This is the simple story of Burt Munro from New Zealand who broke the land speed record at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats in the 70's. The retro look of the movie is pretty cool to see; especially when Munro comes to the US. Sir Anthony Hopkins does a great job as the old man persuing a dream to race his motorceecle. There are some interesting charecters in this movie. The little boy who likes the old man. The tough biker who, in the end, helps out the old man. The cross dresser who befriends the old man. I like the line when in his encouters with "yankees", the old man is asked if he is British to which he replys, "I'm no pome". Look up the meaning. Its a bit of interesting history between England and Australia/New Zeland.

I didn't really want to see this movie at first, but once I did, I was amazed at how great Anthony Hopkins was in this film.
