Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael "Eddie" Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself - even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. From producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.
I loved this movie. It was so good. I loved that no matter how hard he tried he never gave up even when he crashed and broke his neck. I wasn't a big fan of how everyone was trying to crush his dreams.Since he was little he wanted to be in the Olympics and after all that practice he got to do it. I really disliked the guy who was in charge of the British Olympic team because he was so rude and didn't give Eddie the chance to try. He told him that he would never be an Olympian. He also changed the rules on Eddie when they haven't been changed in so many years. It was forty something feet to qualify and they changed it to sixty feet to qualify. I also didn't like that his dad wasn't very supportive of his dream. I think the best was that the Norwegians,his family, and his coach were all cheering for him at the 90m jump. I liked that Peary showed up to train him and teach him to land. I loved that Peary's coach apologized for underestimating him. It is was really good and this proves you can do anything if you put your mind to it and are really committed to doing it. I really loved that everyone back home was cheering for him too.
