Surprising
3 November 2001 | by (Edmonton, Canada) – See all my reviews

All I knew about Evel Knevel was that he was some nut that used to jump things on his motorcycle. This documentary filled me in. The man has real intelligence, compassion, and the least amount of fear I have seen in anyone who is not a socio-path. The footage of his jumps is unbelievable and frightening, and the interviews with him are intriguing. I think almost anyone would enjoy this movie, and I think almost anyone could get to like Knevel.
