      The World's Fastest Indian Reviews

      Fun, straightforward, and enjoyable.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Nov 21, 2020

      It features the finest, and most unique, performance by Anthony Hopkins in years and will leave you smiling long after you leave the theatre.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/4.0 | Sep 27, 2020

      I had a time without watching an Anthony Hopkins movie as pleasant as 'The World's Fastest Indian ', by Australian director Roger Donaldson. His performance is the heart of the film. [Full review in Spanish]

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

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Jul 31, 2011

      Hopkins' joyous romp is a little slow for kids.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Dec 18, 2010

      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...

      Full Review | Apr 29, 2009

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

      Full Review | Nov 11, 2008

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

      Full Review | Aug 6, 2008

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

      Full Review | Aug 6, 2008

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | May 2, 2007

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jan 27, 2007

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

      Full Review | Nov 4, 2006

      Sweet but syrupy and formulaic.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Jul 24, 2006

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

      Full Review | Jun 24, 2006

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

      Full Review | Apr 7, 2006

      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.'

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Apr 4, 2006

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Apr 1, 2006

      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.

      Full Review | Mar 31, 2006

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

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
