Egerton plays Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself–even as an entire nation was counting him out.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Taron Egerton reproduces Eddie's offbeat charm, turning him into an Asperger's afflicted champion of the undertrodden. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Feb 27, 2016

Rotten: Though it aims for heroism, Edwards' story doesn't have a dramatic enough arc to be truly inspirational. It's not about winning, it's an ode to participation, which isn't enough for it to get off the ground. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Feb 26, 2016

Fresh: It is a rare biopic of any kind, let alone a sports bio, that merely celebrates participation. It's that novelty that makes this simple comedy shine. – Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail, Feb 26, 2016

Fresh: Cheesy and predictable in the extreme, what matters is that it works...it's the good old British pluck in Eddie's DNA that really sells the film, making it stand out as a true hero narrative in a movie market choking with super-powered comic book ones. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, May 14, 2016
