If you like motorcycles, wrenching and racing, you’ll probably like this movie. It’s the life story of New Zealander Burt Munro, who spent years rebuilding a 1920 Indian motorcycle to help him set the land-speed world record at Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats in 1967.
The movie is nicely done, good quality video and audio with very good clean and calm cinematographics (much unlike you see nowadays). It’s really a feel-good movie and makes you want Burt to succeed, even if you know that Burt really did so in real life. Anthony Hopkins really plays a very fine Burt Munro, and the producers have gone great lengths to make everything look like the real Burt Munro (the real story). The movie is a “bit besides the truth” every now and then, but not much and only to keep the story interesting.
Very nicely done, and a must see in my book.
