New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie In The Works

Movie Review: #EddieTheEagle A True Underdog Story

A true underdog story

RAMA is back with another review.

In the same spirit as “Rocky," “Rudy,” and a million other underdog sports movies out there, EDDIE THE EAGLE will have you believe the impossible. One of the most inspiring, crowd-pleasing films you’ll see this year.
span class="fullpost">
EDDIE THE EAGLE is about Michel Edwards (Taron Egerton) who only wanted one thing and that was to be an Olympian. He signed up for British ski-jumping on the only resource he had, believing in himself. His coach (Hugh Jackman) doubted him, the whole nation doubted him, but at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, Eddie showed them that he too could make history.

I didn’t really have recollection of the 1988 Olympics, because the first Olympics I remember watching was the one in 1992. But I had heard about the Jamaican bobsled team, this story of Eddie the Eagle however wasn’t on my radar. Took them long enough but I’m glad this movie finally gets made, because from time to time, our young generation, especially the ones who may struggle through insecurity, or the world telling them that they’ll never amount to anything more, needs stories like Eddie The Eagle.

It’s very much your textbook underdog sports movie, there are moments of giving up, moments of failures, moments of clarity, all the way to the big speeches about having heart is more important than winning, you know, the whole nine yards. The coach-trainee dynamic of Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton definitely reminds you of the relationship between Mickey and Rocky Balboa. Any dramatization by screenwriter Sean Macaulay and Simon Kelton and director Dexter Fletcher to make things feel more grand cinematic successfully adds to this already incredible true story. What a wonderful performance by rising star Taron Egerton, he’s actually a handsome fellow but he went all out to make himself look convincing as a nerd who may be in way over his head. EDDIE THE EAGLE is for those of us who feel like we’re stuck, thinking this is all there is to life. Purpose doesn’t just happen, we have to pursue it, we have to claim it, we have to give it a shot, in hopes that we’ll eventually fly... like an eagle.
