Product Overview

Academy Award Winner Anthony Hopkins stars as Burt Munro, a man who never let the dreams of youth fade.

In the late 1960's, after a lifetime of perfecting his classic Indian motorcycle, Burt sets off from the bottom of the world, Invercargill, New Zealand, to clock his bike at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. With all odds against him, Burt puts his irrepressible kiwi spirit to the test, braving the new world on a shoestring budget. Burt's quest culminates in an unlikely conclusion and remains legendary within the motorcycle community to this day.

Review Although some aspects of the movie work better than others, the production as a whole leaves the viewer enveloped in a warm afterglow. And the steady, reassuring presence of Anthony Hopkins, who has disappeared beneath the skin of his character, holds things together during the weaker moments...If you take a step back and look at The World's Fastest Indian, it's about a man's spiritual journey...Burt's unassuming personality wins people over with ease - both on-screen characters and audience members. The smile on my face at the end of the movie allowed me to forgive its uneven tone and sloppiness with dates. The World's Fastest Indian does what it sets out to do: educates about a mostly unknown historical figure (without doctoring the facts too much), entertains, and uplifts.

Review "The World's Fastest Indian" is a movie about an old coot and his motorcycle, yes, but it is also about a kind of heroism that has gone out of style. Burt Munro is a codger in his 60s who lives in Invercargill, New Zealand, takes nitro pills for his heart condition, and has spent years tinkering with a 1920 Indian motorcycle. His neighbors wish he would take a break once in a while to mow the grass...Burt Munro was a real man, and the film is based on fact. Roger Donaldson, the movie's writer and director, grew up in New Zealand, where Munro was a folk hero. He wrote the first draft of this script in 1979, after a 1971 documentary, and then life took him to Hollywood and to big-budget thrillers like "No Way Out," and now at last he has returned to tell the story of a hero of his youth.

Quotes
Ken Fox, TV Guide Rarely do movies portray the elderly with such admiration and respect.
Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times A heck of a ride.
Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune Fast, funny, big-hearted.
Pete Hammond, Maxim A wonderful...feel-good movie. Will have you standing up and cheering.
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer ...a low-key, subtly inspirational drama that builds its charm slowly but surely.
