Critic Reviews for The Sheik

All Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • A parade of talking heads, augmented by stock footage and photomontage for the bulk of the Sheik's wrestling days.

    March 2, 2016 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • It's a fascinating look at a fascinating man- at times, unintentionally so.

    April 17, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • More of a commercial for the wrestler than a true overview of life-shaping events, but the documentary scores in intimate moments and interviews.

    December 4, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Director Igal Hecht has pulled together a compelling film about an extraordinary man. There are moments of true heartbreak and tragedy mixed with wild road stories and the Iron Sheik's trademark over-the-top personality.
