Motorcycle stunt-riders perform death-defying tricks in state-of-the-art 3D. Risking life and limb by way of bikes, trikes, buses, motorcycles and semis-these are the things of Nitro Circus, and therefore this movie. Led by Travis Pastrana, Nitro Circus got its start back in the early 2000s when a collective of extreme sport buds started cranking out DVDs of their back-flipping, tumbling, face-in-the-dirt engine-propelled stunts.

First ever 10 on IMDb
29 December 2012 | by Big-MumfSee all my reviews

This is the first time I have given a film a 10! OK, it's not an adaptation of a Steven King novel, or a special effects laden Sci-Fi epic, what it is, is a group of friends living the dream.

Each 'character' is introduced in a witty and entertaining way, followed by insane stunts. Nitro Circus doesn't have the same cringe factor as Jackass and there's less of the mundane nut shots and basic jerking off that Jackass has, which makes it more appealing to Extreme sports enthusiasts as well as the general public who have grown weary of the Jackass boys trying to out do themselves.

The story is a journey to the live show in Las Vegas, which is explained well enough to keep the viewer entertained and involves 'us' in the excitement and anticipation of the climax of the film.

As mentioned in the title, this is the first film I have given a 10/10, I understand that if you're not into X Games or extreme sports this film may not appeal, but then, it might open your eyes to what some people are prepared to do for your entertainment as well as giving them the adrenalin rush some of 'us' need to live.

My advice is to turn out the lights, grab a few cold beers and enjoy the lunacy.
