Since boyhood, orphan Bobby ‘Evel’ Knievel never could resist risks or keep out of trouble. He’s determined to leave the mining town Butte, willing to try any job or scam. Linda Bork agrees to join his adventurous life. Slowly he makes a name for himself using his gift with motorbikes – as an original, traveling stunt-rider. A nearly fatal jump and fall at Caesar’s Palace bring national fame. An unprecedented manned rocket canyon jump proves a nightmare challenge.
User Reviews: Well, there was something about this movie that prevented me from going to bed. The effects were awesome, at least for a t.v. special. I really enjoyed this movie. I suggest you all watch it. I mean, the movie provides a distinct character for who Evil was. The characterization was great. BUT!!! The scenes where Evil had to make a jump was poor, they were just cut scenes and nothing of the jump was really shown. Also, the creators of the film, missed some of the jumps he did. Like when he jumped 13 double decker buses and broke both of his femurs and announced he would never jump again. That part in the movie was totally skipped. Written from your #1 Movie Guy. Thank you for reading my statement
