Very Good Look at What Made McQueen
6 June 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

I Am Steve McQueen (2014)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Entertaining documentary taking a look at the man Steve McQueen and the movie star Steve McQueen. This documentary tries to show people what made McQueen so special to so many people and what impact his early death had on them. We get a lot of interviews here with his friends, admirers and even his children and grandchildren. Among the people interviewed are Ali MacGraw, Norman Jewison, Katherine Haber, Pierce Brosnan, Gary Oldman, Zoe Bell, Robert Vaughn, Ben Mankiewicz and Chad McQueen.

If you're a fan of McQueen then you're certainly going to want to watch this documentary narrated by Robert Downey, Jr.. I think fans of the actor are going to enjoy hearing all of these stories from some of the people who were the closest to him because they give you a great idea of what the actor was like away from the camera. At the same time, those unfamiliar with the actor are probably going to be the ones most entertained by this because it really does give them a great explanation as to why McQueen has become an icon. There are clips shown from all of his major movies and we hear about his love of doing stunts as well as his need for speed. His racing career also gets a lot of screen time.

I AM STEVE MCQUEEN is certainly a highly entertaining film that manages to show what made the actor so special.
