I Am Bolt tells the story of the legacy of the fastest man in history, Usain Bolt.
There’s nothing remarkably special about the documentary. You have to have been living under a rock to not know who Usain Bolt is and whenever he runs, he makes history, sending shockwaves through social, print, and visual media. What this documentary does show us is snippets of Bolt’s team, how hard he trains, and how much of a personality he is.
Despite being a force to be reckoned with on the track, he’s a man that struggles to know much outside of the world he’s been training in for the last ten or so years since he broke onto the scene in in 2007.
Though this film claims to show the “legacy” of Usain Bolt, and it’s clear he’ll leave a huge mark on the world, he’s still leaving his mark. His career isn’t yet completely over and he’s still a current figure that continues to write history. If this film was given some more time, maybe there would be something more to say and more of an ending to be given.
It’s still an interesting watch though nothing as extraordinary as the man the documentary is about.
