This compelling fact-based story is [Donaldson's] best effort in years.
It creaks and splutters all the way, but Hopkins' charm keeps it chugging along steadily.
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.
For a film that's ultimately about speed, it could use a little more zip.
The World's Fastest Indian might be the world's worst title for a charming, slice-of-life biopic starring Anthony Hopkins.
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."
A sweet, heartbreaking, road trip film...
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.
took a look at this film with a slightly wary eye, the title being rather ambiguous and misleading initially. I nearly passed it by to watch one of the many screener DVD's I had to view. for possible inclusion in the BAFTA awards. I presumed it was about a runner or maybe an Indian astronaut, possibly. I had no idea initially the "Indian" referred to a great American motorcycle,rather than a particular type of human.I am so glad I wasn't thrown by the title, and started watching. There unfolded a most delightful story about Bert, an instantly rather charming eccentric old character (superbly played by Anthony Hopkins), who built an old 1920's motorcycle in his garden shed. He then attempts to break the world-land speed record on a machine designed to originally travel about 90mph. The plot develops into a most charming and beautiful story of Bert's determination to get to the race event and the journey is as much of the story as the event itself. Obviously I shall not divulge the result or the events that happen, suffice it to say that Bert becomes an instantly likable character by everyone he meets. Bert's charm shines through and he takes everyone he meets at face value and welcomes all with a smile and a shake of the hand. He meets various "characters" along the way who he befriends like long-lost friends,which is a fresh in these days of prejudice and alienation. This was a very innocent time in 1967 for a New Zealander going to America, and there is one of the films most delightful and charming moments when Bert realises all is not quite what it seems when he meets one certain character......... MAKE SURE YOU SEE THIS FILM, it will have you laughing, crying and will uplift you, which is quite uncommon in these days in the movies of blood, killing, violence and savagery. I would be very surprised if Anthony is not at least nominated for his starring role as Bert. Lovely film which needs a different title to me, but then again "it does what it says on the tin", as they say. Go and see it. Great
The World's Fastest Indian is yet another well done feel good movie. The film tells the story of Burt Munro who seeked to break a land speed record on his 1920 Indian Scout. A film that focuses on one mans determination to accomplish his goal, The World's Fastest Indian is yet another terrific film from talented director Roger Donaldson (Thirteen Days), this is a film about Munro's trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats to break the record he so desired. Along the way, he befriends many people, and despite the fact that odds are against him, he persevere's and ultimately achieves his goal. Anthony Hopkins gives a great performance as Burt Munro. This is an incredible story of determination and perseverance. Over the course of late 60's till his death, he set many land speed records on his Indian Scout motorcycle. Roger Donaldson makes yet another terrific film, and with Anthony Hopkins on board, The World's Fastest Indian is a superb achievement. Hopkins delivers one of his best performances since he played Hannibal Lector in Silence Of The Lambs. The film is amusing, comical and sometimes sad, but it never feels like Burt Munro will fail. Despite a bit of misfortune, he manages to keep his head high, and succeed in setting his record. The World's Fastest Indian is a terrific film with a great story and acting. This is one of Roger Donaldson's finest films, and he always manages to make terrific films with an interesting story. This yet another great film with a story that will inspire the believers and dreamers ever. A very entertaining film with a great cast, make The World's Fastest Indian a film definitely worth watching. Another great film for Anthony Hopkins.
The world's fastest Indian is a bit dull for most of the film, but when it reaches it's great lines and high points it is brilliant. This film grabbed me from the start even by being very slow! I love The World's Fastest Indian, but throughout the film they could have had a bit more excitement to make it more fun. However, that wasn't the case, and I still love this film!
Decent, but a bit too long and slow-paced for my taste. Great acting as always by Anthony Hopkins though.
