He soars over snarling cougars and crates of poisonous snakes. Hurtles rows of buses, slams through walls of flame. Defies precipitous canyons and ornate hotel fountains. Garners wealth, fame and a Guinness Book of Records-setting 35 broken bones. “It’s going to be anything but dull,” Evel Knievel says about his life. Decked out in red, white and blue and exuding bravado, George Eads (
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
) plays the title role and John Badham (
Saturday Night Fever
) directs this decades-spanning story of the hard-living, steel-straddling man who went to daredevil extremes long before there was anything called Extreme Sports. Hop on and hang on. It’s time to fly with Evel Knievel.
