Not just for bikersBy a customer , 11 Apr 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm no biker but went along to a free screening of this yesterday. The verdict is this movie is so good I'll happily pay to go and see it again.
As a standard 2D film it would be absorbing but the 3D element really draws you into the thrills, spills, highs, desperate lows and utter passion of the TT races. This isn't just about bikes racing at quite literally breakneck speeds it's about all the people involved from the riders themselves, their families, the mechanics, and the officials to the fans who come from across the world.
A day later and I'm still taken aback by the experience. The strapline 'Just because you're breathing doesn't mean you're alive' is spot on. See the film and be moved. It deserves awards by the bucket load and offers more excitement than any blockbuster ever could.

I know nothing about motorbikes.By stefv (60 reviews) , 01 Feb 2013Fascinating. Why court death for a trophy ? Guy Martin comes across well as a passionate racer who just says whatever pops into his head. He made me laugh and laugh.

Life's here, don't miss it!By a customer , 26 Jan 2013Not just for petrol heads - everyone should watch this to remember the balance between how precious life is and how lucky we are to be able to really experience it - summed up for me by an American tourist's comment - 'You only get one lap of life, so why not make it a good one!
Top drawer nut jobs!By leicestergrit (17 reviews) , 23 Jan 2013Anyone who is a man and does not wear skinny jeans will like this. It has stupidly fast bikes and mental riders. What more do you want. 5 stars :)
