Critic Reviews of "The Worlds Fastest Indian"Chicago ReaderAugust 06, 2008
This compelling fact-based story is [Donaldson's] best effort in years.Time OutJune 24, 2006
It takes a while to adjust to this amiable film's languorous tempo but you might find it's worth the wait.Seattle TimesFebruary 03, 2006
For a film that's ultimately about speed, it could use a little more zip.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 03, 2006
The World's Fastest Indian might be the world's worst title for a charming, slice-of-life biopic starring Anthony Hopkins.Orlando SentinelFebruary 03, 2006
The World's Fastest Indian is an old-fashioned feel-good movie.Houston ChronicleFebruary 03, 2006
The film may be cutesy-poo for some tastes, and there isn't much nail-chewing suspense in Burt's pursuit or his lighthearted subjugation of everyone he meets. But man and "motor-sickle" sneaked up and beguiled me, so all I could do was hop on.EmanuelLevy.ComJuly 31, 2011
Anthony Hopkins gives an eccentric performance in his second film with Roger Donaldson.Common Sense MediaDecember 18, 2010
Hopkins' joyous romp is a little slow for kids.Suite101.comDecember 15, 2010
Ambushing audiences isn't easy for an actor like Anthony Hopkins, from whom we've come to expect shouting routines. But he propels this biopic past familiar fish-out-of-water beats with a vibrant, wily, unpredictable joie de vivre not seen since "Nixon."Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A sweet, heartbreaking, road trip film...rec.arts.movies.reviewsNovember 11, 2008
Movie does not try to turn elderly speedster Burt Munro into melodrama but simply allows his astounding achievements to speak for themselves.Film4August 06, 2008
An old-fashioned, consummate feelgood flick and a valedictory to eccentric, stubborn old coots everywhere.
