No time to stop - must crack on
25 October 2020 | by imdb-23457See all my reviews

The journey becomes uninteresting after a while as it lacked the adventure of discovery of Long Way Round. Instead this becomes a sort of stamina journey to just get there on a tight schedule. The time on a bike affects the narrative and the spontaneous feeling of Long Way Round is absent in this which is a great shame. The friendship also appears to be a little forced in places and lacks the character give and take of the original. This time they are conscious of the commercial aspect of the trip and it loses something because of it. Disappointed.
