Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Being Evel" largely nails his story.
Fresh: Even if Daniel Junge's documentary falls a bit short of its goal, it deserves points for trying.
Fresh: A savvy documentary that gives the granddaddy of extreme sports his due while gauging the national climate that welcomed his shrewdly timed arrival.
Fresh: Both a comprehensive personality profile, as well as a smart depiction of Americana.
Just watch it
If you remember Evil as a kid a must see brought back a lot of memories
My Grandfather grew up in Butte with him and stayed in-touch with him. I will never forget the poster he signed for me I had for years, To Marc, Keep it on one wheel, happy landings, Evel Kneivel
This is an excellent film. Very entertaining and enlightening. Brings back memories of the 1970s and the man we all loved to watch on the Wide World of Sports. God bless Evel.
