Critic Reviews for I Am Bolt

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

Bolt's golden era may be too recent and the sponsors too dominant for any real warts to be included, but his charm and sheer physical wonder make this a compelling watch regardless.

I Am Bolt teaches you nothing at all other than that he's a nice guy, and possibly the greatest track athlete of all time.

If Bolt's talent continues to defy all explanation, the Turner brothers bring us close enough to it to witness bugs swarming over nerveless knuckles on the start line.

At times, I Am Bolt makes for very rousing viewing. However, there is a dispiriting sense here that the filmmakers don't have full control of their own movie.

November 23, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A thrilling and warm documentary of a young man whose name is already in the history books.

November 23, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Almost as engaging as the man himself.

Audience Reviews for I Am Bolt

Bolt is a great athlete and the struggles to sustain this are quite interesting. The film isn't revealing and is probably a little too soon at this stage. A good doco but not much of an inside to the man. 14-05-2017.
