  • 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.

  • If Bolt's talent continues to defy all explanation, the Turner brothers bring us close enough to it to witness bugs swarming over nerveless knuckles on the start line.

  • At times, I Am Bolt makes for very rousing viewing. However, there is a dispiriting sense here that the filmmakers don't have full control of their own movie.

  • Almost as engaging as the man himself.

    Nov 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for I Am Bolt

  • May 14, 2017
    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.
