A really inspiring movie that shows it doesn't matter how young or old you are, if you set goals and have a dream, you can achieve that no matter what the circumstances. Would highly recommend this movie to anyone.
Do I really need to say anything? Mind you, even at a sweet old age one does not have to give up life and act old when one has the passion to live it! Awesome inspirational movie with a New Zealand... Read more twist. If he can do it so can we if we just have faith and lady luck on our side.
My family knew him well and it was wonderful to see his story become so big. The likeness to his shed and they things he did at home were spot on to the reality of Bob. The story is absolutely gripping... Read more and holds your attension and heart the entire way.
Believe the hype - this movie is brilliant! Its very funny, very kiwiana, and the story itself is so inspiring! When it ended both my boyfriend and I had tears in our eyes! Burt Munroe is a true... Read more kiwi hero and if I hadn't watched this I would never have known to what extent he was! Just goes to show that if you want something bad enough then it really is possible!
I will be very surprised if this movie does not become a classic. Excellent plot, Brilliant acting, and fast motorcycles. I laughed I cried, husband laughed at me while I yelled at the TV. Very engrossing... Read more movie. Really well made and produced. Highly recommended.

Fanatstic film about... Read more a real No8 wire Kiwi taking it to the rest of the world, casual as, but using initiative, determination, and a likable personality to overcome all problems and set the record. Anthony Hopkins does a master act as real kiwi bloke, awesome
Being an American living in New Zealand, I absolutely loved this movie. Wasn't quite sure about it when my hubby said he wanted to see it, but I was certainly not disappointed. Anthony Hopkins was... Read more amazing in this role. Great story line and some humorous parts as well. We could so relate to some of the things that he encountered when he arrived in America. Would definitely recommend. Great for kids as well.
Fabulously filmed story that New Zealanders' in particular will appreciate - it's a great testimony to our No. 8 wire kiwi ingenuity and 'she'll be right' philosophy . Anthony Hopkins does a stand-out... Read more job of portaying an aging 'Kiwi bloke' - the sort of bloke that has helped make this country what it is today. I was glued, a great feel-good movie for all ages, not to be missed.
What an excellent film which has been very well made, seemingly accurate and good acting throughout. Anthony Hopkins fits the part well as Burt Munro and the film never lets up on the true story. It... Read more was so good I would see it again in the future. 5 stars.
