      Eddie the Eagle Reviews

      Viewers of Eddie the Eagle will anticipate every beat, not that its approach prevents the movie from being effective. Sports movies have a formula for a reason - it's often successful.

      What is most puzzling about 'Eddie the Eagle' is its bizarre commitment to the formula.

      Enthusiasm goes a long way in this sort of film and it would be very difficult not to get swept along in the avalanches of it you'll find here.

      The film may triumph in that its modest goals are achieved but the struggle to tell a truly interesting story devoid of manipulation was too much for director Dexter Fletcher.

      Few films are this delightful and positive - I challenge you not to get swept up in Eddie's story and root for him along the way.

      Overall, Eddie the Eagle is formulaic, heartfelt and full of feel-good vibes.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Nov 15, 2019

      Despite its flaws, Eddie the Eagle boasts a strong cast, good script and, like Eddie himself, a lot of heart. Watch it at least once. You won't regret it.

      This film isn't quite a medal winner -- but it's definitely a crowd-pleaser.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Aug 29, 2019

      The film could so easily have made Eddie a figure of fun. Instead it turns an underdog into a very British kind of hero.

      I found myself cheering for Eddie and his dogged optimism.

      "Eddie the Eagle" is uncomplicated by nature and is a feel-good, warm-your-heart kind of film that will have you rooting for Eddie by the end of it.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 5, 2019

      Much like the real Eddie Edwards, the film may not soar as high as loftier biopics, but it's a heartwarmer.

      There are no revolutionary changes made to the underdog formula, but the movie is special in that it celebrates the pride one finds in the simple act of participation.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10 | Feb 21, 2019

      It's a fun little dramedy that offers some laughs and some triumphs and some big sappy feelings, nothing more. And what's wrong with that?

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Feb 20, 2019

      It's fluff, but it's charming fluff that ultimately works well.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Jan 15, 2019

      The overkill indicates an awareness that none of these would-be messages ring true.
