Mini Review - Eddie The Eagle

Eddie The Eagle (out Apr 21) is based on the true story of Michael Edwards, a British ski jumper who became the first to represent his country at the 1988 Winter Olympics. The writers have tried to craft the ultimate crowd-pleaser but they’ve got a few steps too far. Some parts feel unbalanced and don’t ring true. Stars Taron Edgerton and Hugh Jackman are both good. Grade: B-.
