This is a pretty cool and interesting documentary if you understand the subject matter going into it.

The movie primarily takes a look at two Holllwood stunt woman: Jeannie Epper, who doubled for Lynda Carter during the Wonder Woman series run, has been working in the business for approx 30yrs and comes from a whole family of professional stunt men and women; and Zoe Bell, a New Zealand native & young up and comer who doubled for Xena during that shows six seasons who is now looking to make her mark here in L.A./Hollywood.

We get the background of each woman, a look at the difficulties that women face in the business, a lot of celebrity interviews, and some additional celebrity cameos that the filmakers shot while making the film.

What I particularly enjoyed was the immediate bond between Epper and Bell. Epper seems to take Bell under her wing rather quickly by helping with valuable training and allowing her to stay at her home while she struggles to get work and make her own name in the stunt woman profession. It's a nice inside look that goes to show not everyone in "the business" is just out for themselves. Epper comes across with genuine eagerness, kindness, and integrity as she guides Bell through the Hollywood machine.

If the plot line so far interests you, or your a fan of shows like Wonder Woman and Xena, then this documentary should not disappoint.

Recommended.

This movie explores the lives of 2 incredible stuntwomen: Jeannie Epper (Wonder Woman, et. al.) and Zoe Bell (Xena). It provides an interesting look at the newcomer, Zoe, and her struggles in finding her way into this predominantly male profession. The profile of the legendary Jeannie Epper was very intriguing to me. At 60+ years of age, Jeannie is still going strong and still pursuing work. Amanda Micheli has done an incredible job putting this film together.

The DVD also contains some great interview footage with Lynda Carter and Lucy Lawless. The only disappointing aspect is the fact that more of Jeannie's Wonder Woman footage was not included. As I understand it, Micheli wanted more footage, but Warner Brothers was not cooperative. Who knows why???!!!

I also had the privilege of seeing this film in the theatre, along with a live Q & A sessions with Lynda Carter, Jeannie Epper, and Amanda Micheli. What a thrill. It was so great to hear Lynda and Jeannie recount their days on the Wonder Woman set and give praise to each other for their respective performances. Amanda also gave great insight into the making of the film and what her vision had been for the project. She is a super lady herself and presents a terrific documentary that you will want to check out.

I got a chance to see this movie in San Francisco a few weeks back and I absolutely fell in love with it. The story revolves two stuntwomen, one starting her career and one on the tail end of her career. You see the ups and downs of trying to get a career started and the ups and downs of trying to get one going. It's hard enough being a stuntperson at all, let alone being a woman in a job domminated by men.

The cameos in the movie by the likes of Steven Spielberg, and Quentin Tarantino are just added bonuses to make an already great movie just that much more interesting.

This is a great look at what goes on behind the scenes in a way you've probably never seen before. If you're a fan of action films, of filmmaking, or just of women who kick ass then pre-order this baby now. I just did.

Yes this documentary tries to be marketed to Kill Bill fans and Yes this documentary tries to be marketed to Xena fans....

BUT this documentary is so much more. It delivers a very interesting insight view into the hollywood industry showing the work of stunt artists - femal stunt artists - and how they work. A very intimate look at two outstanding artists of their profession and the DVD even offers more: the various deleted scenes, commentaries and interviews even deliver a wider range of information and insight and thus bring to the fan what no documentary before has delivered: a capable and intimate insight into the lives and works of female stunt artists, a profession that made films such as Kill Bill possible

And it was totally worth it. I learned so much about the stunt industry, about how things happen behind the scenes, and especially about these two women featured in the Documentary.

I was amazed at the amount of work, and pain that goes into being a good stunt woman. I was also touched by the loving nature of Jeannie Epper and how she helped out a friend who was dying even if could have possibly ended her career, when she was struggling to KEEP her career going.

This is just an amazing story, and one that every fan of movies in general should check out.

Double Dare is an in depth look into the lives of two stunt women in a profession dominated by men. Wonderful behind the scenes footage. I also really enjoyed the special features. There is a very interesting interview with Quentin Tarentino on women action heroes. I highly recommend Double Dare!
