I saw 'The World's Fastest Indian' at the local cinema in Berkhamsted, Herts. Without a doubt it was the best film I have seen for twenty five years. It made me laugh, sit on the edge of my seat, and get very emotionally involved.

For once the Americans were not the stars and history was not being rewritten. Anthony Hopkins plays the part of a real man who had great asperations and an almost niave belief in the goodness of people, an attitude which helped him to achieve his goal after a series of setbacks that would have daunted most folk.

In a word, brilliant. I can't wait to see it again on DVD.

I was lucky enough to see this film at the one cinema in the country that showed it. I couldn't believe that such a family friendly and feel good film was given the shoulder by the distributors. It cost $25m to make so I cannot imagine why there was no general release for it. Certainly the audience I was with REALLY enjoyed it. Hopefully this DVD will find the audience it deserves.

There are many reasons why this film is great. Firstly, the "true" story of Kiwi Burt Monro - one of life's innocents, dropping all and heading off to the Salt Lake flats, is really an inspiring and moving one. I suspect that the incidents that happened on his journey have been dreamt up for the film, but we can forgive them for it. As a racer myself, I recognised the atmosphere there is at an event, with all the signing on, scruitineering, the adrenalin, the people etc.

Secondly, the script is very good. Burt Monro has some wonderful one liners, and the many characters that greet him on his long journey are interesting and show us more about Monro's character each time. This is the kind of film where you know the ending, but it's the journey and the small details that make it a delight.

Thirdly, the locations are awesome. I love road movies that travel the beautiful locations of America, and here you get the fantastic vistas, but of course with Burt pounding through them on his motorbike. The direction and the music, the thematic material and the shot in the arm the film gives you is really something - and there's one final element to congratulate for it...

Anthony Hopkins. Since his big Hollywood break Hopkins was on a roll. Then he started drifting towards the typical Hollywood roles that didn't suit his talents.

Format: DVD
I first heard about this film from some biker friends and decided to see what the fuss was about. I was slightly confused at first at who the "indian" was but soon discovered it was the motorbike belonging to Burt Munro (Hopkins). From then on i was captured by this old gentlemans charisma and excentricity. The film was directed by a man who knew Burt Munro personnally and has given Munro an epitaph to be proud of. Hopkins plays Munro so well that by the end of the film you will believe that you know Burt intimatly. This quirky old gent had a dream to see how fast his "indian scout" motorbike would go, not to brake records not to race but simply a passion. The only place on earth Burt can achieve his dream is to take himself and the "indian" on a trip half way round the world to Utah salt flats in america for speed week to time his bike. His trip is not lavished up by big budget stunts but simply tells his story to reach his dream. Everyone he touches he befriends by being himself and honest and by the end of the film i was willing him on. Sadly only once in a while do films like this come along, but with such a small budget by todays terms (35 mil) this film was not shown in too many cinemas world wide, but i urge you if you love true storys and enjoy hopkins at his best you cannot go much wrong to watch this "indian" journey of life.

Format: DVD
Sometimes dvd's arrive and you wonder 'why did I put this on my list?' This is a case in point. Particularly when I discovered it involved motorbikes. Or one motorbike in particular. But, having rented it I decided to watch it.

Am I glad I did. This is a real gem. The story of Burt Munro and his dream to time trial his old bike on the Utah salt flats.

What makes the story, is the charm of old Burt (Anthony Hopkins) and the relationships he forges on the way to making his dream come true.

What I would call a real old fashioned type of movie.

Kept my two teenagers captivated for it's duration, and my daughter runs a mile at car or bike programmes on the tv.

Take a chance and watch this. You'll not regret it.

A wonderful tale - and basically a true story - of a man's quest to become the fastest chap on two wheels and his adventure achieving that.

A fine cast throughout but Hopkins steals the film. I have never seen him perform better than this: superb acting and great direction make this a very moving film - it had me in tears anyway.

Buy it and watch it. Then buy one for christmas for all your friends.

I read that Hopkins considers this his finest film, and it is hard to disagree. It is a feelgood movie of the old-fashioned school, where the characters and the story are allowed to develop slowly and simply. I was enchanted.
