Storyline

An action-adventure documentary chronicling the most notorious and dangerous race in the world--the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Rivaling the Indy 500 and 25 Hours of Daytona, the race across Baja's peninsula is unpredictable, grueling and raw--just like the uncharted American West of yesteryear. To capture the vast desert panoramas and intense action of the race, the film team utilized, fifty-five cameras, four helicopters, a four-passenger buggy camera car and a crew of over eighty people. Thousands of participants, generations of families and racing icons such as Robby Gordon, Mario Andretti, Jimmy Vasser and Motorcycle Supercross legend Mike Mouse McCoy joined together to experience the thrill and glory of the infamous race--an event of sheer human determination. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Gives term "up close and personal" a new meaning
31 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Independent movie making at it best. Documentary with great plot,suspense,characterization and "characters". My wife even liked it -- a lot! On the way home, she even asked if the steering and suspension was loose on our car, or was the road just a little bumpy?

The cinematography was awesome as well. The feel of this place called Baja was overwhelming. It was almost a space odyssey filmed right here on Mother Earth. Not sure I ever want to go there, but for a couple of hours I vicariously enjoyed watching the people who do.

Obviously, if you like anything with wheels, 2 or 4, that go fast and compete, you will like this movie. However this film really excels when it exposes the human drive in us all for what we do -- that special trait called Passion.
