Storyline

The definite biography told by the man who lived it himself, Evel Knievel. The undisputed King of the Daredevils. The Last Gladiator. His exploits are legendary and it's unlikely his accomplishments or notoriety will ever be duplicated. He was a self-made sports superstar whose only competitor was Death. And it was a foe he faced regularly throughout his life. No one, including Evel, ever believed he would live to old age. But Knievel has never been a man who did what was expected. Today, as he enters the twilight of his life, he is paying a high price for the life he led. Blood transfusions from his many near death injuries left him with Hepatitis C. In 1999 he had a liver transplant to ward off death once again. While still outspoken and controversial, his health has been fragile since this surgery. Although he is only 66 years old, today he lives in pain from the incredible abuse his body suffered during his days as a daredevil. No one can say for certain just how much longer he ...

An excellent slice of history
12 April 2006 | by (Western Desert United States) – See all my reviews

This biography was nicely done, with lots of facts and footage. There was plenty of action, but what I loved most was the way the piece was made to have you actually meet the man, Evel Knievel. You really got to see what kind of a person he was. You may end up liking him, or maybe not, but this is the real Evel Knievel.

This was also a great reminder to me of why I was such a big fan of his in the mid to late 70's. Evel Knievel was a true Superstar that transcended being just a motorcycle daredevil. He was a huge star, and a worldwide icon. But the man was always there, just a regular man.

There were also nice bits about his family, and how his life and his challenges affected them.

All-in-all, a well done piece. 8 out of 10.
