Storyline

Since childhood, orphan Bobby "Evel" Knievel never could resist risks or keep out of trouble. He's determined to leave the mining town of 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 »

Not to bad
31 July 2004 | by MovieGuySW3883See 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
