Movie Info

Being a stuntwoman takes discipline, strength, coordination, courage and a sense of humor to get through the pain. Leaping over walls, taking a punch, landing a kick, feeling the heat of an explosion, and sometimes holding dangerously sharp objects, these are the routine dangers stuntwomen face at the office. Directed by April Wright (Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the Movie Palace) and narrated by Michelle Rodriguez (Widows, The Fast and the Furious), STUNTWOMEN: THE UNTOLD HOLLYWOOD STORY is the inspiring untold story about the unsung professionals, their struggles on screen to perform at the highest level, and their fight off-screen to be treated fairly and equally. The movie takes us behind-the-scenes and introduces us to the female stunt performers who drive the action and thrills of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster movies from the silent age of cinema to present day.

Critic Reviews for Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

Director April Wright has paired younger stuntwomen working today with older women who worked in the industry... It's an interesting device that works well to underscore how the industry has changed -- and in many ways how it has not.

December 6, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Stuntwomen is a documentary where significance outweighs simplistic filmmaking, and the access and subjects give it enough energy to keep it roughly engaging.

September 24, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

While the documentary successfully champions stunt women's dignity in the workplace, it lacks finesse - failing to showcase their talents in a way that would be exciting for an audience outside the industry.

While the result may be scattershot at times, the achievements of these badass professionals are worth a look - especially if, like this writer, you believe an Oscar category for stunt performers is long overdue.

A really fascinating look at a corner of the movie industry that isn't really talked about much.

There are enough highlights to make Wright's documentary worthwhile. I think it may serve as an inspiration for girls to learn stunt work.
