    This is a tremendously uplifting movie! About a person, unwilling to accept that he is not good enough to be an Olympian! He takes on the sport of ski jumping, having never tried it before, to qualify for the Olympics. It is based on a true story, so anyone that remembers Eddie the Eagle from the Olympics, this movie displays the journey to the Olympics in such a perfect way. I would recommend this movie to ANYONE! It is for all ages, to show that never give up attitude, to show that losing is okay and not the end of the world, and if you do fail, get up and try again! Watch this movie, own this movie, and strive to live like Eddie the Eagle - never give up!

    Truly Inspiring

    A real life underdog story based on the inspiring true story, Eddie the Eagle will entertain the whole family. Taron Egerton (last seen in the spy thriller Kingsman) delivers a convincing portrayal of the lovable but athletically challenged Eddie who dreams of becoming an Olympian. Hugh Jackman gives star power support as an American coach who trains the determined Eddie. The movie is predictable, but heartwarming nonetheless and the synthesized soundtrack brings one into the era perfectly. Definitely worth owning!

    Heart Warming

    Eddie the Eagle is a great heart warming story the whole family can enjoy. All his life Eddie Edwards was told he was not good enough and did not have the right looks to make or be on the British Olympic team. Defying all the odds and obstacles, Eddie fights to earn his spot on the team with some help from a failed American Ski Jumper who lost his chance years before for gold. Eddie the Eagle will soar into your hearts and not leave a dry eye when he is finished. Totally recommended.

    Younger viewers may not remember Eddie the Eagle, but his participation in the Calgary Winter Olympics is portrayed in this film. Dramatic license aside, it is a heart tugging story that even Eddie himself enjoyed! You will too, if you enjoy underdog stories in the world of sports, even if all the facts are not exact.

    I wasn't too sure about this movie when I saw the previews but based on what friends told me and the fact that it is based on a true story I decided I had to see it. I am definitely glad I did. It has to be one of the most inspiring movies I've seen in a long time. If you think you can't do something or everyone tells you you can't, just watch this movie and you will be inspired to try whatever it is you choose to do.

    When my husband, son and I went to the movies and saw this, we weren't expecting much. But we are huge Wolverine fans and Hugh IS Wolverine, so we thought "What the Heck" The 3 of us left amazed and in love with this movie!!! So, so good. On the way home we were looking up facts about Eddie the Eagle's life and talked about it for quite awhile. Recommend for all, not just Wolverine fans.

    This movie makes you believe in miracle and it makes you feel good inside to see people to overcome there dreams when people around them tell them that there can do that. So this movie has a very positive story. And the story is that if you want to follow your dreams, don't let people stop you for that and keep on fighting for what you believe in your heart

    Missed this movie in the theaters, but was not disappointed. Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman have a chemistry on screen that you wouldn't think would work, but does so surprisingly well in this retelling of a true story of Eddie "The Eagle" and the road of perseverance he had to endure to accomplish his dream to become an Olympian.

    I didn't know what to think when I first saw the movie. I got it at the Redbox and loved it! I love that it's based off a true story and I love the message that it brings that you shouldn't ever give up on your passions or dreams and if you work hard enough, you can achieve them. I thought it was awesome.

    4K Ultra GOLD

    The HDR technology featured within this Fox 4K Ultra HD disc is what makes this sport movie of the British Olympic ski jumper a joy to watch in 4K. Nothing like seeing colors, brightness and contrast that no online streaming system can match. This is the only way to watch movies at home.

    I just bought this movie after watching the trailer just becos of Hugh Jackman. The transformation from KingsMan movie to this Taron Egerton did great job. Its not always about the winning/loosing its about the journey also matters. Just watch and have fun.

    Great movie, lots of humor, but the biggest surprise was the acting of Taron Egerton. He was okay in Kingsman, but never thought he could do much more than that type of role, boy was I wrong, he really transforms himself into Eddie and really brings the life to this film.

    This film was very enjoyable. It demonstrates the importance of perseverance when everyone tells you that your skills are limited. It's a great movie for the "I think I can...I think I can....I think I can..." needed to achieve greatness. This film is very inspirational.

    The title of the movie had me underestimate it from the beginning. I didn't know what to expect. But after watching this true "underdog" picture I found a new respect for dreamers!!! Great heartfelt movie. I'm glad I watched it at the movies and bought the Blu-ray.
