Critic Reviews for Double Dare
Double Dare's weaknesses are only so apparent because of its many strengths.
Castellitto, who has won his country's best-actor award twice before, has such a haunting look in his eyes that he doesn't need to chew the scenery to get across his point. Cruz doesn't speak much, but her face screams of the pain that Italia faces.
It provides a frank portrait of women trying to make it in a traditionally male game.
Shows the hardship that women -- especially older women -- must endure in a male-dominated business.
Audience Reviews for Double Dare
The story of Jeannie Epper, legendary stunt woman (who doubled Linda Carter on the original "Wonder Woman" television series in the '70's amongst many, many other legendary projects) meeting and befriending New Zealander Zoe Bell (now legendary stunt woman who doubled Lucy Lawless on "Xena", Uma Thurman in "Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2" and starred in "Death Proof" as herself), mentoring her as she rises from relative obscurity to become globally known and respected for her natural talent. A warm and genuine story that shows that occasionally in showbiz, you can maintain your soul, be a good person and win the brass ring. Recommended.
"Double Dare" is a documentary about two Hollywood stuntwomen and their journey through a physically demanding industry. Even though I gave this film a low rating, there isn't anything wrong with it. I didn't really get into it but it was still interesting and informative. The main storyline of the documentary follows Zoe Bell as she transforms from Xena into Uma Thurman's double in "Kill Bill." I definitely have a greater appreciation for the endurance required by these warriors. I think that most people can appreciate this film but it because a lot cooler if you are a "Kill Bill" fan, even if the film is only included for 10 minutes. I enjoyed seeing Quentin Tarantino in this context, getting a glimpse into his world of casting. While it doesn't hold a ton of entertainment value like the documentaries that don't feel like documentaries, "Double Dare" serves its purpose and opens us up to the world of stuntwomen.
A good doc about what its like being Stunt Women. I have way more respect for stunt workers after seeing this.
