Enlightening and Entertaining

Well done, fair and thoughtful piece on the man we knew as Evel Knievel!


If I could rate this higher than five stars I would! If you grew up in the late 60's or 70's then you will smile and cringe like you did when you watched him do his stunts, this is one awesome documentary. If you didn't than you should watch this and learn about the amazing showman that he was and enjoy a well put together show!


I grew up with this mans historical jumps and rise to fame as a young man. I was touched and impressed with the justice that was done in this documentary as an old dude. A great American Hero. Nothing like him will ever be again in our culture but his name will live on as a catalyst for people to never give up.
