Goofs

Several anachronisms include: Aluminum beer cans were not in use in the '50s; hardhats in the 50's were made of steel, not plastic as portrayed. The helmet worn during the Caesar's Palace jump was a modern helmet with extra padding around the face not yet available in 1968. During the skating scene, Knievel wore skates not available at the time. See more »

Not to bad
31 July 2004 | by (Lancaster, New York) – See all my reviews

Well, there was something about this movie that prevented me from going to bed. The effects were awesome, at least for a t.v. special. I really enjoyed this movie. I suggest you all watch it. I mean, the movie provides a distinct character for who Evil was. The characterization was great. BUT!!! The scenes where Evil had to make a jump was poor, they were just cut scenes and nothing of the jump was really shown. Also, the creators of the film, missed some of the jumps he did. Like when he jumped 13 double decker buses and broke both of his femurs and announced he would never jump again. That part in the movie was totally skipped. Written from your #1 Movie Guy. Thank you for reading my statement
