A production with more money than sense?!
21 October 2016 | by seb_riderSee all my reviews

Although really looking forward to it, I was disappointed with this film. On the plus side there are amazing riders with some brilliant footage for sure, and the cinematography and sound edits were great. However, the 'philosophical' stuff was rather annoying, "I'm a seeker", the fourth phase etc, it was just well overworked and badly cheesy, sorry! It is especially ironic that after this whole thing about understanding the weather cycles of Mother Earth, again this production, with more money than sense seemed to have picked the wrong places at the wrong time. This also happened in the Art of Flight. Getting this right is a skill that is lacking in this production, and maybe less would be more. The result was a lot of not very much. Good footage from Wyoming had to be used twice in the film by the look if it! Lastly, snowboarders doing the whole being cool thing...seriously, do we have to have this, are these guys not growing up yet!? The endless summer films achieved it with surfing decades ago, we are still waiting for the epic snowboard movie, this attempt was far off! Despite all the above, I'm sure plenty will enjoy this film. I won't be waiting for the Travis Rice show again myself.
