Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The World's Fastest Indian might be the world's worst title for a charming, slice-of-life biopic starring Anthony Hopkins. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: History dictates that you know how the story ends. Still, the heart beats no less fast when you watch Munro's Indian rocketing across those salt flats. You can see how it might be enough to justify a journey halfway around the world. – Janice Page, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

Fresh: This compelling fact-based story is [Donaldson's] best effort in years. – Joshua Katzman, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Judging by the movie, you might admire Munro's achievement but probably wouldn't have wanted him for a neighbor. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Best movie in a long time

Loved it!!!

Hidden gem

I'm pretty sure this is one of Anthony Hopkins least known movies. It tells a great story and tells it quite well. A hidden gem if you are looking for one of those movies that just puts you in. Good place

A sure pleaser for motorcycle fans

Cycle riding is a great joy shared by a diverse slice of humanity, from young to old, inexperienced to experienced, male and female alike.

What I liked about this film was the nostalgia. An old Indian. I knew them in the 50's and 60's, but never had the money to get one. Then, along comes this story that is good at fulfilling the fantasy and dreams of an old man and the innocent respect and love of a young boy.

It is a perfect package, believable in every aspect. Anthony Hopkins, a great actor by any standard, was at his best in this movie. The writer of the screenplay cast him perfectly. And, his interaction with the other people he met on his way to Bonneville was the best.

This is a very fine, enjoyable movie, especially if you think us rough looking' bikers have no sentimentality and goodness.
