Critic Reviews for The Sheik

All Critics (4)

A parade of talking heads, augmented by stock footage and photomontage for the bulk of the Sheik's wrestling days.

It's a fascinating look at a fascinating man- at times, unintentionally so.

April 17, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

More of a commercial for the wrestler than a true overview of life-shaping events, but the documentary scores in intimate moments and interviews.

December 4, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Director Igal Hecht has pulled together a compelling film about an extraordinary man. There are moments of true heartbreak and tragedy mixed with wild road stories and the Iron Sheik's trademark over-the-top personality.
