Eddie the Eagle is a less than two hours movie that tells the story about a British skier who in 1988 became the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping. The movie's main themes are about determination and how coming in first place is not the only thing that matters. Let's take a look at the two main performances.
Taron Egerton- Eddie Edwards
Taron Egerton absolutely killed this performance. He played the very awkward Eddie perfectly. He was funny, clumsy and constantly determined to take on the next challenge. He made the audience feel whatever he was feeling, whether it was pain, joy, sadness, or anger.
Hugh Jackman- Bronson Peary
Hugh Jackman did what he does in most of his movies. He played an alcoholic that has zero discipline. Sounds like Wolverine, right? Hugh Jackman had a very satisfactory performance that just kept the story doing. Nothing more, nothing less.
Eddie the Eagle is a short heartfelt movie that shows that first place doesn't mean everything. Everyone does a good job, but Taron Egerton blows it out of the park.
