Movie Review: The World's Fastest Indian

Saturday, April 29, 2006
Last night at The Mission I saw The World's Fastest Indian, which is dramatized tale of New Zealander Burt Munro's legendary trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats on his 1929 Indian Scout motorcycle.

The movie was a true delight to watch. Filled with small bits of humor, the story flowed easily onto the screen and the characters were a pleasure to be around. My one objection to the movie was simply that Anthony Hopkins was shown sleeping night after night in his car, yet he always seemed to be well made-up and no one complained about the smell. That aside, the best line from the movie was: "Dirty old men need love, too!"

It's no secret that I enjoy motorcycles, and the scenes of his Indian motorcycle screaming along the beach or the salt flats was a blast to watch. It's a fun flick for just about anyone interested in bikes or New Zealand.

Final Word on The World's Fastest Indian: Very worth renting or seeing in a second-run theater.
