Disappointing
21 August 2014 | by JohnvredmondSee all my reviews

Watched this having just completed the Coast to Coast. Entertaining in middle aged bloody sort of way. But anyone who has walked it would not believe that you could do it whilst very unfit, permanently drunk ( I used another word that was banned) and carrying no or very little pack. There is a fair but of artistic licence. Places turn up in the wrong order. The best bits of the walk are not there. Neither are the worst. Interaction with people who live en route is completely missing. Not enough pain to be realistic. But if you forget the reality of the walk and just look at the stupid nonsense that 50 year old blokes get into, it's close enough to reality to be amusing.
