The opening credit with the film title appears as if painted on the road. The closing credits appear as if one looks down to the road while riding fast, with the credits floating over the asphalt. See more »
The first film that has affected me enough to bother writing a review. Excellent throughout, tense, terrifying, well filmed and good narration. Much more than just another bike documentary.
Few weak spots - narration, although technically good, was in a weak American tone, not ideally suited to something as British as the Isle of Man. Some of the solo footage of Guy riding was a bit weak. He was obviously not going fast, but made to appear so. The on boards were incredible. The atmosphere incredible. The passion incredible.
Never has a cinema completely full of men (99%) been so quiet for so long. The film finished to a stunned silence.
