I have seen a ton of movies this year already, but Eddie the Eagle is one of the best of the year so far. Without spoiling too much, here are 5 reasons why Eddie the Eagle is phenomenal.
Also watch the trailer for Eddie the Eagle below before reading to understand what kind of movie this is.
Throughout the entire movie there is not even one moment where something is cheesy or too cliche. It feels almost as if it were a documentary with some added humor in it.
One pretty cool thing about this movie is the fact that it's about a real man and everything he goes through to get to the Olympics. Even though Hugh Jackman's character was fictional, the film was accurate when it came to the events.
Every actor who played a role had significant parts in the entire movie. If you saw a new character appear, said character would be consistent through the entire movie.
Watching the growth of Eddie and all the characters that are close to him really hit hard in this movie. Time and time again I wanted to just shout "You can do it" or "C'mon Eddie, be brave!"
5. Truly Motivational
You see a man start from the literal bottom and rise to the highest ski jumping slope made and succeed where everyone else thought he would fail. He never gave up hope and never listened when people told him he couldn't do it.
I made this article shorter on purpose because Eddie the Eagle isn't even out yet so I really don't want to spoil much of the plot, but trust me when I say this movie is so amazing. You will feel so inspired and feel a little warmth in your heart after watching this masterpiece.
