I’m not really all that big on documentaries. I find they have three possible outcomes: Interesting, boring or bad. They can have a mix of any of the three (oddly enough I’ve seen ones that I would categorize as interesting and bad). This one would be interesting in my eyes.

Though it claims to be about a few different stunt-woman, they really mostly follow Zoe Bell around. It followed her from her days as stunting for Lucy Lawless on the set of Xena to more recently when she was the stunt girl for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill. It was interesting to note the struggles of female stunt people in a predominately male occupation. Not to mention interesting to see what happened to at least one of the people from behind the scenes of one of my all-time favorite TV series when I was younger (Xena!).

Honestly, if you curious about the subject, it’s a good movie to watch. Not really re-watchable in my eyes but, then again, few documentaries are.

Overall Opinion – 3/5
