Editorial Reviews

His life story reads like a soap opera script. Born Robert Craig Knievel, this wild, young man from the rough mining town of Butte, Montana dreamed of becoming rich and famous. After years of struggle, Bobbie's alter ego Evel Knievel became the world's most famous daredevil. His exploits are legendary and it's unlikely his accomplishments--or notoriety--will ever be duplicated. Now, he's paying a high price for the life he led. He lives in constant pain from the incredible abuse his body suffered during his daredevil days. As he enters the twilight of life, this 2-hour special may be his last chance at a public forum. He's a man who is outspoken, outrageous, at times hilarious, but always fascinating. From humble beginnings in Butte to iconic status and everything in between, Evel candidly shares every aspect of his life. The aging daredevil reflects on his incredible experiences and how he would like to be remembered.

I loved evel kneivel, I think absolute evel is the best documentary yet about the famous daredevil. It goes into great detail about his life, his jumps, and his failures. I have watched it over and over, I do not think I will ever get tired of watching a great program like this. I even had a evel kneivel bike that I got for christmas one year. I was the only kid in my small town that had one, and oh boy I got hurt on it a few times. I love Evel, Harley Davidson motorcycles and this fine video from the history channel.

Of all books and/or videos that are available-this is the most comprehensive picture your going to receive of the man and what he meant to all "Evel" fans. However the video does not address his bi-polar personality and other negative aspects of the man but lets face it you have to be mentally screwed up to do what he did. There is a book out on e-bay Evel Kneivel on tour by Saltman that is absolutely the worst read possible. They want 250.00 dollars for the book. I was able to inter library loan the book for free by the Carnegie library system in Pittsburgh. Never waste your money on this book. There are other biographical books on this man that are great as well.

"Absolute Evel" is a fascinating story about a dying breed in this country - The ultimate entrepreneur. Until I watched this DVD I was under a totally different opinion of Evel Knievel. However, after I saw how he grew up, everything he experienced as an individual, as a family man, how he crafted his rise to fame/success, as well as his failures in life, I had a new found respect for this man. This is an excellent movie to watch if you think that holding down a 8 to 5 job is tough way to make a living.

I have a few documentaries about Evel on DVD but this is the best by far. It has been very well put together and has footage of all the major jumps. Towards the end it even includes footage of his son Robbie doing the Ceaser's Palace jump his father first did back in 1968 (though with a much more modern bike). If you love Evel, don't hesitate in getting this documentary.

Disciples of Evel, you know who you are. You're the ones who built your own ramps to jump your bikes and motorcycles over what ever obstacles you could find. And sometimes you came down clean and other times you went over the handlebars and got your helmet scraped on the ground. You did remember to wear a helmet, didn't you? Robert Craig Knievel said you never got on a bike without your helmet. Find out more and more what Evel's mindset was as he entered the arena to risk death as a projectile propelled by a Harley Davidson. You're going to enjoy this doc.

And while you're at it, check Amazon for more DVD's and books about the King Of The Motorcycle Stuntment. The King with a helmet for a crown.
