Critic Reviews

  1. 90
    Thrilling stunt footage aside, this is a film that celebrates the strength of women in the entertainment industry and these two separate stories are tied together perfectly by filmmaker Amanda Micheli.
  2. 80
    Given how well Micheli captures the personality and aspirations of two complicated professionals, it's too bad she never answers the key question: What makes one person a stuntwoman, and another a star?
  3. 80
    Fascinating, highly entertaining.
  4. The stuntwomen are also subject to the unbreakable law of Hollywood, that the advantage is always to the young and beautiful.
  5. Entertaining documentary about stuntwomen who do risky business for a living.
  6. 75
    It shows the hardship that women -- especially older women -- must endure in a male-dominated business.
  7. Amanda Micheli's candid documentary introduces us to two of these real-life daredevils, and it is a genuine pleasure.
  8. Reviewed by: Ty Burr

    Focuses on a parallel universe that moviegoers rarely consider: that of the invisible, hard-working craftspeople who put the illusion together.
  9. Very entertainingly takes us into the world of stuntwomen.
  10. 70
    Viewers are left feeling that it's still a male-dominated profession, but that determined women like these might just effect some small change.
  11. 70
    Zoe is lively and an astonishing athlete, but it's Jeannie who gives this film resonance.
  12. 70
    Micheli's documentary finds a fresh angle via the intersecting stories of two stuntwomen.
  13. 70
    The more interesting woman is Epper, who comes from a highly respected family of stunt doubles and at 62 shows no signs of slowing.
  14. 70
    It's a classic gal-pal movie, perfect for daughters, sisters, moms and the guys whose asses they kick.
