I saw “Eddie the Eagle” a few weeks ago and it was amazing. Taron Egerton is the actor that plays Eddie and he is phenomenal. Eddie was not very good at sports as a young boy because he had problems with his legs and had to wear braces. He could not run or do sports. Once he was older, he tried again to play sports and found he was great at ski jumping. Ski jumping is when you go down a steep ramp and jump straight into the air as high as you can. Eddie practiced a lot for a few years until he felt he was ready for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada. Eddie competed in the Olympics not only to win but also to prove that he was a great athlete. In my opinion, “Eddie the Eagle” was an exciting and heartfelt movie. Not only would I see it again, I would highly recommend it to all.
