1. The World's Fastest Indian (2005)

Motorcycle: 1920 Indian Scout "Burt Monro Special"
Rider: Anthony Hopkins
Complex Says: Burt Monro (Hopkins) didn't just build a world record-breaking bike in this movie. The real-life Burt Monro set three separate land-speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, in 1962, 1966, and 1967. The 1967 record of 190.07 mph is still the fastest-ever speed recorded on an Indian. Monro not only modified his bike himself to break those records, but constantly ferried it back and forth between his native New Zealand and Utah. That's not just badassery. That's perseverance and mad genius, too.
