Now that the movie World's Fastest Indian is out of DVD, it's great opportunity for those of you who have not seen it, to do so. And if there's one movie that you should see, it's this one ! Everyone will immensely enjoy it, not just motorcycle fans. Anthony Hopkins, one of the best actors IMHO, plays Burt Munro, a New Zealander who had one big passion; brake the world speed record on a motorcycle.

For years, Burt worked on his "old" (1920!!) Indian Scout motorcycle, and then with money scraped from friends, raffles and house mortgages he actually manages to get himself over to Bonneville, the salt flats in the USA, to try to break the world record (in 1962). What makes this really interesting is that Burt was 63 when he broke the record the first time (206 mph - he broke it several times - his record still stands, though the 206 mph was broken in 1967).

The movie centers around the final months before the attempt, and Anthony Hopkins does a master job, probably one of his best ! What is so powerful in this movie, is that it shows that you should try your desires, no matter how old you are. The movie obviously takes a few liberties, but how much can you fit in a movie...

Here's the movie trailer:
