Critic Reviews for I Am Bolt

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (2)

  • What saves the film from being a mere commercial for Bolt's global entourage to enjoy are the tiny moments of unguarded intimacy: the snap of a coach at his laziness, or the sight of Bolt wheeling about in an empty hotel room looking out of sorts.

  • Winning docu celebrates world's fastest man; mild cursing.

  • The trade-off for this access is a reverential attitude and no in-depth questions. It's a deal I found easy to accept, given the film's endearing footage of Bolt at work and play.

  • Bolt's golden era may be too recent and the sponsors too dominant for any real warts to be included, but his charm and sheer physical wonder make this a compelling watch regardless.

  • It's not the most probing doco, but the man himself, mobbed wherever he goes, emerges as a genuinely charismatic, likeable individual.

  • I Am Bolt teaches you nothing at all other than that he's a nice guy, and possibly the greatest track athlete of all time.

    Bolt is a great athlete and the struggles to sustain this are quite interesting. The film isn't revealing and is probably a little too soon at this stage. A good doco but not much of an inside to the man. 14-05-2017.
