Christy Lemire FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It gets caught up in its own logistics in a way that's a bit of a drag, but Eddie Braun is a fascinating character. Jul 27, 2021 Full Review Dennis Harvey Variety Well-crafted, the film's appeal nonetheless depends greatly on whether you find Braun's quest brave and inspiring or sort of a pointless childhood dream that did not require adult actualization. Jul 22, 2021 Full Review Jennifer Green Common Sense Media Judging by how seared into Eddie Braun's young imagination Evel Knievel's 1974 attempt to rocket across an Idaho canyon was, this film could leave a similarly lasting impression on viewers today. Rated: 3/5 Jul 30, 2021 Full Review Johnny Loftus Decider Braun's commitment to the project is admirable, but Stuntman only offers superficial insight into his mindset as a married father of four. Jul 27, 2021 Full Review Andy Klein FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) A great tribute to Eddie Braun. Jul 27, 2021 Full Review Matt Lynch In Review Online But ultimately, Stuntman is a sincerely affecting and tense document of this notably more humble undertaking."
