World’s Fastest Indian

Critics and moviegoers alike are saying nice things about “The World’s Fastest Indian,” which chronicles a New Zealand motorcycle enthusiast’s journey to Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats, where he sets a land speed record that has never been broken. Here are a couple comments:

Earth’s Biggest Movie Database: “Utilizing striking sun-drenched race visuals for the finale at Bonneville, Donaldson creates a pulse-quickening portrait of speed and the chaos of chasing velocity. It's also in the final moments that the filmmaker attempts to avoid yet again the expectations and fears of the audience, and climaxes the picture on sweetly satisfying note. "The World's Fastest Indian" (an awful title, I know) might not jump out as the obvious movie-going choice, but with so much heart and charm on display, it's worth the time.”

Cincinnati Community Press: "The World's Fastest Indian" is a pretty predictable film about an extraordinary real life event which becomes a much better movie because of its star -- Sir Anthony Hopkins.”
