Movie review - Eddie the Eagle (2016)

Eddie the Eagle (2016) / biographical sports, drama, comedy

Directed by Dexter Fletcher
Produced by Adam Bohling, David Reid, Rupert Maconick, Valerie Van Galder, Matthew Vaughn
Written by Sean Macaulay and Simon Kelton
Starring: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Iris Berben

Feel-good biography.

This is a solid underdog sports story with a nice touch of humor. Can't disguise with the heart warming sweetness of the film but it has many unnecessary cliches. Taron Egerton gave a knock out performance once again and Hugh Jackman is always cool as a bad ass. The movie is exactly as expected: satisfying enjoyable flick. 3/5
