Very Enjoyable Documentary
31 May 2006 | by (THAILAND, BANGKOK) – See all my reviews

This is truly is a great way to document the journey of the two best friends doing the things they love to do: Riding their bike and travel around the world.

And it happens to be our very own Obeiwan : Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. Starting off their bike from London on the 115 days journey to New York; crossing three continental – Europe, Northern Asia, And Northern America.

This is somewhat one of the most pleasant documentaries to watch. It is not just because we know we have an actual star in it but also the document shot in a very friendly ways and to the extent: personal. The document capture the meaning of friendship between the two best friends and new friends like one can see excessive appearance of producer, camera man, and the local people and so on. But most importance of all it is passion of traveling and riding bike.

Recommendation: Definitely A Must Watch

Rating: 8/10 (Grade: A-) Please

Rate My Review Yes/No, After Reading. Thanks!!
