Anthony Hopkins gives an eccentric performance in his second film with Roger Donaldson.

Hopkins' joyous romp is a little slow for kids.

Ambushing audiences isn't easy for an actor like Anthony Hopkins, from whom we've come to expect shouting routines. But he propels this biopic past familiar fish-out-of-water beats with a vibrant, wily, unpredictable joie de vivre not seen since "Nixon."

Movie does not try to turn elderly speedster Burt Munro into melodrama but simply allows his astounding achievements to speak for themselves.

An old-fashioned, consummate feelgood flick and a valedictory to eccentric, stubborn old coots everywhere.

This compelling fact-based story is [Donaldson's] best effort in years.

It's hard not to like Hopkins' Burt Munro, which means it's hard not to like The World's Fastest Indian.

It creaks and splutters all the way, but Hopkins' charm keeps it chugging along steadily.

This codger has a libido, which distinguishes him from most of the seniors in the movies.

Sweet but syrupy and formulaic.

It takes a while to adjust to this amiable film's languorous tempo but you might find it's worth the wait.

The film is itself an offering to the god of speed, but much more besides.

Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

Hopkins presides as such an engaging old coot, it seems criminal to point out flaws in the film -- which rarely tries to be more than a Kiwi version of 'The Straight Story.'

A wonderfully uplifting and charming biopic that's sure to win over all but the most mean-spirited. And the motorbike races really rocket, too.

A spellbinding road movie about a man with a dream, The World's Fastest Indian tells not only a true story but introduces us to a priceless original.

Hopkins makes a thoroughly convincing argument that the need for speed doesn't necessarily fade away in the so-called twilight years.

Like old Burt Munro from down under, the movie's a charmer.

The World's Fastest Indian isn't so much a story about breaking records and gauging speed as it is about the kindness of strangers and the ultimate road trip.
