Unbelievably good!!
16 December 2014 | by Druid LordSee all my reviews

Incredibly good movie/documentary. Prior to watching this I had only heard his name and the longer I watched the more I enjoyed it. Everyone involved in making this film made it wonderful to watch. The story itself is simply amazing and the footage of Shane, his family, his friends and his incredible life is unbelievably awesome to experience. I would love to see this at an IMAX theater! Some of the first person views of his jumps makes you feel like you're there. I had no idea how awesome this movie and Shane's life was. So glad I saw it and I'll certainly watch it again- it's just that good. You don't have to be interested in skiing or BASE jumping to be blown away by it either. Simply put, watch this film!!
