Saw world's fastest indian tonight.

It was a pretty good flick. Heart warming and all that. Made me want to get out and ride. The GF was all pumping me for knowledge on bonneville. Worth seeing, especially if you have an interest in bikes. Palatable even if you dont like them. Id give it a B+ if you like bikes, B if you dont.

If it is released closer to me I want to check it out. Right now I think it's still only playing in 4 theatres in Chicago.

Jack, you might as well come down here - I think it's still playing in downtown Highland Park (60015).

If you do, I wouldn't mind seeing it again.

We were there for the 3:05 showing. Great movie, even the wife liked it.
This is one I will own on DVD.
There was also a family there that drove 3 hours to come see it

GREAT MOVIE!!!!

Any motorcycle racer can relate to that movie! Actually you don't even need to be a motorcycle nutcase to like it. Great story line, had me laughing, crying, and my heart racing! I will buying it when it comes out on DVD.

The best part about it is it's for real. No hollywood bullshit that usually comes with a motorcycle movie. Everything is realistic, and its a true story.

The guy comes a long way to race his motorcycle, and spent his whole life dreaming of it and building the bike!

AGAIN!!! GREAT MOVIE!!!

We saw it at the Orland Park Marcus Theatre

If you buy the movie you have gotta watch the "real" movie. It's actually got Burt Munro in it and its really cool to see him actually and see how it relates to the movie.

I think he means the the footage in the "Extras" part of the DVD.
It really was a lot like the movie itself. they had scenes showing him casting the piston, and some interviews by him.

i sat down and watched this movie last night, and truely enjoyed it. Even if you are not a motorcycle person, to watch the story of a dying man get to make his dream come true, and the truely unique people he meets along the way, i don't know if it's a testiment of yesterday an america that is long gone and to often forgotten; or what, but either way, its was very pleasent to see that all the people he met were not out to screw him. He met nothing but nice people who after hearing his story were happy to help
