      Joe Leydon Variety An entertaining inside view of the making of 'Smokey and the Bandit,' emphasizing the relationship between Burt Reynolds and Hal Needham. Mar 18, 2016 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Moss' doc doesn't just focus on Needham's directorial debut, but digs deep into the early careers of both men. Mar 15, 2016 Full Review Wendy Ide Screen International It packs a meaty double whammy for anyone interested in mainstream Hollywood in the 1970s and 1980s. Mar 14, 2016 Full Review Allen Almachar The MacGuffin All of the stock footage, old interviews, and behind the scenes shots were fairly interesting, but what we get about Burt Reynolds and Hall Needham were from a surface level. Rated: C+ Jul 13, 2020 Full Review Ed Travis Cinapse The Bandit does the Reynolds/Needham relationship justice, functions as a wonderful behind the scenes doc of Smokey and the Bandit, and it tells the story of Hollywood stuntmen and women Jan 27, 2019 Full Review Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News I'm happy to say this is a must for fans of "Smokey and the Bandit," but a strong enough film that even those who aren't fans will enjoy.
