Absolutely breathtaking
21 February 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Words can not describe the beauty, brilliance and passion behind this movie.

The cinematography in this movie is world class and the quality of the picture in this movie clearly proves this. Combine this with a great director along with the vision of world class snowboarders and you have a snowboarding movie second to none. At a number of moments in the movie, I thought I could touch the snow it was that high def.

There's just nothing more I can say except go and watch it. Great movie for an outdoor enthusiast or a snow lover but if your as fanatically as snowboarding as I am than it's a must own movie that you will be sure to leave on repeat. (That's if you don't get too jealous watching these guys shred some of the most amazing runs you've ever seen.) Seriously thank you to Red Bull for investing so much money so this brilliant movie could be made.
