Eddie the Eagle

From childhood, Eddie Edwards dreamed of the Olympics. The clumsy boy with glasses tried to do all kinds of sports, which could lead him to the Olympics, but failure almost killed the belief in the impossible, and he resigned, decided to continue the family business and become a plasterer. Just at that moment Eddie saw a ski slope and decided in that whatever was to go to the Winter Olympic games. A little spent itself, on skis, he discovers that the UK has for several decades there was no jumping on the ski jumping. Determined Eddie goes on the famous training base in Germany.

Picture of the eccentric skier-trampolinist Eddie Edwards well received by critics and ordinary viewers, and perhaps I liked it, but there are serious comments.

More importantly, perhaps, it is that the movie was "half-hearted" — like and not the classic picture of sporting spirit, victories in that would any was and things, but and a family movie is not called. In General, do not lack of uniqueness, I think it was worth much more time to devote to it sports Paphos, in the best sense of the word — more action, more atmosphere, competition and the power of the spirit to a particular individual.

The result is that Eddie Edwards such a childish guy (probably suffering from slight mental disabilities, it and not a word about neither one of characters are not say), who got it in his head to become an Olympian skier from England, not matter complete lack of skills. From the fan directly to the level of the Olympic games 1 year you?

The second serious drawback is the numerous worn-out templates, and is with that he officially Edwards said that the film 90% fiction. I'm sorry, but if the writers and Director decided to leave in free swimming, then it was impossible to beat a more interesting story? Because we see the classic "loser-drunk-last-great-jumper-nerealizovannoe-your-potential" and now the good will of trainer Eddie, the Eddie, which, for example, being 100% sober, thanks to the teasing of colleagues managed before the competition to get drunk in trash used etc. right in excess in many films, the original at least implemented, if I decided nothing to come up with.

The acting is decent, but could be better. Edgerton well done, some claim, and here Bronson Peary in the performance of Jackman's marriage suffers charisma and the virility — no, he doesn't mater drunkard who can fight anyone and which people are trying to avoid — it is the same infantile as and Eddie, just a bit more realistic and sees the peace and in my life have seen a lot. Especially awkward is the looks given in what kind of physical shape is Hugh and some tough guys he plays to the film. Liked the secondary characters — parents of Edward, Peter — tender-hearted hostess of the eatery next to the training base, Warren sharp in performed by Christopher Walken — same great skier, a great coach more times Bronson Piri. And appears that 3 minutes of screen time that got Walken in the charisma went around the timing pattern used by Jackman. Not been accustomed to see that.

In conclusion, picture is good, worth watching, but sufficiently predictable and cloying.

Michael Thomas Edwards was born 5. December, 1963 in Cheltenham. Eddie with the childhood dream to defend the colours of his native country in the Olympics. Despite the problems with the vision, he did attempts to get to the games. The first step was the participation in qualification in UK team the downhill. To his deep regret, there it is not included. However, Michael Thomas Edwards just not going to give up has been...

Something you ever read in biographies of great athletes who, despite the difficulties on the way, reached my goal and has gained world-wide fame. But the story of the Edwards is very different. It is not a prize-winner of Olympic games, not a great athlete Yes, and all absolutely ordinary people. The story of Eddie Edwards — this is the way many of the Olympians from the inside out. Not once team the downhill, he decided to start jumping jump prepare the winter Olympics for the year (it is worth noting that he became the first British athlete in this sport who took part in the Olympics). Eddie Edwards, though set the national record of Britain in a jumping the springboard, but ranked last due to the critical little result. Thomas Edwards — loser, constantly occupying the last place. Obviously, this unusual in any sense of the story was to attract the interest of filmmakers.

However, the "Eddie eagle" and not trying to adhere to historical accuracy. Highlights from the life of the British athlete sometimes exaggerated, and sometimes is changed to recognition. But the General concept "man was to and reached it" all well preserved. The words "based on real events" important to the viewer's perception, because sometimes the movie seems like a fairy tale. Although it is — ","Eddie "the eagle"" is not other than new one you believe big hunting. The characters do not taken from air, they exist our world. The permanent loser, rushing for your goal here is not perceived as a scenario a cliche, because we see in the character is above all a real person, and in some moments you can see and yourself this way. Skier, and now drinking forever trainer Eddie — not a walking stereotype of the old athlete. This hero you survive rejoice. The movie lives and conveys emotions to the viewer.

