Clarkson: Powered up, is not only for pure car enthusiasts. Although it is advised to like cars whatsoever. Otherwise you get stuck in the more serious parts inbetween.
The film has a lot of humor and funny quotes of mr. Clarkson himself. If you ever have seen the television show called Top Gear (UK) you would definitively know what I mean. I would say, this is Top Gear without James May (aka Captain Slow)and Richard Hammond (aka The Hamster). That it is somewhat like Top Gear is a good thing, but the charms that Captain Slow and the Hamster bring to the television show is somewhat missed. The guests like F1 driver Karun Chandhok and The Stig are also in the show. But that's all I have say about the casting of the movie.
The way everything is filmed was actually the way I expected to be. Nice overview shots from the helicopter, zoomed in details of cars and of course the gorgeous slomo's of fire popping out of exhausts and tires that are trying to get grip.
Also the sound is great, nicely chosen pieces of music and the soft and calm voice of mr. Clarkson himself.
The locations where is filmed are also stunning. The Alps in the southern of France with lots of hairpin corners and the tip of the iceberg the circuit of Paul Ricard are great.
If you like Top Gear, and you more or less fancy cars, this is the film for you to watch!
