Reviews:
"The film's cute flourishes and gamely broad performances from Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman could make it a sentimental success for family audiences." - 01/29/2016 Variety


"Matthew Margeson's synth-heavy score apes 1988 perfectly well, and the gravity-defying action gives this pic a slight thrill-ride edge over COOL RUNNINGS, which was based on another unlikely story from the 1988 Winter Games and was a clear inspiration here..." - 01/27/2016 Hollywood Reporter


4 stars out of 5 -- "Taron Egerton is charm personified as Eddie. He doesn’t caricature his eccentricities and keeps a glint of optimism even as the obstacles look insurmountable. Jackman makes a great foil..." - 01/29/2016 Empire


"All of it should serve as ironic comfort food for people raised on ’80s sports movies..." - 02/25/2016 A.V. Club


"Who doesn't love an underdog sports story? That's especially true when it's one as diverting and big-hearted as EDDIE THE EAGLE, the ebullient tale of Britain's wildly unlikely, first-ever Winter Olympics ski jumper..." - 02/25/2016 Los Angeles Times


"Taron Egerton gives a winning performance as one Michael “Eddie” Edwards..." - 02/25/2016 Chicago Sun-Times


"The infectious EDDIE THE EAGLE succeeds by mining both aspects of Edwards’s story with an equally deft touch." - 02/25/2016 Boston Globe


4 stars out of 5 -- "Dexter Fletcher’s semi-biopic dramedy is likely to be the most purely uplifting film of the year." - 03/24/2016 Total Film


3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] morale-boosting initiative, but briskly jolly, and given a dash of class by Jim Broadbent, Christopher Walken and a wonderfully unctuous Tim McInnerny." - 04/03/2016 The Guardian