The main source of all emotions — Eddie Edwards. Its purpose will touch even the most sophisticated audience. The way prescribed is, even in too naive style. But to give thanks it is necessary to Taranu Edgerton: in spite of external dissimilarity, the young British actor has made every effort so that people can see on the screen only silly Edwards. Of the characteristic features of the game include forward jaw (in life but the bite is normal), and also the manner of conversation and conduct, adopted at this Thomas Edwards. Character-the antithesis of Eddie is the coach. It is an irresponsible athlete, which was talent it "wasted", and Edwards incompetent, all the forces trying to "own the moment". Trainer — is what is getting people who have missed out on his dream of the hand — Eddie who gets the dream through the bruises, broken bones and other injuries. The benefit of Jackman as possible with a vengeance. However, the chemistry on screen is felt, because of what the duet does not seem to be a couple of "freaks" who decided in 1 year prepare the Olympic games.

Supported by all this friendly atmosphere. Matthew Margeson created really gentle soundtrack to which has no space or fake in naigranno pathos. Great cameraman Richmand not only shows the viewer the beauty of nature, but and his work emphasizes the entire produced the danger of the Olympic games. Perhaps you will notice sagging chromakey, but soon absolutely will lose significance. The center will be exactly heroes, but not the beautiful scenery and backgrounds. On the foreground there will be people who defy fate.

For the year this man decided to learn a new and also a dangerous craft to become an Olympian. He fell, broken jaw, arms, legs, suffered ridicule because of his bizarre appearance and habits, but all the time got up and went on. It is not just another motivational movie whose purpose is just to drive to you the truth — "try it, go ahead and everything will be fine". No no no, "Eddie "the eagle""" — more world movie. Not another clichéd hack kicks from you tear an unexpected first place loser. The cliché here, of course, missing, but they will prevent the view. History does not about the triumph. This film about the value of this great sport. When nobody believe there is only one chance to prove to people how much they were wrong. Only there, on the huge site, in front of all the people you to give full — is the only victory condition. Yes what is winning? Is the rewards of different quality? Victory — this is when you do everything your best to jump over your head.

"Eddy eagle""" could how to piss off many fans of the movie, and them to like me. All case in that will in the world of dreams come true. The world where the words of the father "You do not the Olympian" make the jump all further and dangerous and to refute this it is necessary to make only one push from side slides. Where, initially, all against you, but then together we cheer for any your result, because the disbelief was replaced by the phrase " You Can!". For someone baby and hackneyed to holes, for someone a discovery which changed the attitude to the sport. The tape is not is a favorite in any race for the film awards. She is guided by the same the rules that should guide athletes — "the Important thing is not win a part. The main thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle." And after watching the film, this statement is not seem to be some typical excuse for a loser, because you are likely to look at the sport differently.

I was interested in the story of an athlete who decided in that may not stop in front of the intended target.

Eddie Edwards with childhood asserted that sport for him. But he continued to flatter themselves with illusions this issue and do not leave attempts to achieve certain achievements to participate in the Olympic games.

Didn't think the film will be so interesting and intriguing. The plot is submitted and implemented more than adequately, I have not experienced boredom at the time of viewing, and watched with interest for what is happening. The acting I also want to note the maximum score. Of Taron Edgerton to was known to me only the film "Kingsman. The secret service," and in "Eddie the eagle" he has recreated a completely different way, is a passing facial expressions and the behavior of the real prototype. Execution of this role Edgerton had interested me, and I will try not to miss the movies with his participation, so as an actor he is really talented. It partner mentor the film Hugh Jackman (franchise "X-Men", "van Helsing") in any views not need, here he is brilliantly played their part. Any new heights, he for not have opened, have it was the role and bigger. For the main character is experiencing on the duration of the film, his final exit in conjunction with the camera work and the acting of the two main characters in the movie makes the experience almost not to tears. I I was on the protagonist of experienced almost the feeling that he himself in my heart I was happy for him was proud of. Sincerely, as it showed the hero of Hugh Jackman.

Can't ignore the location, which competitions were held and training and a costume that was worn by athletes. Design mountains beautifully dizzy, the jumping is also perfectly executed, but here special thanks to the cameraman. In viewing the whole movie I times celebrated his treasure film in the picture are really gorgeous camera types.

The film motivates that never give up necessary. If a person has a certain attraction to one or otherwise, it is necessary to develop with the application of a certain amount of efforts it will be possible to achieve good results. I think "Eddie "the eagle" to see everyone.
