"A humanistic exploration... chronicles Hawk’s prodigious, at times challenging, skateboarding career, but it also analyzes its subject with a keen psychological eye."
—Lena Wilson, The Wrap

"Whether you're a skateboarding fan or not, this is an engrossing look back at the unquestionably remarkable career of a true legend, and his story isn't over yet."
—Ethan Anderton, Slash Film

"An intimate and raw story of Hawk’s journey."
—Cheyenne Rountree, The Daily Beast

"The closing scenes, grappling with the complications of continuing to endanger one’s body at such an advanced age... is first funny, then philosophical, and then poignant."
—Jason Bailey, Crooked Marquee

"Jones still creates a captivating, edge-of-your-seat documentary that manages to make the idea of landing a trick a genuinely moving scenario."
—Ross Bonaime, Collider
