The critical consensus

Ultimately, despite the lack of critical perspective, this is an enjoyable and informative trawl through Fuller's life and career that will leave you wanting to fill up on his films.

***(*)(*)Matthew Turner, The List, 11/05/2015

Great on his early life, but doesn’t really illuminate his genius as a filmmaker.

***(*)(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 11/05/2015

The punning title is true; his bracing words narrated by admirers, Fuller’s amazing journey is lovingly honoured. Fuller Life, full of heart.

****(*)Kevin Harley, Total Film, 11/05/2015

Teenage hack, pulp novelist, war veteran … the film-maker’s daughter pieces together the extraordinary story of a larger-than-life character.

****(*)Steve Rose, The Guardian, 14/05/2015

A melancholic obsession with death and violence.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 14/05/2015

Does more than enough to get you excited about the films again.

Forrest Cardamenis, Little White Lies, 15/05/2015

Sam Fuller’s daughter tells the life story of this D-day veteran and legendary film-maker through his own words.
