Set in the golden era of Grand Prix Racing '1' tells the story of a generation of charismatic drivers who raced on the edge, risking their lives during Formula 1's deadliest period, and the men who stood up and changed the sport forever.
Brothers addicted to speed. At any price. Motorcycle road racing is the most dangerous of all motor sports. One in which men compete at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour on closed country roads. Roads that are lined with trees, telegraph posts, stone walls. Ireland and the Isle of Man are two of the few places in the world where the sport still survives. Narrated by Liam Neeson, this is the dramatic and poignant story of two sets of brothers from Northern Ireland who have dominated road racing for over thirty years. Two generations of one family that have been united by success. And united by tragedy.Written by
One of the best motorcycling films but terribly downbeat
This film is even more tragic given the current state of the Dunlop family and is almost the darkside of what the TT film presented.
The TT film actually gave the impression of that buzz they were all chasing whereas this gives the impression that it's simply the Dunlop fate to race until inevitable doom. I'm sure they were all chasing that feeling to the point of addiction, but the frenetic delivery of Guy Martin, which actually half makes you think doing 180 between lamp posts could be fun is the polar opposite of the Dunlops where it seems to be the only way of life.
I found the TT film to be quite uplifting but this is one of the most depressing films I've ever seen. Don't get me wrong, it's gripping stuff, even if you've grown up watching stuff like V-four Victory on VHS and already know a lot. Just get the hankies ready.
