  • Critic Reviews of "Being Evel"

    New York Magazine/Vulture

    There was a real darkness there - behind the American flags and the fringed jackets and the fireworks - and Being Evel, to its credit, isn't afraid to face it.
    August 21, 2015

    It doesn't illuminate the guy's character beyond what's obvious. Nor does it bestow much depth upon Knievel.

    Detroit News
    August 21, 2015

    "Being Evel" treads a fine line, making it clear that its subject was a heroic symbol of his times and a clear sports innovator while also acknowledging - and there's no getting around this - that the guy was a huge jerk.

    Los Angeles Times
    August 20, 2015

    A savvy documentary that gives the granddaddy of extreme sports his due while gauging the national climate that welcomed his shrewdly timed arrival.

    August 20, 2015

    Even if Daniel Junge's documentary falls a bit short of its goal, it deserves points for trying.

    New York Times
    August 20, 2015

    "Being Evel" largely nails his story.

    Epoch Times
    May 22, 2016

    Junge assembled some spectacularly dramatic and telling footage that evokes an era that is no so long ago, but feels so very far away.

    Directed by Daniel Junge and produced by stunt star and actor Johnny Knoxville, who also acts as a narrator and host (also a producer) this isn't just a documentary, it is a tribute, even though it doesn't shy away from showing Evel's dark side.

    One Guy's Opinion

    An entertaining film that's both a revealing profile of the man and a thought-provoking reflection on his broader cultural significance.

    This is very much a warts and all portrait, but in the process it brings us much closer to its subject, feeds a depth of appreciation many fans of those stunt shows will not have felt before.
    August 29, 2015

    Cultural identifiers don't come any bigger, meaner, or influential than Evel (nee Robert Craig) Knievel.

    Butler's Cinema Scene
    August 28, 2015

    Oscar-winning director Daniel Junge chronicles the man's life and lasting influence through a plethora of hair-raising news footage and the memories of those who knew him, hated him, and still revere him.
