All Critics (39) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (38) | Rotten (1)

  • 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.

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

    August 21, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "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.

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

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