A Review that Stays True to What the Film Gives.
28 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having just bought the DVD and finished watching it, I thought that it was a respectable effort and defiantly deserved 7 stars.

When I looked at the first review written about 3000 miles, I was shocked and damn right annoyed. I'm talking about VinventVega Who gave the film one star and then proceeded to rant about how bad it was. Let me tell you, it's not bad. It gives a good depiction of the Gumball experience. To all fans of the Gumball rally they should defiantly see this film. In comparison to the other Gumball films, it's on the same par as Gumball 3000: The Movie. If your a hardcore fan of jackass or anything related to Bam then you should see this too!

VincentVega made 6 points to illustrate why he has a personal vendetta against this film. Addressing the points I will give my opinion as both a fan of Gumball and Jackass related franchises.

1) The direction (if you can call it that) is nowhere to be found.

Well the direction of the film is that you go from A in London to B in L.A. In between A and B is all the driving, stunts, crazy antics and skating. The film clearly documents were they are going and what country they are in every time they get to their checkpoints. Remember Vega, This is a documentary which means that it is not scripted, so its direction is dynamic.

2) It's badly edited.

There is nothing wrong with the editing. Back that up with a cross reference.

3) The soundtrack is worse than that of any random porn movie.

I find the soundtrack to be random, because I can not associate it with any specific genre. The music is upbeat and flash. How you can associate the music with a porn flick is your problem.

4) The little dialogue there is, is inaudible either because the soundtrack is still playing at full volume (see: badly edited) or because the in-car engine-noise is too loud.

Complaining that there is little dialogue is just such a dumb thing to say. This is not scripted; this is real life, what the hell do you expect? Bam reading the works of Shakespeare. When Bam, Tony and the crew aren't doing anything too exciting they are talking to the cameras, filling the viewers in with what is going on. There is enough dialogue in the film for you to understand and enjoy what is going on! As for not being able to hear people talking at times, I can only account for this once. I couldn't hear Ryan Dunn very clearly because the windows of the car were down. The footage was probably added to the movie because what he said was witty. And for complaining about the noise of car engines... Simple answer, you can hear over the engine noise. Dumbass

5) The bits that are audible make it abundantly clear that the cast are more talented skaters than comedians. Also, their contempt for the fans lining the streets is despicable.

This comes down to taste. Having been a fan of Bam since the beginning of the CKY videos and a fan of Tony since the Pro Skater Games, I have always enjoyed what they have had to say. By saying such an ignorant thing like that makes you sound like a miserable old sod. They are not comedians but that doesn't mean that what they say is not funny, because in my opinion quite a lot is funny. About the comment with the fans, You can only say something like that with Bam, who is actually fed up of little kids coming up to him and asking him for photographs, autographs and what not. He might not want to do them but he still does. When kids are pounding on the windows asking for photographs, if he signs one... then has to sign all of them!

6) For a movie about a 3000-mile road trip, you would expect some nicely filmed driving action. There is none.

There is plenty of good driving action. There is some brilliant footage of the Gumballers driving through the Nevada desert among other places.

Being a fan of Gumball and jackass, this film was a hit for me. This film deserves a 6/10 at least! Don't let irrelevant reviews deter you from watching this film!
