with it, I think. If you don't like the film because of that reason, I'd like to point out that the film deals with class, and intelligence. You'll see that the director did the right thing in making the film, and that it's not about fun, but about intelligence. I don't want to take the film too seriously, because that would ruin the fun of it. It's just a film, and a good one. I know that many people don't like it because of that, but I think that it's a good film, and I think that the director did a good job with it.

I really enjoyed this movie. I am surprised that it got a low rating here. It's pretty funny. I agree with the other reviewer about the acting. The three leads were great. They were believable and believable is the key word here. And I don't think they could have done better without being known as the Fonz. My favorite scene was when he was talking about his 'Irish girlfriend.' And he wasn't kidding around. When the movie is over, I think you'll agree with me. It's definitely worth seeing.

There is some seriously enjoyable stuff here, especially when it comes to the style. It's a little hard to describe but it's very French. The performances are all very good, as are the supporting players. I enjoyed seeing Charles Dance again. He was a great screen presence for the type of material he was given. There is something very funny and sexy about the character he played, but he was a really nice guy. And the daughter was great. I was really taken back by the way she handled her character. All in all, it was an entertaining movie.

This is a true story about a very famous boxer in the 1900's named Eddie "The Eagle" Flagg. I really enjoyed the movie. It was fast paced, very funny and filled with many interesting facts. The acting was very well done and the actors were believable in their roles. This movie is a must see. If you want to see a fast paced, entertaining movie this is it.

I haven't been this excited about a sports film since The Players' Tribune. This was the story of Eddie Edwards, a young American athlete who was told he was not good enough to play the game he loves. The film starts out with Eddie taking his mom to an interview at the height of his career. The interviews are mainly with his coaches, family, and friends. When he is at home, he talks to his friends about how his career has changed, and the way he thinks about his future. When he is on the road, he talks to the people who represent the sports industry in his hometown. The way the film is edited is so natural and detailed that I was not prepared for it. It is extremely realistic. I can't think of any film that depicts the life of a professional athlete so well. I can't wait for the DVD to come out.

The heart of this movie is the relationship between Ryan and his mother. I don't think there was anything wrong with it except the fact that the relationship never really goes anywhere. The real drama is with Ryan's friends and family. The one who seems to be the most alienated is Kenny. And Ryan, the dad who loves the least. The movie does have some beautiful shots of the California coastline. But it could have been so much more. But if you're going to see this movie, I highly recommend you see it again.
