Storyline

Since boyhood, orphan Bobby 'Evel' Knievel never could resist risks or keep out of trouble. He's determined to leave the mining town Butte, willing to try any job or scam. Linda Bork agrees to join his adventurous life. Slowly he makes a name for himself using his gift with motorbikes - as an original, traveling stunt-rider. A nearly fatal jump and fall at Caesar's Palace bring national fame. An unprecedented manned rocket canyon jump proves a nightmare challenge. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

At the Ideal Toys meeting, execs are looking at a prototype of a cube puzzle - clearly a Rubik's Cube. Although Ideal did look at a design by Larry Nichols for a puzzle similar to the Rubik's Cube, the Nichols design was 2x2x2, not 3x3x3 as shown in the film, and was eventually rejected by Ideal. The Rubik design was invented in 1974 and was bought by Ideal in the late-1970s. See more »

30 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I wonder if the real Evel had anything to do with this? Not only was it nothing like what really happened, the movie also used many props that just did not exist! Like the Ceasars Palace jump in '68, Evel is wearing a full-face style of helmet that didn't even exist then! And the music in the background that was playing..Call Me the Breeze, by Lynrd Skynrd was a 1974 song! Was this movie supposed to appeal to todays kids only?

Because if it was, then these important facts don't matter!

Just like the battery flashlights in the 1997 movie Titanic! At least the always scrumptious Jamie Pressley was in it and looking fine!
