    I bought this movie because of who was in it and for how much I loved Cool Runnings, this is such a good feel good movie. I had a smile on my face the entire time and loved the characters. The music was also good and made you feel like you were in the 80's. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to smile and feel good watching a movie

    Fun Feel Good Movie

    This is a fun movie. It was 'inspired by actual events' , the actual story of Eddie the Eagle is quite different than the portrayal in the movie. The actor playing Eddie does a terrific job, and Hugh Jackman is Hugh Jackman. It's well paced, not too long, and you feel like cheering at the end. Great family feel good movie.

    this is a feel good melodrama based on sports. When a young rising Olympian Eddie who dreams of nothing else but being an Olympian is being told his whole life he isn't good enough, he meets a trusty companion to help him triumph his goals. And prove everybody wrong! A Blindside on ski's if you will.

    Fascinating story of one of the more unlikely Olympic champions in recent memory. The film is at least fast-paced and often humorous, but its emotions seem overly calculated virtually every step of the way. Technical merits are strong and the supplementary package quite good

    There is nothing groundbreaking here, just a fun big-hearted underdog story. Would be a great family movie night selection. Egerton and Jackman have a great chemistry, and really help carry the film to the finish line.

    This is an inspiring true story. There are a couple of parts that I think could have been omitted in order to make it more suitable for younger ages, but overall it's a good movie for families with young adults.

    I hadn't even heard of this movie, but when I found out about it, I did some research on the character on which it's based. Really great story and I thought the film did a pretty great job of representing it.

    Eddie the eagle was a unbelievable man when he made up his mind to do a very dangerous ski jump no caution or risk of injury could stop him. His goal was to be a Olympian and to fly like a bird.

    It was funny and the 2 main actors Hugh Jackman and Taron Edgerton were very good. Also had a good message of overcoming challenges and you can do anything you set your mind to.

    Based on the true story of a legend whose will to succeed and fulfil his dreams never subsides. Even when all around him told him he couldn't do it, he proved them all wrong.

    For what ever reason this Olympic athlete was forgotten, he is alive and well in this movie, and his story is finally told, with entertaining results. Worth a look.

    The movie itself was a nice feel good story although it took quite a few liberties with the actual events. The 4K transfer was only so so. Overall I recommend
